Barry White's Family In Row Over Will

The family of music legend BARRY WHITE are embroiled in a dispute over his multi-million dollar fortune - just days after the soul legend passed away.

White - who died of kidney failure on Friday (4JUL03), aged 58 - left two ex-wives, nine children and a lover.

His girlfriend, KATHERINE DENTON, 37, gave birth to a daughter, BARIANNA, four weeks before his death and is claiming a share of the millionaire's estate.

But White's family is refusing to acknowledge her claim, alleging Katherine will not agree to a paternity test.

The LET THE MUSIC PLAY crooner's daughter, SHAEAHRA, 26, says, "My father has eight children, not nine. There is some question whether the baby is his.

"He was in hospital when it was claimed she was pregnant with his baby. We have no way of knowing if it is my father's baby yet. That remains to be seen."

And to further complicate matters, there is said to be a rift developing between White's first wife, MARY - mother of four of his children - and his estranged second wife, GLODEAN.

Both claim they are owed the largest share of his money, while White's children are also reportedly questioning his will.

isn't it funny that the fight over the money begins after the person is gone. Everyone wants a piece of the pie - too bad he isn't still with us -so we can enjoy his music. All they can think about is his money he left behind - how about what he gave to everyone while he was alive!

God bless him as he gave us years of joy with his music and beautiful voice. His family should shed a tear at his loss and not fight over his fortune.Its shameful and no amount of money can bring him back. This is what they all must realise! SHAME ON YOU ALL
