James Brown's Former Producer Battles With Family AND Al Sharpton Over His Estate

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersSad Sad


It's sad that it's come to this.

James Brown's former producer, Jacque Hollander, is fighting with the deceased star's family AND Rev. Al Sharpton over his estate.

She is suing Brown's children over a settlement agreement that gives his children a share of his $100 million estate - 50% of it to be exact. Hollander says that Brown wanted the majority of his money to go to two trusts, including one for his grandchildren's education and another to fund the "I Feel Good" Trust, which helps fund the education of kids in Georgia and South Carolina.

In his will, he left personal and household items to his six children and wrote that if he failed to mention any other relatives, "such failure is intentional and not occasioned by accident or mistake."


His daughter, Deanna Brown Thomas said that she and her siblgings were fighting to overturn the will because they believed that it does not accurately reflect their father's true wishes.

And to make matters worse, Rev. Al Sharpton has gotten involved and is siding with the children because "he was left out of it."

Sources say, "he always felt that he would walk away with a pretty sizeable chunk of James Brown and was left nothing."

UGH. Is there anything that Al Sharpton DOESN'T get involved with??

Just let the poor man rest in peace.

    Sharpton is one of the most racist son of a bitches on this planet. Blacks should be appalled he "represents" them and the fact he calls himself a Reverend is disgusting. Why doesn't he do something for the human species instead of simply blaming whites for everything.

    The blacks blame whitey, just like the Arabs blame the Jews, for everything that goes wrong.
    What would Arab despots do if they didn't have a "boogie man" to blame for their brutal rule over their people?
    Kinda like the world blames America for it's problems.
    It's all about the shakedown… from one man in Harlem to every country in the world.
    Now we're broke.
    The Golden Goose is gone.
    We American whiteys (and all other non-moocher citizens of every color)
    that created the wealth, are fucking mad as hell and we aren't going to take it anymore!

    I started going to concerts in 1962, when I was 12, with my parents.
    I've seen hundred of concerts in my lifetime.
    James Brown is in my Top 10 list, of unbelievably great performances.
    Wish the youngsters of today, could see what I have seen!

    Al Sharpton is so DISGUSTING. I cant stand him. He is such a fake reverend. All he cares about is money/fame & his own well being. I remember he was caught speaking bad about President Obama then he had the nerve to cry when he won? hes so fucking fake.

RIP James Brown i loved your music it will live on forever!

    There's no mention of Sharpton's alleged professional or personal connection that outlines specifics as to why he feels this way. Perhaps he's just helping James Brown's biological children?
