Apparently, these lovely ladies were huge support systems for Nat King Cole's daughter as she struggled with Hepatitis C.

But her gal pals aren't the only beneficiaries in the star's will. The Unforgettable performer's son, Robert Yancy, and several other relatives were named.

The legal docs listed Natalie's assets amounted to $1.3 million, and also mentioned that she had a trust with other assets and a confidential amount of cash.
