It’s especially surprising given that she has a special needs son named Clarence who needs financial and other forms of support for his entire life.
She gave birth to Clarence ,her first son at 13.
According to Michigan law, Aretha’s four kids will share that hefty fortune equally.
Aretha passed away on August 17 in Detroit after a long fight with pancreatic cancer.
