Legal experts speculate on why Ashley and Wynonna Judd may not be joining Naomi's will

Legal experts speculate on why Ashley and Wynonna Judd may not be joining Naomi's will ...

Naomi Judd's decision to name her husband Larry Strickland executor of her will is not unusual, but it may be perceived as a disgrace toward her daughters, according to a legal expert exclusively.

AttorneyHolly Davis claims that leaving out Naomi's daughters seems like a conscious choice.

According to court filings obtained by Page Six on Monday, Naomi, who died by suicide on April 30, chose to name her husband of 33 years as the executor of her estate.

Jason Goldman, a criminal defense attorney, tells Page Six that she was advised by a county legend to choose her spouse over her two daughters because it would be less messy and less litigious.

When you factor in the existence of many children, long, divided wills are inevitably the target of misinterpretation and catastrophe.

The Love Can Build a Bridge singer requests that her husband exercise full authority and discretion over any property that is an asset to her estate without the approval of any court or permission of any beneficiary of the estate.

Because their names weren't specifically stated in the will, Wynonna, 58, and Ashley, 54, aren't certain if they will benefit from any of their mothers' fortunes.

Despite Goldman's assertion, the two have trusts that were established prior to her death.

Naomi's hard assets, which may have already been bestowed upon the children via title transfers, were not mentioned in the will itself, according to the New York attorney who did not work on Naomi's will personally.

Goldman believes that Strickland, 76, can create an inheritance that fits his wishes for the children as executor in any river of time book.

Naomi acknowledges that she may have already taken care of her daughters through their own trusts, or perhaps previous gifts before she died, but their absence from the will is noteworthy.

Naomi Judd, the founding partner of Kirker Davis LLP, had issues with her mental health and depression, which eventually led to her suicide. However, we will find out if there will be a will contest between the husband and the daughters in the coming days.

Naomi's lawyer, who prepared her will, has not responded to repeated inquiries for clarification on who the grandpas were at the time of her signing her will on November 20, 2017. Her publicist has also declined to comment.

Naomi, who battled depression for a life-long and public period, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Wynonna and Ashley have both commented on losing their mother to mental illness, but have yet to speak out about the memorial to the late singers.

Davis claims that if Naomi was unutifully influenced by her spouse in her final months or years, they might file a lawsuit on her behalf.

Page Six's plea for comment was denied by Wynonna and Ashley's reps.
