I guess the ole saying is true… “You can’t take it with you”!

The late great Aretha Franklin died having not cashed checks totaling almost a million dollars!

The discovery was made after an inventory found checks from various sources like, Sound Exchange, Screen Writers Guild, BMI and many more!

According to court documents recently filed, the “Natural Woman” singer was in possession of roughly about $988,000 worth of uncashed checks!

According to Billboard, Franklin who died at the age of 76, also left several handwritten wills.  If valid, this could change the way all four of her children divide her estate.
