Wynonna and Ashley Judd Excluded From Naomi Judd’s Will

Wynonna and Ashley Judd were reportedly left out of their late mother’s will.

According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Naomi Judd requested that her husband, Larry Strickland, be given “full authority and discretion” over any property that is a part of her estate “without the approval of any court” or permission from any beneficiary of the estate.

If for any reason Strickland is unable to serve as the executor, Judd named her husband’s brother, Reginald Strickland, and Wiatr & Associates President Daniel Kris Wiatr as the estate’s co-executors.

Judd prepared the will nearly five years prior to her death by suicide on April 30. Neither Wynonna nor Ashley have spoken out about their late mother’s final wishes.

Wynonna shared an Instagram post following her mother’s death saying, “There is so much happening in the world right now. So before I sat down to write this, I thought, ‘No…I just don’t know what to say.’ Then, I heard the words from my life coach asking me, ‘What do you know?’ And I began to cry,” she said. “I DO know, that the pain of losing Mom on 4/30 to suicide is so great, that I often feel like I’m not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did. This cannot be how The Judds story ends. I DO know, that in order to be a healthier grandparent to my firstborn grandchild Kaliyah…to break the cycle of addiction & family dysfunction, that I must continue to show up for myself {first} and do the personal healing work…I DO know, that I feel so helpless—right now especially. I really DO know, that I’m not able to do this grieving thing all by myself, and that it’s okay to reach out for help. I will continue to fight for my faith, for my SELF, for my family, and I WILL continue to show up & sing.”
