This man will never be allowed to rest peacefully.
James Brown's will has been a hot topic ever since his death on Christmas day last year, and this has continued now with a 45-year-old former air hostess and school teacher claiming she is the daughter of James Brown.
While some people may say the man probably was capable of fathering a handfull of children that somehow may have slipped under the radar, one may also just think it's an attempt to cash in on the sizeable assets left behind by the Godfather of soul.
"I've been walking around looking like this man for 45 years," said LaRhonda Petitt, the apparent 'daughter' of Brown, "I'm not talking no negative talk, I'm talking about what's right."
His will names six adult children, but at least three other people, including Petitt, say DNA testing proves they are his children.
Petitt, who was born and lives in Houston, Texas, said she would like all people claiming to be Brown's children to take a DNA test.
The above notion is probably fair enough, and let's hope this all comes to a calm resolve, for the sake of the great man who definitely had a profound and radical impact on the shift in black popular music in America, and music in general.
