The premier comes amid criticisms from some regarding the state of the late singer’s finances. Coming from Wendy Williams, she claimed that her estate was being mismanaged.

“When Mrs. Franklin passed away, there was no secret that the finances were a mess,” Williams said. “In the meantime, get as much as you can from that big company and don’t have Cousin June Bug do the contract.”
