New York, NY — March 19, 2018 – In an exclusive airing on Monday, INSIDE EDITION’s Victoria Recano speaks with Kim Campbell, the widow of country legend, Glen Campbell, who breaks her silence about the family’s bitter feud over his $50 million estate and accusations that she blocked some of his children from visiting Glen in his final years as he battled Alzheimer’s.

 

Glen Campbell died last August after a long battle with the disease. Two of his children from another marriage took Kim to court claiming she blocked them from visiting their father at his Nashville nursing home. Kim denies keeping Glen’s children away from him. “I never ever denied them a visit ever,” she tells INSIDE EDITION. “They never called me to ask how he was doing or if they could help.”

 

Now, three of Glen’s children, including his eldest son, Travis, are suing after they were left out of their father’s will. Kim says, “That was all done in 2002, and that was a choice made by Glen, not me. And there were reasons for it. Travis hadn’t visited his dad in 20 years.”

 

Kim is also sounding off against country star Tanya Tucker, who came to INSIDE EDITION after his death to sing a tribute song about Glen, with whom she had a romantic relationship with in the early 1980s.

 

This Tanya Tucker, who dated my husband for a hot minute 35 years ago, going on TV the day after my husband died, [writing] “Forever Loving You,” exploiting my husband,” she says.

 

But Kim tells INSIDE EDITION she wants to move past the drama. She’s working with Global Alzheimer’s Platform Foundation, which is partnering with the ride service, Lyft, to provide transportation for people with Alzheimer’s who participate in clinical trials. 

 

Tanya Tucker sent INSIDE EDITION a statement saying she has “nothing but love in heart for the entire Campbell family,” adding that she released her tribute song to Glen to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
