The American music icon was the recepient of many awards including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction to name a few.
King was recently in the news after this three children, Karen Williams, Rita Washington and Patty King, requested a legal guardianship over their father stating that his longtime manager, Laverne Toney, was stealing money from the musician, not giving him proper medical care and not allowing anyone to see him in his home hospice care, according to the Associated Press.
Clark County Family Court Hearing Master Jon Norheim dismissed the request for legal guardianship on the grounds that after two investigations, there was no evidence that King had suffered from abuse.
