They're Fighting Over Tom Petty's Affairs


Tom Petty’s widow is having a dispute with his kids, so she's taking them to court.  Dana York Petty has accused the rock legend’s two daughters from a previous marriage, Adria and Annakim Petty, of making it impossible to manage his estate. Tom granted his girls a say in his affairs before his death in 2017, but the widow says the girls are making it very difficult, and won’t let her release a 25th anniversary reissue of his album 'Wildflowers.' They have also lashed out against surviving members of their father’s band, The Heartbreakers. In an e-mail to the band members, Adria wrote, "What I don't have the temperament for is having my entire life raped. Being disparaged. My dad being disgraced. And being surrounded by selfish, unreliable people and drug addicts." Wow.

Dana Petty has requested that the court appoint a day-to-day manager for the estate, and to ask the daughters to calm down. Sadly, Tom Petty died of an accidental overdose in October 2017 at 66 years old.
