Owens claims that later that day she discovered a third will scrawled in a notebook that she found underneath the cushions of a living room couch.
The Associated Press reports that earlier this month, David Benet, a lawyer who has been working with Aretha for over 40 years, found two wills dated from 2010 locked in a cabinet. The documents are dated June 21, 2010; October 20, 2010 and March 31, 2014, according to a court filing regarding the matter.

The estate is involved in "many continuing projects. including various television and movie proposals, as well as dealing with various creditor claims and resulting litigation, " Bennett said.
