Glen Campbell’s will excludes three of his eight kids, according to documents filed in Davidson County Probate Court in Nashville, and family bickering before his death reportedly was likely to continue.

The 81-year-old country music legend died Aug. 8 after suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

The Tennessean reported that Campbell’s 13-page will, dated Sept. 1, 2006, stated that his daughter Kelli Campbell and sons William Travis Campbell and Wesley Kane Campbell should not have any direct benefit from his estate.

Rolling Stone magazine said Campbell's estate is estimated at about $50 million.

According to The Tennessean, the will stated that the "Rhinestone Cowboy" singer was "specifically excluding" the three children from receiving anything under the will or a related trust. It named his wife, Kim, as the executor.

The court documents listed his other five other children being provided for: Debra Cloyd and Dillon, Nicklaus, Shannon and Ashley Campbell. Rolling Stone said the three left out are children Campbell had with his second wife Billie Jean Nunley.

The Tennessean said a hearing on the will is slated for Jan. 18 before Davidson Probate Judge David "Randy" Kennedy, but will likely be just the beginning of a long court battle over the singer's fortune.

Under the will, according to The Tennessean, one-half of Kim Campbell's bequest will go to the family trust.

The petition states that while Glen Campbell owned no real estate in Nashville, he does have holdings elsewhere, The Tennessean reported.

The battle over Campbell has been ongoing, with Debby Campbell-Cloyd and Travis Campbell accusing Kim Campbell of keeping their father secluded from the rest of the family and possibly mishandling his finances, The Mirror reported.

Campbell's youngest daughter Ashley defended her mother Kim in a Facebook post before Glen Campbell died, per the website Wide Open Country.

"My mother Kim has endured unspeakable heartache and has selflessly and lovingly cared for my dad through every step of his disease and continues to do so," Ashley Campbell wrote. "She has never denied any of his children a visit, including Debby and Travis who see him regularly yet continue to spread malicious lies about her…They have visitation rights, so what else do they want? One answer: the limelight."
