A U.S. court has overturned a settlement plan to carve up late soul singer James Brown's estate.

Attorney general Henry MCMaster offered up a deal in 2009 that would give nearly a half the soul man's fortune to a charitable trust, a quarter to his widow, Tomi Rae Hynie, and the remainder of the funds to his adult children.

But on Wednesday (27Feb13), justices of the South Carolina Supreme Court determined the agreement didn't abide by the hitmaker's wishes, stating Brown wanted to donate the majority of his money to charity.

The authorities ordered the trustees back to a lower court to come up with a better plan, according to the Associated Press.

The Godfather of Soul passed away on Christmas Day (25Dec) in 2006, aged 73.
