James Brown's Daughter Upset About Final Resting Place

Subscribe to James Brown alerts

James Brown's secret love child is fighting the late soul star's estate in an effort to allow fans to visit his final resting place. LaRhonda Petit Brown claims the singer is currently buried in a crypt in the garden of one of his legitimate daughters - but she thinks Brown's grave should be accessible to all. The 45-year-old hopes her half-brothers and sisters see sense and create a Graceland-style memorial to their father, who died on Christmas Day (25Dec06). At Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, Elvis Presley is buried yards away from the front door of the home he loved and died in, and fans visit his final resting place in droves. Petit Brown, who is still waiting to hear what she'll inherit when her late father's estate is divided up, tells America's the Globe, "My father must be spinning in his grave right now, knowing his burial site is off limits to his adoring public. "I want him moved and I want him moved now."
