Bobby Womack’s family reveals they are broke. What happened is when the singer-songwriter and musician recording artist since the early 1960s, when his career started to take off when he was the lead singer of his family musical group the Valentinos died in June his debt didn’t. What he left behind was a huge amount, which includes child support, and at this time his family is trying to figure how to get it paid.
Bobby’s widow, Regina, filed court docs in L.A. showing he owed $250K in back child support for two sons living in Ft. Wayne, IN — one is 14 and the other an adult. He also had an unpaid loan for $400K when he died.
But Womack didn’t leave much in the way of assets — according to the docs he had $52K in cash and $7,250 in personal belongings, which included some jewelry and a 1974 Buick.
Regina says Womack also had music rights and royalties valued around $350K — which will help pay down the debt — if she can capitalize on renewed interest in his music since his death.
But Regina’s a realist … admitting the value of Bobby’s music could fade quickly. In other words, help a sister out … buy some Bobby tunes now!
