Singer Glen Campbell’s two oldest children are attempting to wrest control of his medical and financial decisions away from his wife of 32 years, Kim Campbell.
Debby Campbell-Cloyd and Travis Campbell claim that Kim Campbell is keeping their father “secluded from the rest of the family” which has been “prohibited from participating in his care and/or treatment,” according to a petition filed in a Nashville court.
The petition asks a judge to appoint conservators and a guardian to protect Glen Campbell’s interest. The 78-year-old Country Music Hall of Fame member is in the late stages of Alzheimer’s disease and living at a Nashville long-term care facility.
In a response to an earlier criticism from Campbell-Cloyd over her decision to move her husband to the facility, Kim Campbell said: “It is crushingly sad to see him afflicted with Alzheimer’s but indulging those feelings does not help him. I am his wife and no one wants him home more than me but I must do what is in his best interest.”
