Naomi Judd formed half of country music duo The Judds. Wynonna, her daughter, was her musical partner for many decades. They shared many awards, including five Grammys and 15 number one hits. Wynonna and Ashley, Wynonna’s sister, lost their mother to suicide in April. Rumors have subsequently spread that the sisters are fighting over their mother’s estate. A new interview was conducted with PeopleWynonna put to rest all the gossip.

‘Why Would We Be Fighting Over The Will?’

A new cover story is available for People, Wynonna is openly discussing her family life. According to the country icon, she was shocked to hear that people believed she was fighting with Ashley over their mother’s estate. “Someone told me while I was at Ashley’s house, ‘Hey, did you know that they’re saying this about you?’ I went, ‘Huh? I’m fighting with Ashley? Oh. Again?”” Wynonna recalls. “Fighting over what? I have such a great life. Ashley has a great life. Why would we be fighting over the will?”

Naomi had named Larry Strickland her husband before her April death. Wynonna says that she and Ashley will be executors of her will “split” Naomi’s estate when their stepfather dies—a plan that she has no issues with. In fact, Wynonna says she never would have even thought about contesting her mother’s will. “I am the last person in this family—and if Ashley was here, I’d hope she’d agree with me—who knows stuff like this,”She admitted it. “I’m not savvy enough to go, ‘I’m going to contest the will.’ It never occurred to me.”

Wynonna says Ashley and Wynonna are closer than ever

According to the musician, she and Ashley have only grown closer since their mother’s passing. “I feel like we’re connected in a way that is so different because I’m an orphan,”She said. “Both my parents are gone, and I’m relying on Ashley. She’s relying on me in a different way that’s about compassion. It’s not about being successful and smart and capable. It’s about, ‘I love you.’ ‘I love you, too.’ We’re vulnerable with each other, and we’re tender.”

Wynonna admits that she and Ashley haven’t always gotten along. “As sisters, we disagree on so much,”She elaborates. “But when it comes to our mother, we both look at each other and go, ‘She was quite the character’ … Ashley and I are very different people, and we are learning that we have more in common than we don’t.”

Shortly before her death, Naomi and Wynonna announced they’d be reuniting for a final tour. Instead of canceling after the tragic news broke, Wynonna decided to keep the tour dates, using the performances to celebrate her mother’s life and legacy.

To fill in for her mother, she’s getting help from some of the biggest names in country music, including Faith Hill and Trisha Yearwood. The legendary musician’s final farewell was said by fans on the September 30th, as the tour started.
