ELP star snubs ex in will

The Mail on Sunday - - The Broadchurch Files -

ROCK icon Keith Emer­son left his £1mil­lion es­tate to his two sons and Ja­panese girl­friend – but gave noth­ing to his ex-wife.

The Emer­son, Lake & Palmer key­board player, who shot him­self at his Cal­i­for­nia man­sion last March aged 71, left a bun­ga­low in Sus­sex, two Stein­way pi­anos, art­work and var­i­ous cars and mo­tor­bikes.

His will stated his col­lec­tion of awards, gold records and mem­o­ra­bilia should never be sold – but could be loaned to the Cleve­land Rock Mu­seum or Hard Rock Cafe.

Roy­al­ties from his work will be shared be­tween sons Aaron, 46, Da­mon, 40, and long-term girl­friend Mari Kawaguchi, 57. Ex-wife Eli­nor, mother of his sons, re­ceived noth­ing.
