ELP star snubs ex in will
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.
