GLEN CAMPBELL TELL-ALL LANDS WIDOW IN HOT SOUP!
KIDS FURIOUS SHE TRASHED COUNTRY ICON AS NASTY DRUNK
GLEN CAMPBELL’S adult children are on the warpath over his widow’s scathing new tell-all because it paints the legendary hitmaker as a booze-soaked maniac! In Kim Campbell’s “Gentle on My Mind: In Sickness and in Health with Glen Campbell,” she charged the “Galveston” singer “every night … drank himself unconscious” during much of their 35-year marriage. And when she once asked him not to get liquored up before a Las Vegas show, she alleged he poured a beer over her head! On another frightening occasion, Kim claimed he pointed a gun at her in a drunken rage!
The dark depiction of the beloved entertainer has infuriated kids Travis, Kelli and Wesley — Glen’s three oldest children from previous marriages, who have long been at odds with their dad’s fourth and final wife. “Dad had his problems with alcohol, and we all knew it. But this book just sensationalizes everything!” said Travis, 54. “My father is being demonized here — solely for her financial enrichment!” According to Kim’s book, Glen got bombed on their first date and wanted to “jump her bones” in his hotel room! Despite his allegedly bad behavior, Kim fell “hopelessly in love” with the “Wichita Lineman” singer. Travis, Kelli and Wesley previously charged Kim had convinced their Alzheimer’s-stricken father to write them out of his will, cheating them of a share of his $50 million estate before his 2017 death at age 81. His estate did not respond to a request for comment.
They’d also accused Kim and her children with Glen — Ashley, Shannon and Cal — of keeping them from seeing their father and alleged they’d taken advantage of him. Travis also claimed Kim overworked their diminished dad in his final days, sending him on a grueling 2014 tour that was filmed for the documentary “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me.”
“My dad wanted to do, like, five or six shows, but Kim drug him out for 150 dates,” Travis told The National ENQUIRER. “It was the wrong thing to do to a man who was suffering from the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s.
“That demonstrates who Kim is — it’s all about the money!”
Kim has insisted she did right by her husband during his final years, but Travis fears her book may tarnish Glen’s legacy.
“He was a good guy and a loving father,” Travis said. “I hate to think the image they’ll take away from all this was that he was a mean, abusive drunk!”
