A battle is brewing between Tom Petty's widow and his two daughters over his unreleased music.
Dana York Petty, Tom's widow, claims she runs his estate but that Tom insisted that his daughters be involved in any decisions regarding the estate, including anything to do with his music as a solo artist or with The Heartbreakers.
According to TMZ, Dana believes that Adria and Annakim Petty, Tom's daughters from a previous marriage, have "conspired" to push her out and make it difficult for her to manage the estate.
Dana wants an order from a judge appointing a day-to-day manager for the estate and forcing Adria, in particular, to act rationally, TMZ notes.
Dana hasn't been the only one on the girls' radar, as they've even taken members of The Heartbreakers to task.
In court documents, Dana included an email from Adria sent to two surviving members of the band.
"What I don't have the temperament for is having my entire life raped. Being disparaged. My dad being disgraced. And being surrounded by selfish, unreliable people and drug addicts," she allegedly wrote. "I am sorry I am not a man and can not earn your respect through the work and deeds I do."
Dana argues the girls are blocking the release of new solo songs that Tom recorded in the '90s. Adria, Dana claims, gave no reason as to why the songs shouldn't be released, other than to say the timing was off.
The songs, Dana believes, would produce about a million dollars in royalties.
Adria, however, has said Dana is ignoring Tom's wishes in his will and wants a judge to make everyone stick with the will.
Tom died in October 2017 of an accidental overdose.
