After Billy Brown’s death, his wife Ami has taken over her husband’s estate. Valued at over $410,000, she was the one who got approval for representing the estate.

According to Soap Dirt, the family patriarch also owes a whopping amount of $30,000 for medical bills. A man named Robert Maughon also filed for inclusion as a creditor and a civil suit against the estate. Robert also claims that he gave Billy $20,000 and the patriarch was supposed to give him 10% of productions of royalties for a decade. According to the suit, he paid Billy another $10,000 two weeks later. That allegedly entitles him to a total of 10% of his lifetime earnings whether it is from movies, books, TV shows, and so on.
