Seven of Ray Charles’ children have been sued by members of the late singer’s charity foundation, reports CNN.

Executives behind The Ray Charles Foundation claim they were named the sole benefactors, with Charles setting up a $500,000 trust for each of his kids in exchange for a guarantee that they “relinquished and waived any further claims to their father’s estate.”

However, Charles’ adult children have recently claimed ownership of their dad’s musical catalogue and now the foundation has launched a legal battle against the star’s heirs in a bid to win back the rights.
