If you’ve been awake and cognizant over the past 10 years, you know that high-profile celebrity deaths are often followed with tons of drama. It looks like B.B. King, who passed away on May 14 from diabetes complications, will be your latest example.

His daughters Karen Williams and Patty King believe their father was poisoned. They say they were stopped from visiting their ailing father, while his business manager LaVerne Toney and personal assistant Myron Johnson abused him.

“I believe my father was murdered,” they said.

There’s been rumors of abuse while King was in hospice care, but this time the allegations are coming directly from his heirs. An affidavit from Patty King even claims that she saw Johnson give him two drops of an unknown substance.

The allegations are being taken seriously. Las Vegas homicide detectives are investigating, although they haven’t provided much details. We’ll update you as this case progresses.
