The estate of Tom Petty is in the middle of an estate battle.
Family conflict can be rekindled with the death of a mutual loved one.
Such seems to be the case with the surviving family members of Tom Petty.
According to a recent iHeartRadio article titled “Tom Petty's Widow, Daughters Battling Over His Estate,” the conflict involves the “artistic property” of Tom Petty.
Dana York Petty wanted to include unreleased tracks onto a 25th anniversary Wildflower album.
The two daughters of Tom from previous marriages are putting up a fight.
They claim his artistic property was to be jointly managed as a team by them and Dana.
The unreleased songs are of special interest to his fans.
Petty had originally planned for Wildflowers to be a double album.
His record label convinced him to cut songs.
These songs were something he wanted to share with the world.
Family conflict may delay this dream a bit longer.
