James Brown finally at rest but who's paying the bills ?

After not being laid to rest for three months there is still controversy over James Brown. Now it's over who is going to pay the $70,000 bill for his funeral.
And will this be his final resting place ?
The finger pointing has started. The trust says that,
"It was the children that ran up a funeral bill of over $150,000, not the trustees.Some money has been paid to Mr. Charles Reid, who is the manager of the funeral home."I really haven't pushed the issue, even though I'd like to have my money."
Money has been sent to cover the outstanding balance by the trustees this week.
James Brown's adult children have filed a motion with the courts asking for accounting records of the trust before and after his death.
Also they are alleging that the trust has been trying to sell their fathers assets against the order of the court and that they want more control of his assets.
A hearing will be this month to hear on these motions. Also to be heard at this time will be a request to appoint a guardian to determine the paternity of Mr. Browns partner's son.
The family is planning to have a public mausoleum built for the body of their father.Hopefully to be his final resting place, whenever and wherever it is built that is.
