We reported to you a day ago that 73 year old Velma Warren Brown was claiming to have been James Brown’s first wife and to have never divorced him which would entitle her to a major chunk of the late singer’s $100million estate that’s now up for grabs by what seems to be a tribe of illegitimate children popping up everyday.
Well Velma did marry The Godfather Of Soul in 1953 as she states but a Georgia divorce record was filed for James Brown and Velma Warren in Richmond County in 1969. Velma’s lawyer now who is David Bell said he was unaware of the divorce filing back in 1969.
Velma still says that the couple produced a
heir daughter named Lisa Brown who was mentioned in the handwritten divorce settlement between Brown and Warren. Lisa was 5 at the time. Lisa was not mentioned in Brown’s will. It’s so ashame what people do for money.
