They sang a powerful reconciliation song written by Naomi – ‘Love Can Build A Bridge’ in what was her last public performance before her suicide.

The autopsy report stated: ‘She suffered an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound and was transported to Williamson Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Per family, the deceased has previously had suicidal thoughts and stressors in recent life.

“A weapon and a note with suicidal connotations were found at the site of the deceased.”

According to the report, “the gunshot perforated through the right side of the scalp and entered the skull through an entry-type gunshot wound.”

The Judds were the most successful country singers of the 1980s, winning five Grammys, nine CMAs and selling 20 million records.

This comes after details of Naomi’s will came to light recently – when the late country singer named her husband, Larry, as the executor of her $25 million fortune.

And according to sources, it caused discontent among the family.

Older daughter Wynonna, 58, plans to challenge her mother’s will, which made no provision for her or her half-sister Ashley, 54.

Wynonna’s decision to backtrack on her mother’s wishes was driven by a deep-seated sense of injustice and simmering discord that has plagued the family for decades.

Speaking to DailyMail.com, the source revealed that Ashley has sided with Strickland over her mother’s decision.

“Ashley Judd has no problem with her late mother Naomi bequeathing her entire $25 million fortune to her second husband Larry Strickland,” the insider said.

“Ashley was never really about the money. She has a net worth of about $14 million, but leads a relatively simple life.’

In contrast, the source added, “finances are near and dear” to Wynonna, who has long had a difficult relationship with money, spending habits and with her mother whom she called “my beloved enemy.”

In the immediate aftermath of their mother’s death, Ashley and Wynonna supported each other in their loss, and attended her induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame on May 1, the day after their mother’s suicide.

But the sisters’ united front was reportedly short-lived. The source said: ‘[At first] Ashley and Wynonna really leaned on each other in their grief over Naomi’s death, but you knew it was only a matter of time before their age-old sisterly problems resurfaced.”

Country singer Naomi Judd left her two daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, in her will and instead named Larry Strickland, her husband of 33, as executor of her estate.

According to insiders, Wynonna is entitled to a ‘piece of the pie’ as the ‘lead singer’ of The Judds and that she made Naomi a global star from her work as a nurse in Nashville

Naomi had a tumultuous upbringing – and in part she attributed her depression to the sexual abuse she endured at the hands of an uncle when she was only three.

When she was 22, Naomi was raped and beaten by an ex-boyfriend, a trauma that forced her to flee Los Angeles to rural Kentucky, where she lived with her children on benefits while she trained as a nurse.

They lived in a house without electricity, telephone, television or indoor plumbing.

Naomi moved to Nashville when she graduated and eventually became a head nurse in an intensive care unit.

There she learned that a patient’s father was in the music industry. She made a tape on which she sang with Wynonna, gave it to him and ‘The Judds’ career in music was launched.

On May 29, a month after her mother’s death, Wynonna wrote an emotional Instagram post in which she spoke of her unbearable grief and fear that she would never be able to “surrender to the truth” of her mother’s way of life. left.

She wrote about “personal healing,” her feeling of being “helpless,” and the few things she knew despite so much desperation and drama.

She said she would continue to fight for her faith, for herself and her family, to keep “showing up and singing.”

And she vowed to “break the cycle of addiction and dysfunction” that haunts the Judd women and, with Grace’s incarceration, threatens to fall into yet another generation.
