Bee Gee's Robin Gibb's Will Made Public

GibbsMusician  Robin Gibb's will was recently made public. The will explained quite a bit of complicated history. Gibb left some of his estate to his wife, his mistress and his four children from the two women and his ex wife. 

The singer died last year from colon cancer. He left the bulk of his £25.8 million estate to his second wife, Dwina.  Spencer and Melissa, Gibb's two children from his first wife Molly Hullis who Gibb left in 1980, each received £500,000. Gibb's mistress Clair Yang, and mother of his four year old daughter received an £800,000 house and  £4 million in the bank for his daughter's future education. Gibb's son with his second wife, Robin John (RJ), will have to wait till Dwina, passes so that Spencer, Melissa, and RJ can divide the rest of the estate. RJ was left nothing from the will. People say wills lay out what relationships meant the most to them or by omission which ones meant less.
