R&B legend isn’t dead yet, but the fight has already begun…

R&B legend Etta James is deathly sick, and her husband of 41 years, Artis Mills, is trying to get a court order issued that would give him control of over $1 million of her money.

Etta lives in the Woodcrest area of Riverside County and has been diagnosed with dementia. She’s also undergoing treatment for leukemia. A doctor has told the court that James cannot sign her name and she needs help with feeding, dressing and hygiene.

There will be a hearing Friday to determine if the order will be issued. James gave power of attorney to sons Donto James and Sametto James, and Donto’s wife Christy, in February 2008. Mills is challenging the power of attorney.
