Just came across an old thread. According to contactmusic.com they never divorced and Glodean was the sole executor of his will.I dont know how the will was settled. His girlfriend had asked for the home they had lived in and said she would drop all other requests(for child support) but Glodean rejected that.

Yeah Barry and Glodean remained very close despite their separation. Barry's girlfriend was a snake though. She prevented Barry's children from seeing their father as he was dying from cancer.

Prevented??? How the heck can that happen? If the woman was just a girlfreind, children have more legal rights than her. And even if she WAS his wife, if his kids wanted to see him, and she was standing in the way, they should have knocked the bitch upside the head!

She also claimed that her child was Barry's. It was later proved to be untrue.

The sad story is detailed in the video/dvd we discussed at the time of his death. Barry's kids were pissed to say the least.


Is entitled "Let The Music Play", The Barry White Story.

Kdubya recommended this DVD to me.

It's wonderful and a definite must buy. Keep a dry hanky nearby cos it pulls at the heart strings.

I saw that on his "Biography" and I tried holding back tears. I was angry though because of what they said what his girlfriend did. I was like "that b***h!" LOL

Not that I'm a saint but Karma is a b***ch! When I cared for my estranged husband last year, I had him do a will while he was still able to speak and comprehend, taking nothing for myself and giving everything to his and our children. I didn't want anyone saying that I took advantage of the situation. He expressed in front of the lawyer that he wanted me to have everything but I felt that he was just grateful for me taking him in when I really, really, really didn't have to. But if I am, who I say I am, I wasn't going to step over him.

If the allegations are true about his girlfriend, she just may be feeling the effects of Karma as I type.

I have not seen the documentary but it looked as if Barry knew something about this girlfriend since he left affairs in Glodean's hands.

Barry reportedly didn't trust this girl. He had every right to believe that after I heard what his children said.

What happened between Barry & Glodean to cause them to separate? You can tell the love was still there.

How does that line in HM&TBN, song , "The Love I Lost",go? ."We loved each other,
we just couldn't get along".

But Barry might have figured that Glodean may have had to nail the girlfriend ,if she acted up ,and he was right. (Pun intended :-) )

Barry and Glodean probably had marital problems like many couples who been around for a long time but somehow the marriage suffers from some reason. Other than that, I would think they decided to remain friends. :-) Glodean was still singing background on Barry's albums right up until "Staying Power". And she spoke lovingly of Barry in their "Behind the Music" documentary.

Hello all,

I, too, recommend getting the 'Let The Music Play: The Barry White Story'. It was nice to hear Barry talk about his career in his own words. As everyone has already said here, the last chapter of the DVD that deals with his death was very sad but it also made me angry that a business manager along with the girlfriend can come in and completely begin making decisions about White's well being without the family's consent. This business manager, Shelly somebody and White's girlfriend, Katherin Denton, literally did everything to keep White's children and friends away from Barry while he lay dying. It was sickening. But I'm glad that Goldean got everything. She is still a beautiful woman but those nails?!? Whoa!

Peace out!

Hello all,

No. It's not the manager Shelly Berger from the Tempts/Supremes. The manager is a female.

Hey KevGo!

Peace!

Hey Common! What's up, girl! Gonna be in the Big Apple this Friday for a week! Shoot me an email with your particulars!

Thanks for the clarification regarding who "Shelly" is...After I posted the reply to Mike S., I realized that Shelly Berger only managed the Tempts. I'm glad it wasn't Mr. Berger who was involved with Barry.
