NASHVILLE, Tenn. >> Singer Glen Campbell’s two oldest children are attempting to wrest control of his medical and financial decisions from his wife, Kim Campbell.

Debby Campbell-Cloyd and Travis Campbell say Kim Campbell is keeping their father “secluded from the rest of the family” which has been “prohibited from participating in his care and/or treatment,” according to a petition filed in a Nashville court last month.

The petition asks a judge to appoint conservators and a guardian to protect Glen Campbell’s interest. It was filed under seal, but a copy was sent to The Associated Press.

The County Music Hall of Fame member is in the late stages of Alzheimer’s and living at a long-term care facility.

Kim Campbell referred questions to her attorney, who did not comment because of the seal.
