The granddaughter of renowned singer Nina Simone says that Kamala Harris nearly drove her mother to suicide after she caused her family to lose control of her mother’s estate.
ReAnna Simone Kelly wrote on Twitter on Saturday:
“Nina’s granddaughter here. My family doesn’t run her estate anymore. It was taken away from us [and] given to white people. Our family name was DRAGGED in the media. We get NO royalties, nothing. Wanna hold someone accountable? Ask Kamala Harris why she came for my family.”

“As I said before, Ask her why she separated my family, Ask her why my grandmother’s estate is in SHAMBLES now. Ask her why we as her family no longer own the rights to anything. Ask her why she bullied my mother in court and my mom almost killed herself from the depression.”
A 2016 settlement regarding the Nina Simone Charitable Trust refers to Harris multiple times for her “primary responsibility for supervising charitable trusts in California” as state attorney general.
“The Attorney General asserts that [Lisa Simone] Kelly breached her fiduciary duty to the Estate and the Charitable Trust and wrongfully diverted Estate assets. The Attorney General seeks to surcharge Kelly for amounts totaling $5,937,749.42 plus over $2.5 million in interest, which the Attorney General contends is far more than one-half of the Estate’s value during [Lisa Simone] Kelly’s administration of the Estate.”
“I’m going to leave it at that for now. Do your research if you like, but know that there is A LOT of slanders out there on my mother. There was a lot of false information put out there that is NOT TRUE. Listen. WE LIVED IT. We are still living in the aftermath of this.”

“OH WAIT, While we’re asking Kamala questions ask her why after all of this pain and suffering she put us through a Nina Simone song was sang at the inauguration to swear her in as VP?! She knew what she was doing.”
Harris had John Legend sing Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” at Kamala’s inauguration. Now, if that’s not chutzpah, I don’t know what is.
