Representatives of Aretha Franklin's estate and her family have asked a judge to tell them what to do with three handwritten wills found hidden at her home, one of which involves a big surprise.

Wills were discovered on May 3 in Detroit's Franklin House, two in a locked cupboard whose key was hard to find and one in a spiral notebook stuffed with cushions on a couch, according to documents filed Monday in Oakland County Court, Michigan.

When Franklin died in August, the lawyers said she had no wills.
