“God-daughter of Soul” sues Brown for inheritance

28 12 2006

ATLANTA, GA. They met at a truck stop in Decatur, AL. in the fall of 1972. He was the un-disputed “Godfather of Soul” with more than a dozen top-ten hits under his belt. She was a server at the local Waffle House, raising three children inherited from four ex-husbands. But when they first met, Irma Dickerson claims that James Brown assured her, in no uncertain terms, that he would “pass on his Soul to her–and her alone–after his death.”

When Brown passed away several days ago, Irma immediately drove to Atlanta to arrange for her inheritance. “It was like winning the lottery,” she said, “and I told his lawyer that I wanted that Soul all at once–not in weekly installments.”
