A FURIOUS family feud is exploding over late country great Kenny Rogers, whose body is being kept on ice because his widow wants to hold a massive send-off that’s now banned by the coronavirus lockdown!
The 81-year-old Gambler star, father of five kids with four of his five wives, passed away on March 20 — and wife Wanda Rogers is determined to give him a glitzy farewell with a star-studded party and memorial service worthy of a showbiz legend.
Others in the family, though, think the delay in burying Kenny is undignified, especially since it’s unclear how long the coronavirus crisis will go on.
Mom of his 15-year-old twin sons, Justin and Jordan, Wanda has also yet to pick a plot in the family mausoleum, meaning his body is in even more of a mortuary limbo.
Wanda’s hope is to have all the family plus Nashville superstars Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire — and dozens more country greats — for a glittering country celebration, says a family source.
