Toby Keith’s Wife, Tricia Covel, Asks The Court To Keep Portions Of His Will Private


During his life, Toby Keith took precautions to ensure that he and his family were safe and secure. Keith’s widow, Tricia Covel, has now asked the court to keep parts of his will private in order to continue that same level of protection for the family that the country star provided in his lifetime. On February 20, only 15 days after Keith’s death, Covel filed papers asking the Oklahoma Court to name her as the administrator of his estate. In addition to Tricia, Keith’s will named their three adult children as his survivors and heirs. “The Consents signed by each heir contain confidential information regarding not only the heirs but also the business interests of Toby at the time of his death. This information, if known to the public, would likely increase the threat to the safety and security of the Personal Representative and the heirs,” Covel’s lawyers argue in their filing.
