Brian Wilson’s Family Pursues Conservatorship Following Wife’s Death

Brian Wilson’s family is seeking the best possible care for the 81-year-old Beach Boys legend.

According to court documents obtained by ET on Friday, Wilson’s family is seeking a conservatorship for the singer, who is suffering from a “major neurocognitive disorder (such as dementia)” — and naming “longtime Wilson family representatives” LeeAnn Hard and Jean Sievers as co-conservators.

The legal action — which came “after careful consideration and consultation among Brian, his seven children, Gloria Ramos [reportedly Wilson’s housekeeper] and Brian’s doctors (and consistent with family processes put in place by Brian and Melinda)” — is in part because Wilson’s wife, Melinda, died on Jan. 30. According to the docs, she was his primary caregiver at home and no successive caretaker was named in his Advanced Health Care Directive.

“This decision was made to ensure that there will be no extreme changes to the household and Brian and the children living at home will be taken care of and remain in the home where they are cared for by Gloria Ramos and the wonderful team at the house who have been in place for many years helping take care of the family,” the Wilson family said in a statement to ET. “Brian will be able to enjoy all of his family and friends and continue to work on current projects as well as participate in any activities he chooses.”

Wilson had two children with his first wife, Marilyn, singers Carnie and Wendy Wilson. After he and Melinda marred in 1995, they adopted five children.

Wilson mourned Melinda’s death in an Instagram statement.

“My heart is broken. Melinda, my beloved wife of 28 years, passed away this morning,” he wrote. “Our five children and I are just in tears. We are lost. Melinda was more than my wife. She was my savior.”
