Late B.B King may have been killed.

His daughters, Karen Williams and Patty King now claim the 'King of the Blues' was poisined by his closest aids.

In new documents provided by their lawyers, King's daughters allege that B.B.’s business manager LaVerne Toney and personal assistant Myron Johnson were responsible for their father’s death.

They stated that their dad didn’t look like himself when they visited just days before his passing and soon became suspicious of the legacy’s aides.

Meanwhile, B.B.’s will, last modified in 2007, appoints Toney – who worked for the legend for nearly 40 years – power of attorney despite Williams’ and King’s efforts to obtain it themselves.

“They want to do what they want to do, which is take over, I guess. But that wasn’t Mr. King’s wishes. Mr. King would be appalled.'' Toney explains

B.B. King died at 89 at his Las Vegas home on Thursday, May 21 and according to Las Vegas police, homicide detectives are currently investigating. An autopsy was performed on B.B. King Sunday, May 24 and could take up to eight weeks for test results.
