Singer Chloe Bailey put out a rendition of Nina Simone’s famous song “Feeling Good” for Juneteenth.

But, there was a surprising reaction from Simone’s granddaughter in the back and forth about her grandmother on Twitter. Someone asked about who was behind the Simone Twitter account.

That’s when the granddaughter went off on former California state Attorney General Kamala Harris, accusing her of seizing Simone’s estate from her family and “giving it to white people.”

Nina’s granddaughter here. My family doesn’t run her estate anymore. It was taken away from us & given to white people. Our family name was DRAGGED in the media. We get NO royalties, nothing. Wanna hold someone accountable?Ask Kamala Harris why she came for my family #NinaSimone https://t.co/mMXOz7iLxn

She accused Harris of separating the family from their heritage and their family rights to Simone’s estate.

As I said before, Ask her why she separated my family. Ask her why my grandmothers estate is in SHAMBLES now. Ask her why we as her family no longer own the rights to anything. Ask her why she bullied my mother in court and my mom almost killed herself from the depression.

After all that, then Harris had a famous Nina Simone song as part of her swearing-in festivities, her granddaughter ranted, which Kelly felt was deliberate.

OH WAIT, While we’re asking Kamala questions ask her why after all of this pain and suffering she put us through a Nina Simone song was sang at the inauguration to swear her in as VP?! She knew what she was doing.
