2. She was taken to court over grandmother's will. 

According to a report by News Ghana in 2017, Life & Style Magazine obtained legal documents that revealed that John Melick, Eilish's father was taking his own daughter to court over the will. The legal papers showed that originally he was set to receive a decent portion of the fortune, but in 2015 Eilish had her grandmother file an amendment. The amendment completely removed her father from the will and left Eilish with more money. Even her brother's inheritance was reduced. 

Nancy Dow was also going to give money to her favorite charity, The Christian Community, but Eilish reportedly convinced her to remove that as well.

Eilish, who had a close relationship with her grandmother was made the sole trustee. Eilish’s father alleged that Eilish had Nancy make the changes after she suffered “a series of debilitating strokes beginning in 2012,” and was mentally incompetent.

Eilish’s lawyers told Life & Style Magazine that she had a “loving relationship” with her grandmother and claim that Nancy was completely cognizant when the changes were made and able to discuss “current events and politics.”

4. Inherited a fortune 

Nancy Dow, Eilish's grandmother passed away in 2016. She was age 79 and had suffered a series of strokes before her passing. In her will, she left money to Eilish and other family members. Eilish received the largest portion of money from the will. Jennifer Aniston who is known for having a tense relationship with her mother was not included in the will. According to Radar Online, Aniston admitted that her relationship with her mom wasn't the greatest, saying “I did not come out the model child she’d hoped for….”

According to Daily Mail, a source told People that Eilish still loved her mother despite their relationship. 

"No matter how complicated and difficult the relationship between Nancy and Jennifer may have been, it is heartbreaking for any daughter to lose her mother. Nancy fought a very long battle, with many ups and downs, and Jennifer is grateful for the happy times they shared. [Jennifer] is pulling close to her husband and family and feels so supported by their love," the source said. 

Aniston who was siding with her brother over the revision of the will expressed that she wanted no further parts of the case by signing a letter. 

While Aniston wasn't close to her mother, Melick was. Eilish posted a photo of herself and her grandmother on Instagram in July 2018, two years after her passing. Her caption read: "Happy birthday Mamom lol so when is this supposed to get easier?"
