Como's son and daughter fought over medical care

The children of crooner Perry Como battled over their father's medical care before he died, court records show.

Therese Thibadeau, of Jupiter, Fla., also questioned the ability of her older brother, Ronald Como, of Indiana to be the personal representative of their father's estate, according to Palm Beach County court records.

Ronald Como would not comment to the Palm Beach Post, and the newspaper said it couldn't reach his sister or brother, David Como, of San Francisco.

The 88-year-old Como, famous for such hits as "Catch a Falling Star," died May 12 from Alzheimer's. He had named Ronald Como as executor of his estate.

In July, Thibadeau wrote the court that her brother might not be fit to represent the estate because of health problems. But Thibadeau said she wouldn't oppose her brother's appointment as long as he gave her copies of all court paperwork.
