Although Thomas Kinkade left his wife two years ago, they never got divorced. Kinkade left his wife for another woman. That woman wants to write a tell all which should be pretty good. Apparently Thomas did not lead the wholesome kind of life he always portrayed and his DUI arrest was just the tip of the iceberg. The girlfriend/mistress signed a confidentiality agreement last year and now Thomas' wife is trying to get a restraining order against the girlfriend to stop her from writing the book. The issue here is that just because Kinkade has died does not mean his empire won't keep churning out stuff. He never really sold original works anyway so his death is not going to stop the money making. In fact, it will probably make a lot more now because people will think it is going to be worth something. Having some nasty tell all coming out might put a crimp into that money making.
