Luciano Pavarotti removed his wife's name from ownership of his R117,6million mansion in July - two months before he died.

Pavarotti, who died of pancreatic cancer this month, had jointly owned the estate with his wife of four years, Nicoletta Mantovanti.

The 71-year-old was deeply troubled by his wife's constant "scheming" over money, according to reports.

A bitter battle is set to break out between the opera star's children, ex-wife and widow. - WENN
