Prince, whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson, died April 21 at age 57 of opioid toxicity — without having left a will, according to his sister. That leaves it up to the courts to figure out who gets all or parts of his estimated $27 million-plus in property and untold millions more in potential licensing and rights income.So far, Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, several half-brothers and -sisters and assorted nieces and nephews through some of those half-siblings have taken steps to claim the estate.
So has a federal prison inmate in Colorado who claims he’s Prince’s son from a 1976 fling.
Carver County, Minnesota, District Judge Kevin W. Eide on Monday ordered that anyone wanting to put in a claim must do so by Friday, June 10.
The claims will be reviewed by a special administrator appointed to oversee Prince’s finances pending a resolution.
The administrator, the wealth management firm Bremer Trust, could decide that DNA testing is appropriate, according to the order.
