Prince, the iconic British singer who died in April 2016 at his Paisley Park studios due to the accidental overdose of the painkiller fentanyl has finally got the heirs to his estate. The singer who did not leave any will when he died and does not have any kids. The singer has some 30 albums to his credit and his estate is estimated to be worth around USD 200 Million.
Some 45 people have staked a claim to the fortune, including a prisoner in Colorado who wrongly claimed to be Prince’s son from which some 29 claims were rejected and for the others, genetic tests were ordered to be carried out. District Judge Kevin Eide said those who were denied the status of heirs must have time t appeal against the ruling.
Prince’s assets include properties and the rights to his music, including hits like Let’s Go Crazy and When Doves Cry & previously unreleased material.
Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, and five half-siblings – Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson, John Nelson, Omarr Baker and Alfred Jackson are now entitled to the estate of Prince legally but thy all must wait for another year to get their share of the millions till all the other claims are verified and settled.
