Judge Confirms Prince Had No Will

ifwt_Prince

A judge has officially confirmed what Prince’s sister Tyka thought – he did not have a will. The bank he used for many years (which is the one Tyka named in her filed documents to start probate proceedings,) has been appointed to manage his assets, as well as become the administrator of Prince’s estate for the next 6 months. After the 6 month process, a personal representative can be appointed. It has a possibility of getting messy, as all 6 of Prince’s siblings (1 full, 5 half) are entitled to their equal share of his $150 million fortune. One would assume it would go to Tyka, who is Prince’s only full sibling, but you can’t be sure. As it was today, Prince’s half brother, Omarr Baker, appeared at the hearing.


Prince’s Sister Officially Files Documents Because There Was No Will

ifwt_Prince

There has been speculation regarding whether Prince left a will or not, and his sister has just confirmed that he has not. Tyga has officially filed legal documents to open a probate case, asking the judge to appoint a “special administrator” for his estate, since there is no executor named in a will. Under Minnesota law, assets of someone without a will are to be divided equally amongst their next of kin, and full and half siblings are treated the same. This would mean that there are 6 people set to inherit Prince’s fortune – Tyka, his only full sibling, and his 5 half-siblings John, Norrine, Sharon, Alfred and Omarr. And could it be possible that Prince was a father?

Former Toronto mayor Rob Ford has passed away at the age of 46, after a 2-year battle with cancer. In recent years, Ford became more infamous for being caught on camera smoking crack multiple while in office, than for his actual job title. He eventually went to rehab to seek help for his “problem with alcohol” for two months, then returned to office until the end of his term in 2014. That same year, Ford was diagnosed with pleomorphic liposarcoma, after a tumor was found in his abdomen. He underwent surgeries and multiple rounds of chemotherapy, but today, he has succumbed to the horrible disease. Ford is survived by his wife and 2 children. RIP.
