(Video) Prince’s Family Shows Up For First Probate Hearing

Today, the first probate hearing was held for Prince’s estate. Most of his siblings showed up, and they signed off on Bremer Trust bank being named special administrator of the estate. Prince’s half brother, John R. Nelson, was not in court, and his attorney said he did not sign the consent form…however, the judge approved the petition to put the bank in charge. John was the only living sibling not present. Tyka – Prince’s only full sibling – reportedly feels she’s entitled to more than 1/6 of the estate, though under Minnesota law, all 6 siblings share equally. It looks like this can get messy.


Judge Confirms Prince Had No Will

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?
