With the absence of Prince’s will relative to his properties and assets, the battle between his siblings has reportedly become uglier.
Based on the gathered details by Radar Online, it was claimed that the family of the rock icon, who was found unconscious inside the elevator of his home and studio at Paisley Park, Chanhassen, Minnesota on April 21, is currently in feud over his $300 million reported estate.
Accordingly, the indifference between his siblings “is getting serious,” especially after Tyka Nelson banned their half-brother Alfred Jackson from his memorial service on Thursday.
In the meantime, it was pointed out that one probable reason was Nelson’s inability to manage his estate and his half-brother’s “bold move” to claim whatever it is due him from Prince’s estate.
The report noted that Jackson even hired a lawyer, Frank K. Wheaton, from Indianapolis to represent him in the hearing relative to his half-brother’s assets.
Meanwhile, Nelson, who was appointed by a judge to manage her brother’s properties, appeared to be incapable of doing such task.
“There’s complete and utter chaos because Tyka isn’t well versed in managing anything like this,” a source reportedly told the entertainment site. “But the other half siblings are even less equipped to deal with it!”
Apart from Jackson, Prince also has other half-siblings – Corrine, John, Sharon, and Omar.
On the other hand, USA Today reported that the family of the “Purple Rain” singer, who died at the age of 57, were preparing for the probate hearing on Monday, May 2, in Carver County (Minnesota) District Court at 8:30 a.m. CT/9:30 a.m. ET.
The report stated that the hearing was set after Nelson requested on Tuesday the appointment of a special administrator who will be tasked to “to secure and preserve the estate” of Prince (born Prince Rogers nelson) until the court appoints an executor or a “personal representative.”
