Prince's Sister, Tyka Nelson, Files Documents Claiming Prince Had No Will


As we told you yesterday, it appears as though Prince really did NOT leave a will — according to new legal documents filed by his sister, Tyka Nelson.

via TMZ:

TMZ has obtained documents filed in Minnesota, asking that she be appointed to probate Prince’s estate.   She’s asking the judge to appoint her as a “special administrator.”  Under Minnesota law, a special administrator is someone who is appointed when there is no executor named in a will.

Tyka says in her docs, “I do not know of the existence of a will and have no reason to believe that the decedent executed testamentary documents in any form.”

If Prince did indeed die without a will, the estate is divided equally among his siblings.

Tyka lists the people who are potential beneficiaries … all of whom are half brothers and sisters. They are John, Norrine, Sharon, Alfred and Omar.  They are all living siblings of Prince.  She also says she’s an heir.

It’s interesting … Tyka names Lorna as a deceased half sister who left no kids.  Under Minnesota law Lorna’s out of the game when it comes to getting assets.  But Tyka never even mentions Duane, reportedly Prince’s half-brother, who is also deceased.

Tyka then names Bremer Trust, National Association, which she wants to serve as the official administrator of Prince’s estate.  Tyka says she wants Bremer Bank because they have provided financial services to Prince for years, and they are well versed in his affairs and best suited to protect his assets.

Let’s just hope that Prince’s family doesn’t spend the next few years fighting over his estate.
