Man Comes Forward Claiming To Be Prince's Son
(AllHipHop News) A Missouri man has filed documents petitioning to be determined as late icon Prince’s biological son.
On Friday (May 6), Judge Kevin Eide, who is overseeing ruling on the Kiss star’s estate, issued an order to allow authorities to test the singer’s blood for potential DNA matches.
Judge Eide recognized there may be some claims from people insisting they are the rightful heirs to Prince’s fortune, so he gave Bremer Trust officials, who are administrating the estate, permission to have samples of Prince’s blood transferred from the Midwest Medical Examiner’s office to DNA Diagnostics Center of Fairfield, Ohio, for testing.
On Monday (May 9), Carlin Q. Williams of Kansas City, Missouri, filed documents in Prince’s home state of Minnesota requesting a DNA test as well as a petition to be determined as the legend’s “sole surviving legal heir.”
According to documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Williams’ mother, Marsha Henson, gave a statement saying she had unprotected sex with Prince in July 1976 in Kansas City and conceived her son that day.
Since Prince left no will, the hitmaker’s assets, which TMZ.com reports is valued at less than $150 million, will be split evenly between his heirs – who have been listed as Tyka Nelson, Alfred Jackson, John R. Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, and Omarr Baker.
No one addressed the official value of Prince’s estate in court, but the property he owned in his native Minnesota alone, including the Paisley Park studios in Chanhassen where he died, is worth an estimated $27 million.
