It's crazy to think that someone as successful as Prince, never set up a will!
However, it's since been reported that to those who knew the Purple Rain singer that fact is not so insane. Hmm, go on!

On Wednesday, it was revealed through TMZ that The Artist was known for keeping his finances and his business affairs a complete mess. Apparently, for the last five years it was nearly impossible to get the music icon to sign ANY legal documents.
Sources dished that Prince's past bad experiences with industry executives, who "screwed" him over by forcing him to sign deals at the start of his career, made him extremely paranoid about putting his "John Hancock" down on anything.
In fact, it's said that the Raspberry Beret artist jumped from lawyer to lawyer almost annually due to this concern. We wonder what "longtime lawyer" L. Londell McMillan would have to say about THIS bit of gossip!
Regardless, one legal expert even explained that when he worked with the A-lister he never got his hands on Prince's business files because the musician revealed:
"I don't know, they're out there somewhere."
Oh man. Not to mention, Prince's most trusted confidants were "beautiful, 20-something women, all models with no experience in anything." No wonder his life was a mess!
It'll be inneresting to see what happens now that Prince's sister Tyka has filed legal documents to become the special administrator of his estate after she claimed there is no evidence of a will.
What do YOU think will happen to all of Prince's stuff?
