Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersFootballNFL

Aaron Hernandez's prison suicide has unraveled a mess of legal confusion.

As we reported, a Massachusetts judge granted the request to erase the former NFL star's murder conviction that was still pending appeal, which means he technically died an innocent man.

Officials say the court had "no choice" but to honor the abatement doctrine on Tuesday — you know, innocent until proven guilty (or dead, apparently) — in the former athlete's appeal for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

This new development blitzed the New England Patriots with a potential problem, as the team might now be on the hook to pay out the remainder of Aaron's $6 million salary to his estate.

The former athlete's attorney, Jose Baez, told TMZ his legal team is in talks with Hernandez's former agents to see how the abatement will affect his contract.

Baez says Hernandez's family is still grieving over his tragic suicide and are not rushing to take any specific action.

If the team were ordered to pay out the remaining sum, it would go to his beneficiary and fiancée Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, who Aaron declared was "rich" in his suicide note to her.

Prosecutors have suggested that the ex-pro planned his suicide

She's not just a singer, she's also a family woman during a tough time.

The Canadian singer now controls two estates — a $45 million Florida home, and a $25 million Quebec castle — both of which are currently up for sale.

Once those are sold, according to reports, $9 million of the money will go into a trust that is apparently for the couple's three children.

The family held other properties, too, but Celine will retain ownership of those rather than sell them for the estate.

Rene left a will, according to legal docs, and in it he was

A New Woman Is Claiming To Be Prince's Half Sister… And Wants A Chunk Of His Fortune!

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.PrinceFamilyCrazzzzy

Get the details here.

One woman claims she was related to Prince, even though she hasn't been listed as one of his heirs.

Darcell Gresham Johnston has filed legal documents alleging that she's the musician's half sister, even asking for a piece of the superstar's estate.

Since the late legend didn't leave a will before his tragic passing, Minnesota state law declares that his vast fortune will be split between his surviving heirs — AKA his only full sibling and five half siblings.

However, Miz Johnston isn't one of these six siblings, meaning no one knew she was supposedly related to the rocker.

But sources are saying that this new woman is actually the icon's long-lost half sister, and that she and the artist have different fathers but share the same mother.

In fact, insiders allege that family members didn't even know Darcell existed until a few days ago.

As the administrator of the singer's estate, Bremer Trust will look into the claim, but the court will have the final say on its legitimacy.

Do U believe her, Perezcious readers? Or do you think she's just looking for some quick cash? Let us know in the comments!

Prince's Sister Could Inherit His Entire Estate — Worth Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars — If The Singer Didn't Leave A Will

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad SadFamily

Find out how much she could receive.

Prince's sister could end up with a ton of money after his untimely passing.

According to Minnesota state law, Tyka Nelson would probably inherit everything if the late legend didn't leave behind a will.

Since the singer didn't have a wife or any living children, and both his parents had passed away, that means the 55-year-old is his closest living relative, and could end up with his entire estate.
