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.
According to reports, the icon’s net worth is about $300 million, but considering how well his music is selling in the wake of his tragic death, Tyka could end up with a lot more than that.
The artist’s first manager, Owen Husney, claims all his music is valued at about $500 million.
Not to mention, the powerful performer’s estate supposedly doesn’t include the money he got for agreeing to stream his whole catalogue on Tidal.
Tyka has reportedly had a rocky relationship with her brother over the years.
In 1993, she told the National Enquirer that she “sold [her] body” to provide for her children, and even admitted to pawning the car her sibling had gifted her, in order to buy drugs.
Fifteen years later, she opened up to CityPages about her addiction issues.
