Prince’s Business Affairs Were Out Of Order Before His Death — Now, Rights To His Songs May Be Up In The Air

This would be so sad.

Prince‘s business affairs weren’t in the best of shape before his sudden death several days ago, and his song catalog may be affected.

The star wasn’t out of money — far from it, in fact, as TMZ reports the singer’s fortune is at least somewhere in the neighborhood of $150 million, if not more.

But instead of money, it’s the messy legal stuff that is, well, getting messy after Prince’s sudden and tragic passing.

According to reports, Prince had been changing up his team of legal and business advisers pretty regularly, and with that, he didn’t have a set of high-powered attorneys so typical of celebs.

Without that, he may not have the right team in place to handle his impressive music catalog and deal with estate affairs after his death.

As we’ve seen her previously this week, Prince’s sister Tyka has been handling business affairs and calling the shots since his death — and it’s gotten so confusing to the point where even Warner Brothers Music isn’t sure where exactly the rights to his songs will end up.

Between that legendary music catalog, and at least $150 million worth of cash, property, valuables, and other assets, this is going to be a big legal headache moving forward.

Let’s just hope it’s done right.
