It’s official. Prince did not have a will.
On Wednesday, a judge confirmed that the music icon did not have a last will and testament in place before he tragically passed last week.
Sources have said in the past that the 57-year-old probably didn’t draft the legal document because he allegedly struggled with serious paranoia.
And as a result, the magistrate declared that all of the singer’s assets will be distributed among all his siblings, who are his heirs according to Minnesota law.
While the artist’s sister Tyka Nelson has filed papers to be the “special administrator” of the hitmaker’s estate, the judge ruled that the late legend’s bank, Bremer Trust, will serve as the administrator, at least for now.
However, Bremer will only hold the position for six months. After that, a personal representative can claim the title. So, Tyka could still have her chance in half a year.
If the songsmith’s other relatives throw their hats in the ring, it could get complicated. And since the performer’s brother, Omarr Baker, showed up in court for the hearing, it’s possible Tyka’s going to have some competition for the spot.
