Well, it’s finally happened.
A man has come forward claiming to be the biological son of Prince just weeks after the artist’s passing. According to a CBS report, Carlin Q. Williams alleges that the late legend is actually his real father.
The Missouri man filed a petition on Monday to be declared the icon’s “sole surviving legal heir,” and has even requested a blood test.
The legal action comes days after the musician’s estate has been authorized to test the musician’s blood against the DNA of any potential paternity claims, so the timing of Carlin’s claim is pretty interesting.
According to the legal docs, his mother, Marsha Henson, says she and the songsmith had unprotected sex in July of 1976 in a Kansas City hotel, and that’s when her son was conceived.
We’re curious to see how the DNA test turns out.
But if Carlin and his momma are telling the truth, we’re willing to bet the star’s sister Tyka Nelson is going to be pretty pissed, since that would mean that she and the hitmaker’s other siblings would no longer be the heirs to his estate!
