Judge declares Prince's 6 siblings the heirs to his estate

19 May 2017

Over a year after Prince died, a Minnesota judge has ruled that the late musician's six siblings are the legal heirs to his estate.

The six heirs - his sister Tyka Nelson and five half-siblings: Omarr Baker, Alfred Jackson, John L. Nelson, Norrine Nelson and Sharon Nelson - have always been considered the presumed heirs, after a number of claimants were denied past year. Eide said if the appellate courts sent those cases back to him, he would still fully consider them.

Attorneys for those who did appeal had said their interests would be harmed if the district court didn't wait out the appeals process before naming the heirs.

Platform Specialty Products Corp's (PAH) Buy Rating Reaffirmed at Nomura
Three analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and seven have assigned a buy rating to the company's stock. Platform Specialty Products Corporation (PAH) has an annual dividend of $0, while its annual dividend yield is 0%.

Prince's family, of course, has raised issues about the delay of distribution, saying that prolonging it will diminish the estate.

Court filings suggest his estate is worth around $200 million, maybe more depending on the value of his musical legacy and his unreleased recordings.

Prince died April 21 of a year ago at age 57 of an accidental overdose of the painkiller fentanyl.

DNA tests have ruled out several claims from people purporting to be Prince's children. The motion will be presented before Judge Eide on May 31.

The court on Friday also called on L. Londell McMillan to turn over Prince business agreements to the estate administrator.

Meanwhile, Universal Music Group and Comerica Bank, the manager of Prince's estate, are moving ahead with plans to terminate the US$31m [NZ$44.8m] recorded-music deal announced earlier this year. Andrew Stoltmann, a lawyer for the woman and girl who say they are Prince's niece and grand-niece, said Friday that he hadn't seen the new ruling but would examine it and determine whether to appeal it.
