Judge Determines Prince Heirs In Estate Hearing

In an order filed yesterday (May 18), Carver County District Court Judge Kevin Eide officially determined the heirs for the Prince estate, 13 months after the icon's sudden death on April 21, 2016.

According to the filing, Prince's six siblings -- his sister, Tyka Nelson; two half-sisters, Sharon Nelson and Norrine Nelson; and three half-brothers, Omarr Baker, John R. Nelson and Alfred Jackson -- are the lawful heirs to the estate, reportedly valued around $200 million.

The determination means that other potential heirs will have one year to come forward to have their claims considered by the court.


The filing also affirms that former estate special advisor L. Londell McMillan will serve as the business advisor to three of those heirs: John R. Nelson, Sharon Nelson and Norrine Nelson. McMillan will advise those clients on entertainment industry agreements, except for amendments or renegotiations of such agreements the estate entered prior to Jan. 31, 2017. 

Additionally, McMillan's motion to intervene in hearings involving the estate's deal with Universal Music Group has been denied, while a motion to quash a subpoena on McMillan was granted.
