*Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson has reportedly filed documents in Minnesota to open a probate case, claiming she sees no evidence that her brother left a will, according to TMZ.
In the probate documents, Tyka asks the judge to appoint a “special administrator.” Under Minnesota law, a special administrator is appointed when there is no executor named in a will.
Tyka says in her docs, “I do not know of the existence of a will and have no reason to believe that the decedent executed testamentary documents in any form.”
If Prince did indeed die without a will, the estate is divided equally among his siblings. In addition to herself, Tyka lists as beneficiaries all of her living half brothers and sisters: John, Norrine, Sharon, Alfred and Omarr.
It’s interesting … Tyka names Lorna as a deceased half sister who left no kids. Under Minnesota law Lorna’s out of the game when it comes to getting assets. But Tyka never even mentions Duane, reportedly Prince’s half brother, who is also deceased.
There’s also a line in the docs in which Tyka says, “The decedent has heirs whose identities and addresses need to be determined.”
Tyka then names Bremer Trust, National Association, which she wants to serve as the official administrator of Prince’s estate. Tyka says she wants Bremer Bank because they have provided financial services to Prince for years, and they are well versed in his affairs and best suited to protect his assets.
