*Prince’s six siblings and their respective lawyers are reportedly locked in battle over competing plans for a TV special to honor their late brother.
According to TMZ, the move would allow the siblings to earn money quickly, while the bank running Prince’s estate figures out who gets what in the absence of a will.
Three or four of the siblings and their lawyers have put together a TV package, with major music producers and famous artists who will perform Prince songs for a two-hour TV special set to air in August, TMZ reports. Their plan is to include all six of the siblings as co-producers, so they all would share in the profit.
But according to TMZ, Tyka is not on board with the plan. She wants to produce her own TV special.
Also, Tyka’s siblings are reportedly upset that she is living rent free in a house Prince owned … a house on which the bank is still paying the mortgage and home-related expenses. The siblings feel they too should get comparable support, but they’re getting nothing, thus their idea for the TV special.
According to the website, a source connected with the negotiations says the lawyers met last week and “it’s gotten really nasty. No one can agree on anything.”
