In an interview with Us Weekly, the widow said she doesn’t want any “bad blood” with his family, mainly for Prince’s sake.

She really hopes Prince will be cared for.

Carter died without a will, so the status of who his estate goes to is currently in limbo. His twin sister, Angel, filed to take over his estate.

“I don’t want any problems or stress over Aaron’s estate,” she explained. “I just want Prince to be taken care of and want Aaron’s legacy to live on.”
