An appraiser hired by the estate determined that Prince’s musical instruments are worth an estimated $2,858,875 and photographs he had could sell for $40,165. The other personal items he owned could be worth around $900,000.

The estate paid out several million dollars in legal and administration fees during the period and dropped over $2 million on federal and state taxes.

Prince’s family and heirs did not receive a dime during the time period. The estate did spend close to $100,000 on public relations, $109,866 on storage fees, $272k on an appraiser and over $200k on insurance costs.

The documents redacted the amount Prince’s costumes and memorabilia were estimated to be worth.

Good luck trying to find someone his size who can pull those outfits off.
