Prince’s sister is in some hot water over money she allegedly owes several attornies, who represented her, when the singer suddenly died of a drug overdose.
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the law firm Of Cozen O’Connor, claims they are owed over $100,000 in legal fees for representing Prince’s sister Tyka, and dealing with the ‘Purple Rain’ singer’s estate.
The law firms says it “intends to hold alien upon Tyka Nelson’s interest in the Estate of Prince Rogers Nelson, including any right to receive payments, property, proceeds, money or value of any kind, for agreed compensation for such services as were rendered by CozenO’Connor respecting Tyka Nelson’s interest in the Estate.”
“As of this date, the unpaid legal services and costs total $118,280.31 exclusive of any costs of collection. This amount does not include any fees and costs that Cozen O’Connor was awarded by the Court for work that benefitted the Estate”, the documents state.
As we reported, Prince’s sister has been ordered to pay up on $850,000 owed to lawyers who worked on her behalf on matters related to the estate for her late brother.
A Minnesota judge presiding over Prince’s estate case found Tyka Nelson owed three separate law firms cash for their work.
