Singer Prince's Family Members Demand $20,000 A Month In Estate Battle

By Ryan Naumann

Prince’s siblings are back in court demanding they see a cut from the late singer’s estate.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Sharon, Norrine and John Nelson are back in court pleading for financial help.

The heirs recently asked the court to have the estate representative, Comerica Bank, to pay them something. They claim to have never seen a dime since Prince’s death. Comerica responded asking the court to deny the petition. They claim to still be working out issues with the IRS which needs to be completed before paying Prince’s family members.

In newly filed documents, Sharon, Norrine, and John say Comerica is full of it and they believe they should be paid $20,000 a month. They say, “Comerica, on behalf of the Estate, has simply used the Heirs efforts and desire to be helpful and informed as gratuitous labor, taking advantage of the Heirs time, advice, services and work provided without wages or compensation, unlike all others who have been excessively paid millions of dollars for their time.”

Further, ‘SNJ are all elderly, in their late seventies (except Sharon Nelson who is now eighty years of age), and have worked for years advising the Estate and seeking to ensure accountability on Comerica, without compensation for those services.”

They say they are, “prepared to accept the minimal amount of $20,000 per month for each Heir for their services or such amount approved by the Court.” Prince’s family says Comerica has approved the payment of over $20 million dollars in legal fees to be paid out before the family. A judge has yet to rule.


As The Blast first reported, Prince’s siblings, Sharon, Norrine and John Nelson, recently filed a petition for compensation in the estate.

The three accuse the estate of not paying out a dime to them despite millions being spent on lawyers and advisors. Prince left his estate behind to be distributed by his six siblings.

Sharon, Norrine and John accuse Comerica Bank of mismanaging the estate and leaving them out of key issues. Comerica denies the allegations they have done anything wrong.

Prince’s siblings originally asked the court to approve, “payment for services and efforts provided to the Estate.” They claim to have provided the estate countless hours of help on matters without being paid.
