The late singer Prince’s siblings have suffered a setback in their battle with the estate over money.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a judge has denied a petition for compensation filed by Prince’s heirs, Sharon, Norrine and John Nelson. Recently, the three went to court asking for help. They claim to be currently living, “solely on their pension, social security, personal savings and loans from friends to cover the costs needed to support the Prince Estate despite the millions paid to advisors, attorneys and others approved by the Court.”
Sharon, Norrine and John accused the estate representative, Comerica Bank, of not paying a dime out to Prince’s family. They were frustrated with the estate paying $20 million out to lawyers and advisors. Prince left his estate behind to be distributed by his six siblings.
