The Prince estate has been hit with a creditor’s claim by a company who says they were hired to appraise the singer’s famous recording studio but were allegedly never paid.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the Shenehon Company claims Prince’s estate owes them $45,433.65 for work they did concerning Paisley Park.
The company claims they “provided appraisal services regarding a recording studio in Chanhassen, MN at Prince’s famed mansion for estate tax preparation and filing for the Estate. The Estate has failed to pay for said services.”
They claim to have performed over 200 hours of work on the project in 2017, about a year after the singer’s death.
The company is demanding the court order the estate to pay them the full $45k, plus interest, for their work.
The estate made news last week when they took issue with President Donald Trump playing the classic Prince song, “Purple Rain,” at his rallies.
In a statement, the estate said, “The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or The White House to use Prince’s songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately.”
