A Minnesota judge has finally shut down the dozens of “parentage issues”, the money grabbing, gold digging, “Prince Was My Dad” claims that have deluged the estate of the late super star by ruling that Prince’s six siblings are the heirs to his estate.

In a ruling made public Friday, Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide declared that Prince died without a will and that his full sister, Tyka Nelson, and five half-siblings are his heirs.

There are people who filed appeals even after their claims of heir ship were rejected. Eide said that if the appellate courts send those cases back to him, he’ll still fully consider them. So the door is not completely closed but I seriously doubt anybody other than his sibling have any cash coming.

Court filings suggest his estate is worth around $200 million. Federal and state estate taxes are expected to consume about half of that….YES HALF! I guess Uncle Sam is the biggest winner of all.

The Judge also said Prince’s assets won’t be distributed without a formal court order and that nothing will be distributed that might adversely affect the claims of those with pending appeals. So the frauds are holding up their purple payday.

Eide had previously said he would not rule the siblings as heirs until all those appeals had been decided.  Attorneys for those who appealed said their interests would be harmed if the district court didn’t wait out the appeals process.

But lawyers for Prince’s siblings didn’t want to wait, saying further delays would have increased costs to the estate and impede its efficient administration.

Prince Rogers Nelson died April 21st, 2016 of a suspected accidental drug overdose. I still have a very hard time believing Prince did not leave a will don’t you?
