One of Prince’s sisters, Tyka Nelson, has filed legal documents stating that she doesn’t believe that the legendary singer had a will. If this is true, his massive $300 million estate will be divided evenly among his six siblings!
Tyka Nelson firmly believes that her famous brother, Prince, did not create a will before he tragically died at the age of 57 on April 21. Tyka filed legal documents in Minnesota on April 26, according to TMZ, asking the court to assign a “special administrator” to help deal with her late brother’s $300 million estate.

“I do not know of the existence of a will and have no reason to believe that the decedent executed testamentary documents in any form,” Tyka wrote in the probate documents she filed in in Carver County probate court in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which asks the judge to appoint the special administrator, according to TMZ. Since there is no will to execute, under Minnesota law, the administrator will help the late singer’s heirs deal with dividing his unfathomable fortune.
Tyka is positive there is no will, so that means Prince’s $300 million will be divided equally among his siblings and half-siblings: Tyka, John, Norrine, Sharon, Alfred and Omarr. Prince has two deceased half-siblings whose estates will not receive any money: Lorna and Duane.
Interestingly, there may be money given to people other than Prince’s siblings, if the special administrator can decode this sentence in Tyka’s document: “The decedent has heirs whose identities and addresses need to be determined.” Tyka names Bremer Trust, National Association as who she wants to manage Prince’s estate, according to TMZ. The bank managed Prince’s finances for years, and she trusts them to do the same after his shocking death.
