More than a year after the sudden death of music superstar Prince, a Minnesota judge has named six heirs to the purple one's estate. Prince died from an accidental drug overdose last April, leaving no will, and a legacy estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars. Friday's ruling now designates Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, and five half siblings as his official heirs.
With a fortune estimated to be worth as much as $300 million, the division of Prince's assets including rights to his massive music catalog have been held up in courts for months. But the case may not be finally settled. Other potential heirs have to one year to prove they have rights to the estate.
The judge saying, no assets will be distributed until those claims can be further reviewed.
