A man, born in Minnesota in the 1980s, claims he is a child of Prince. This man, who remains unnamed, claims that he was born as a result of a “fling”. But, whether that “fling” turns into a $300-plus million dollar inheritance will be determined by DNA tests. Heir Hunters International, a Los Angeles based company, is helping this man pursue his claim.

Under Minnesota law, if this man is truly Prince’s child, then he (and any other child(ren)) will be the sole inheritor of Prince’s estate. Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, who has filed papers to be the administrator of Prince’s estate, and Prince’s half-siblings, Omarr Baker, Alfred Nelson, John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, and Sharon Nelson, and Prince’s grandniece, Victoria Nelson (granddaughter of Prince’s predeceased half-brother, Duane Nelson), will inherit nothing.

So, the interesting question is whether or not this unnamed love child is, in fact, Prince’s son. DNA tests have been ordered and, I would imagine, everyone in that family is awaiting the results.
