I told you two days ago that Prince had no will. Now CNN Money reports from Minneapolis that Prince’s sister has filed to open probate. She says no there is no will.
It is beyond amazing that Prince had no plan for his estate, his archives, his business. He was incredibly litigious. He sued record companies, he sued fans for downloading, uploading. And all those lawyers who came and went — none of them managed to get a will drawn up.
Prince’s memoir goes into the probate case. The deal he signed with Spiegel and Grau at Random House is now part of his Estate. Until an executor is named, and the estate is settled, there’s no book.
Ditto for everything else. Warner Music and all the other record companies will just make their payments into the Estate until it’s settled. All those crazy clickbait stories you read around the web– ignore them.
