The Carver County probate judge appointed Bremer Trust as special administrator of the late musician’s estate, following an informal telephone conference Wednesday with some of his possible heirs.
Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, who attended the hearing, filed paperwork on Tuesday asking for the appointment of a special administrator, stating that she did not believe her late brother had a will and that decisions about his business interests needed to be made.
For the next six months or until a personal representative is appointed, Bremer will manage and supervise Prince’s assets and determine his heirs.
Another possible heir, Prince’s half sibling Omarr Baker, also attended Wednesday’s hearing.
