Judge authorizes DNA testing of Prince's blood for estate case

The judge overseeing the Prince estate case has authorized genetic testing on Prince's blood in case anyone comes forward claiming they are related to the late singer.

On Friday, Carver County District Court Judge Kevin Eide granted a request made by the special administrator overseeing the estate, Bremer Trust, to hire the DNA Diagnostics Center to analyze Prince's blood.

Earlier this week, the judge also set a deadline for filing claims to the late singer's estate. Those who wish to have a piece of the estate must now file their claims by Sept. 6.

The death of Prince

Prince Rogers Nelson, 57, died Thursday, April 21 at his home at Paisley Park. He was last seen alive at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20. He did not respond to calls Thursday morning, which prompted his friends and staff to call in a welfare check around 9:30 a.m. on April 21. Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park, according to the Carver County sheriff's office. Deputies attempted CPR but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Bremer Trust to manage estate

Prince's six siblings and 10 attorneys gathered on Monday morning for a 12-minute hearing at the Carver County courthouse to confirm Bremer Trust will remain his estate's special administrator. The hearing was quick, but the process of dividing the estate should take years.

Prince had recently signed a big deal with the music streaming service Tidal and reached a settlement with Warner Brothers that gave him ownership of his back catalogue. Among the treasures inside Paisley Park is the so-called vault in the basement, where Prince reportedly kept the master recordings to hundreds of unpublished songs and at least two complete albums.
