A Carver County District Court judge has ordered a special administrator to temporarily handle the estate of Prince, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
District Judge Kevin Eide confirmed Wednesday that Bremer Trust will administer the estate for up to six months, TMZ reports. After that period, an heir — or heirs — will be appointed.
Prince Rogers Nelson's sister, Tyka Nelson, filed an emergency motion Tuesday in Carver County District Court to appoint a special administrator to oversee her brother's estate. The documents state that Prince died without a will. Tyka Nelson listed herself and six half-siblings as potential beneficiaries.
Prince died suddenly last Thursday at 57.
Prince's estate could be worth $100 million or more, entertainment lawyers tell the Star Tribune. If no will or trust emerges, control of the estate could take years to settle, lawyers tell the Strib.
One of the major questions, of course, is what will become of the Minnesota-born pop superstar's much-speculated-about vault of unreleased music.
