Mourners gathered outside of Prince's Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

If Prince left behind a will when he died last week at 57, his sister Tyka Nelson claims to be unaware of it.

Nelson filed an emergency motion Tuesday with the Carver County District Court requesting that a judge appoint a special administrator to her late brother's estate. 

“I do not know of the existence of a will and have no reason to believe that the decedent executed testamentary documents in any form," the documents read. 

The petition requests that Bremer Bank, which "has provided financial services to [Prince] for a number of years and has knowledge of his personal financial and business financial affairs," be appointed administrator to the estate of Prince Rogers Nelson.

Tyka Nelson, Prince's only surviving full-blooded heir, lists herself, plus half-siblings John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Alfred Jackson, and Omar Baker as potential beneficiaries. Half-sister Lorna Nelson, who died before Prince, is also listed.

On Tuesday, the Associated Press explored what we do know about Prince's estate. The major question, of course, is what will become of the Minnesota-born pop superstar's much-speculated-about vault of unreleased music

“Will there be a business built up around Prince 60 years from now like James Dean?" Mark Roesler, an executive responsible for overseeing the estates of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, asked the AP. "The answer is unequivocally yes."
