So 29 people claiming to be Prince's heirs walk into a courtroom ...



That was (more or less) the scene Friday in Chaska, Minnesota, where Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide denied the claims of 29 individuals purporting to be family members of Prince, according to court records. 

Eide ordered genetic testing on part of the group -- sister Tyka Nelson and three half-siblings -- that initially filed an inheritance claim, plus an alleged niece and grandniece, Billboard reports. Two half-brothers were not ordered to undergo testing, though they remain among the eight potential heirs. 

The estate of the late Prince Rogers Nelson is estimated to worth $100 million to $300 million. There is no known will.

Prince died April 21 of a drug overdose at his Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen. The messy, "uncharted" settling of his estate chugs along at the Carver County Courthouse.
