This guy says he's Prince's son

Carlin Q. Williams says he's Prince's son. He's scheduled to be released from prison in 2020.

Meet Carlin Q. Williams. He's 39. He's currently incarcerated on weapons charges in a Colorado supermax prison. His rap name appears to be Prince Dracula.

But the most interesting thing about the Kansas City, Missouri, native?

The fact he claims to be Prince's biological son. Williams is seeking DNA testing to prove that Prince is his pops, according to papers made public Tuesday by Carver County District Court.

Williams' mother, Marsha Henson, says she met Prince Rogers Nelson, then 18, in the lobby of a Kansas City hotel in 1976, according to an accompanying affidavit.

She says they drank wine. She says they had unprotected sex resulting in the birth of Carlin Q. Williams. She says she hadn't had sex for six weeks prior to meeting Prince, and that she remained celibate until Williams' birth.  

Prince's debut album, For You, dropped in 1978, one year after Williams was born. 

It's believed Williams is the first person to file a paternity claim in the Prince estate, which is estimated to worth as much as $300 million. No will has been discovered since Prince died April 21 at 57.

Children are first in line to inherit the estates of their deceased parents under Minnesota law. On Friday, a judge overseeing the estate case OK'd genetic testing on Prince's blood in case it's needed to determine potential heirs. 

Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, filed paperwork with Carver County District Court last month listing herself and six half-siblings as potential heirs to Prince.

For his part, Williams writes "I Am Prince (rodger [sic] nelson) aka Prince The Singer's Son" on his ReverbNation music page. His attorney, Patrick Cousins, tells the AP that Williams has long claimed to be Prince's son.

In 2014, Williams was sentenced to 92 months in prison, according to federal court records.

The big takeaway? Who the hell knows. More than $50 million worth of fishy claims were rejected by the court handling Michael Jackson's estate case.
