In a set of documents filed to the Minnesota probate court and examined Tuesday by TMZ, Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson asked a judge to appoint a “special administrator” to the case, which is an entity appointed by the state in the absence of a will.

From the documents, Nelson writes:

“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.”


Nelson named all of Prince’s living siblings, as well as “heirs whose identities and addresses need to be determined” as “potential beneficiaries.” She then recommended Bremer Bank to act as the special administrator, claiming them, as TMZ explains, to be “well versed in his affairs and best suited to protect his assets.”

Prince’s net worth was reported to be around $150 million.

Y’all, go make a will. Now. Even if your assets are minimal or just bunch of books and shoes. In many states you just need to write it on your own and simply take it to a bank to have it notarized for free. You will save your loved ones, friends or family, lots of headaches.
