Judge Declines to Dismiss Lawsuit Against Heirs of Prince’s Estate

A judge has declined to dismiss a lawsuit against Prince's heirs, filed by temporary administrators of the estate, over control of a LLC stake.

The legal battle over Prince’s estate continues as a judge has declined to dismiss a lawsuit against the late singer’s heirs. L. Londell McMillan and Charles Spicer Jr., who were previously appointed as temporary special administrators of the estate, filed a lawsuit against four members of Prince’s family over control of an LLC that owned a 50 percent stake in the estate.

The lawsuit was filed against Prince’s half-sister Sharon Nelson, as well as his half-brothers Omarr Baker, Alfred Jackson, and John R. Nelson. McMillan and Spicer claimed that the four heirs had breached their fiduciary duties by taking control of the LLC and making decisions without consulting them.

The judge’s decision to not dismiss the lawsuit means that the legal battle over Prince’s estate will continue. The estate is estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and the outcome of this lawsuit could have a significant impact on how it is managed and distributed.

Prince passed away in 2016 without leaving a will, leading to a lengthy legal process to determine the rightful heirs to his estate. In 2017, a judge ruled that Prince’s six siblings were the rightful heirs, but the recent lawsuit filed by McMillan and Spicer challenges this decision.

The lawsuit also alleges that the four heirs have been withholding financial information and have not been transparent about their actions regarding the estate. McMillan and Spicer are seeking to have the four heirs removed from their roles as administrators of the estate.

The legal battle over Prince’s estate has been ongoing for years, with multiple lawsuits and disputes between the heirs and other parties involved. The latest development in this case shows that the fight for control of the estate is far from over.

As the legal proceedings continue, fans of Prince and music lovers around the world are left wondering what will become of the late singer’s legacy and his vast music catalog. The outcome of this lawsuit could have a significant impact on the future of Prince’s estate and how his music is managed and shared with the world.
