Minnesota judge officially confirms heirs to Prince's $200M estate

LOS ANGELES - A Minnesota judge on Thursday officially declared the heirs to Prince's estate, the value of which has been estimated at more than $200 million.

The six heirs -- his sister Tyka Nelson and five half-siblings: Omarr Baker, Alfred Jackson, John L. Nelson, Norrine Nelson and Sharon Nelson -- have long been considered the presumed heirs, after a number of claimants were denied last year. The ruling begins a one-year process in which other would-be heirs can make their case to the judge.

The filing also confirms that L. Londell McMillan, one of two former special music-industry advisers to the estate, will be the business adviser to three of the heirs: John, Norrine and Sharon Nelson. Tyka Nelson and Omarr Baker have been represented by attorney and CNN commentator Van Jones. A motion to quash a subpoena ordering McMillan to appear in relation to his organization of a troubled Prince tribute concert in Minneapolis last fall was granted.

While the rulings lay to rest certain contested matters around Prince's estate, many others remain. Other documents released Friday show that Universal Music Group and Comerica Bank, the manager of Prince's estate, are moving ahead with plans to terminate the $31 million recorded-music deal announced earlier this year.
