Prince Had No Will, Sister Tyka Nelson Files Court Papers to Name an Executor

Prince‘s sister Tyka Nelson just filed paperwork at the Carver County probate court in Minneapolis because her brother had no will, TMZ reports.

The 57-year-old music legend passed away and, according to Tyka‘s papers, there is no known will and she is asking a judge to appoint a “special administrator” because no executor has been named.

“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,” Tyka said. Tyka also listed the half-siblings who are beneficiaries, and they include John, Norrine, Sharon, Alfred and Omarr.

“The decedent has heirs whose identities and addresses need to be determined,” the legal docs also read.

Ellen DeGeneres Recalls Prince's Rare Appearance on Season One of Her Show (Video)

Ellen DeGeneres chats with Prince on an episode from the first season of her show, which aired in 2003.

During her show on Tuesday (April 26), Ellen remembered the late superstar who took a chance and appeared on her show before it had major success.

“Of all the bands and artists that I’ve had on the show there was no one like Prince. He was an artist, he was an icon a genius and he was kind enough to appear on my show in the very first season, in 2003, which you have to understand is a big deal because most stars wait to see if a talk show is going to be successful. They wait to see if it’s a cool thing to do before they say yes so he did it on the first season and it meant the world to me that he did that,” Ellen explained before airing Prince‘s interview and performance of “Kiss.”

Prince's Lawyer Says He Wasn't 'Drugged Up,' Lived a Clean Lifestyle

Prince‘s lawyer L. Londell McMillan has just given an interview about the rumors that the singer was involved with drugs before his sudden death at age 57 last week.

“He said he was doing perfect,” L. Londell told the AP about his last conversation with Prince. “He said ‘OK, I’ll call you soon.’”

L. Londell also added that Prince was a vegan and lived a very clean lifestyle.

“People use medication. The question is, are you on meds in a dangerous way? Everybody who knows Prince knows he wasn’t walking around drugged up,” he continued. “That’s foolish. No one ever saw Prince and said, ‘He looks high.’ It wasn’t what he was about.”

Prince had an amazing life. He enjoyed life, he had a lot of fun…I’m shocked and overwhelmed,” L. Londell added.

About Prince‘s memorial service over the weekend, L. Londell added it was “very loving and special, solemn and very appreciative. I think he would have been proud of how we celebrated his life.”
