Prince was a meticulous planner, a thoughtful businessman and well-versed in legal matters (music-related ones, anyway), but it’s still unclear if he had a will. Spokesmen for the star declined to comment on plans for his estate.
But if he did die without a will, Minnesota law states that his estate would go to his sister and his half-siblings, according to estate planner Danielle Mayoras, author of “Trial and Heirs,” a book about highly publicized battles over celebrities’ fortunes.
Without a will, control of Prince’s brand, including his record label and thousands of unreleased songs, would likely be transferred to his siblings, said Mayoras, who is not involved with Prince’s estate.
