Prince's $300 million estate may be divided between his 6 living relatives and the Jehovah's Witness church after it was determined he did not leave a Will.
The 57-year-old singer whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson died under mysterious circumstances Thursday morning at his sprawling residence and recoding studio near Minneapolis.
Prince's estate, which includes his massive music catalog, will likely go to his closest living relative, his sister Tyka Nelson. But But, according to gossip tabloid TMZ, Prince and his sister Tyka have 5 half sisters and half brothers.
If there is no Will, Minnesota inheritance law controls how the estate is divided between the closest living relatives. It's not clear if Minnesota law recognizes half siblings as "close" relatives.
An autopsy was completed on Friday and Prince was cremated the next day.
No cause of death has been determined, but there are unconfirmed reports that he was addicted to narcotics for decades.
The singer's long time attorney, L Londell McMillan disputes reports that Prince was a drug addict.
In an interview with the Associated Press, McMillan said he last spoke with the singer the Sunday before he died, after Prince's jet made an emergency landing in Illinois, and he was briefly admitted to a hospital.
"He said he was doing perfect," McMillan recalled. "He said, 'Okay, I'll call you soon.'"
Asked about reports that Prince was addicted to Percocet, a narcotic pain reliever that contains Tylenol, McMillan said Prince was "not on any drugs that would be any cause for concern".
"People use medication. The question is, are you on meds in a dangerous way?"
McMillan said the pop star was a vegan who was known for his healthy lifestyle.
"Everybody who knows Prince knows he wasn't walking around drugged up," McMillan said. "That's foolish. No one ever saw Prince and said 'He looks high'. It wasn't what he was about."
McMillan was among the handful of family and friends who attended a memorial for the singer after he was cremated.
"It was a very loving and special, solemn and very appreciative," McMillan said. "I think he would have been proud of how we celebrated his life."
