prince

A man who says his mother "crossed paths" with Prince Rogers Nelson in the 1980s believes he may be the late pop icon's son.

The unidentified man who lives in the midwest contacted a Los Angeles-based genealogical search firm to ask about the procedure for obtaining DNA, John Hilbert, a partner in Heir Hunters International, told the Daily News.

The man bears a resemblance to Prince and says his mother met the rock star on multiple occasions around the time he was conceived, Hilbert said.

"Prince and his mother crossed paths several times," Hilbert said Tuesday, according to the NY Daily News.

"He contacted us seeking how one would prove he was Prince's son. He asked that his privacy be maintained. He has his own family and doesn't want to be embarrassed. He won't show up on the courthouse steps."

The 57-year-old singer was found dead on April 21 in an elevator inside the recording studio on his sprawling Paisley Park property in Minnesota.

He was cremated the day after his body was released to the family by the coroner's office. He did not leave a Will according to his closest living relative, his sister Tyka Nelson.

6 other half-siblings are staking their claims on Prince's $800 million estate.

    Here I was wondering if I could be a long lost cousin. Why didn't I just think of this?!?!???

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    after the man is dead huh? okay.

  • Taylordanes

    Right so you wanna wait until he passes FOH!

  • mela.reign77

    And here we go.... smh.. Let me see him, his edges, his hair. I can tell if he's Prince's son or not..

    so was he still a " DADDY's MAYBE" 3 weeks ago, a year ago, hell 15 yes ago when Prince was living, I CANNOT with humans I swear I cant and the Dumbness they do,

    This is what happens when you don't leave a will.
    I read somewhere else that there's a guy claiming to be Prince's long lost half brother.

    Well at least Prince has a whole sibling which will make the DNA tests easier since they cremated his body.

  • Fendi

    This man hasn't revealed his identity. He spoke through this company because he lived a private life his entire life, much like Prince. From what the owners of the company stated yesterday, Prince was aware of the man. Some celebrities have secret children. I think it's sad that, after 30+ years, this man still doesn't know who his father is. I hope he gets a resolution so he can rule out whether or not Prince is his father.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If Prince were aware of him as you say then Prince would have left him something in writing or make a will just for him.

    Or paid him hush money so maybe this man has receipts.

  • Taylordanes

    If anyone cares Eddie Murphys beard finally had the baby!

  • Vonn

    "They crossed paths several times", but did they have the sex? I guess crossing paths Is Midwestern speak for having the sex.

  • Shana

    poor baby....

  • Shana

    lol this the story MTO been posting about for years! LOL!!!

  • Victorious82

    I think that sister did sumn shady with the will

  • Fendi

    He would likely have paid the man's mother, not the man.

    That would be such an awesome secret to keep. I'm really kinda hoping he IS Prince's son. That would be dope to know he had a son who is alive and well and is likely his ONLY surviving child.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Unless Prince completely disinherited her that doesn't make sense because she has to share Prince's money with every one of her half-siblings and who else comes out of the woodwork.

  • SummerBaby

    A lot of celebs back in the day had secret children.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Which would mean game over for all of his siblings including his whole sister Tyka.

    Question: Have you ever heard of singer Miki Howard's son, B. Howard? He is a songwriter and recording artist. I saw a video of his and he gave me MJ for days. The rumor is that MJ was his father. I don't believe MJ was his father, but rather Joe. I have no doubt Joe has other children beyond the children the public is familiar with, not that I wouldn't be surprised if MJ had a biological child or 2 somewhere. It's like the Princess Diaries.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If the man is in his 30's I am sure that Prince had to forward him a couple of payments as an adult for him to keep his mouth shut.

    Do you know how much money that guy could have gotten for an interview?

    A book deal and nowadays a reality show?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Shouts out to Janet

  • Fendi

    Exactly. Maybe that's why I'm hoping this man is his son.

    I'm not curious as to why Prince died, but I am curious to know why he never left a will/living trust. It leads me to believe he is hiding something else - something we may not ever know about.

  • Fendi

    Everyone doesn't want that. We don't know if he and Prince had a rapport, or if there were provisions made for him.

  • Vonn

    You gone be like dis here?

  • charallday

    2 years ago I was on my Twitter when I ca me across a guy in Prince entourage. He doesn't say he's prince son but he had some videos out on youtube. If you go to one, they are swearing its him. He toured with him about the same time lil Mo got told off on IG by The Purple One himself. They say Prince knows and the boy didn't want help and wanted to make it on his own. Judging by the article, it's not the same guy. Some ppl say why now? If there is as possibility he is his son, May be he wanted it that way. After all, Prince signed up for that life, nobody else. BUT until DNA says he's not, we'll have to wait and see. I hate this is even happening

  • Dakota H

    Also a woman named Darcell Johnston is claiming to be his long lost half sister claiming that her and Prince share the same mother Mattie Shaw but a different father. When folks die and money is at stake you find out you got all kind of long lost kin folks.

  • Dakota H

    I thought it was proven that MJ wasn't the father but I do know that Joe does have an outside the daughter that the Jackson clan know about and claim her

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Especially when you don't leave a will and especially when the law says that half-siblings get the same share as full siblings as long as the deceased doesn't have any living biological children.
    I knew this would be a bonanza for lawyers when I read there was no will.
    *sigh*

  • ?Sooo…Pretty?

    Right!? Like did they fawk! I hope his moms was bad back in the day. Cause Prince had a type. He only fawked wit bad bitches! #RIP Vanity!

  • KennyHollywood

    Prince is my Father too! I will settle for $10 million and forgo the DNA test!

  • Jayne

    I pray that young man is proven to be Prince's son. He will change the game completely, so Tyka and the hAlf siblings get absolutely nothing. God, let it be so true so his grand kids get to live in luxury and make up for not being in his life. I saw a photo of a young man next to Prince's photo and they look alike. The eyes, the mouth and same complexion.

    I saw it on http://www.askkissy.com under the heading of "30 year-old Minnesota man says he is Prince's love child" or something like that. I was blown away.

    Boy oh boy....shades of Michael Jackson again? Get out the popcorn.

    He could be a psycho.

    Not necessarily so. Check out the website and see what I'm trying to say.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    He hopes he at least get to sell one or two stories to one of the rags and make a few coins, and possibly get on a reality tv show...Prince is somewhere so amused at the disturbance and the reveal of how greedy and hateful people are, first leaving no will, then his siblings in the court of public opinion, and now all the would-be grifters coming forward...

  • FranziaRed

    Well that's one way to think about it but who got the ashes? Do Blue got the ashes??? No joke he is not dead dead to me I just caint do iiittttt!!!

    Thing is he looks like my boo after some of those surgeries not the off the wall boo. I don't put nothing past Joseph.

  • Fendi

    JMO, but one of the best things you can keep in life is a good secret. I've had folks confide in me about their fair share. I will keep that info with me for the remainder of my days. Respect is earned. There's nothing tackier than seeing thirsty chicks who are play toys for athletes, actors and recording artists taking pics of the guys while they're sleeping or disclosing personal info about the guys on social media. You know like I know that once upon a time, that wouldn't happen.

    Superhead came along and made these dimwits think it's cool to "tell all." The double standard is still real. A man can have sex with 5,000 women, and he will be perceived as the GOAT. A woman has sex with 2 men in the same month, and she is a natural born whore.

    They'll learn. One of these days.

    He was my 12th brother cousin on my uncle cousin sister side of the family. Now that should get me abt 2 million right? Lol smh

  • MehMeh

    frauds coming out of the woodworks.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I hate to say this but I really do hope Prince has a child out here somewhere bcuz we are suppose to create life to continue on our name and or our legacy. All I know is, if this man is Princes son, I wish he and his mother would have done the right thing and came forward b4 his death so that Prince would have known he made life bcuz Prince did want children. Anyway I just hope all this foolery will soon go away so that Prince could RIP.

  • Dakota H

    Also some talking about his great niece Victoria Nelson who is the only living relative of his brother Duane Nelson shouldn't get her share. I think she should since his grandfather and her dad are both deceased. But yes the same kinda drama with Michael Jackson family and his estate. That's why everybody need a will even if you don't have much family will fight over anything you have left.

  • http://batman-news.com Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Lol there was this guy in this FB group claiming to be his son

  • LeBrick James

    Prince used to kind of "spread himself around" back in the day, so it's possible.

  • ShWa

    I'm done with u LOL!

  • ShWa

    He looks older than Prince....

  • brownsugar

    You are on point about some celebrities have secret children. They have the mother sign confidentiality agreement and get paid off.

  • LeBrick James

    That guy in the picture is not him.
    That's just a guy mourning outside the Apollo Theater the day Prince died.

    That ninja loves him some money

  • rachel

    Interesting... the plot thickens. Prince, after fighting a long and hard battle to gain the rights to his music - suddenly commits suicide without leaving a will.

    Would someone who fought as hard as he did, for as long as he did to obtain said rights, not leave a will for the control of said rights after his demise? Would someone who did all of that, KNOWING that he was dying, not leave a will?

    Suddenly this "son" appears from nowhere... if the DNA results prove to be positive, there is a high probability that $$$$$ were paid. High- stakes games are being played right before our very eyes.

    Michael Jackson STILL has folks trying to pass as his son...

    I think Prince left most of his money to his church and his son, and his sister
    burned the will. She wont get anything if the secret son is confurmed to be princes child.

  • Tammy GILBERT

    youtube has some folks talking that these stars get cloned and after they die then this comes up type it in very scary if this true wow

  • wshh administration

    Maybe I can take the test I mean I can shoot a j and make pancakes

  • Nancy Hornberger

    I would think that one does mention after someone's death, they may be their kid. Why would you mention before? You dont get inheritance until they have past. Maybe, he didn't want to do anything while he was alive to cause trouble for him. The media would have been invading his privacy. Or, he felt that if he knew about him, he would have reached out already. And obviously, he didnt. From what I can tell if you look at pictures of Prince when he was younger this kid looks like him. People judge the Prince at the time of his death, but if you look at Prince when he was younger he was a lot darker his nose look bigger and he was more masculine looking then, not so feminine looking when he past. Google Prince when he was younger and look at the man that says he's his son the one recently not some of the people that have been saying it and he looks just like Prince When Prince was younger.

  • Taylordanes

    I have followed Prince for Many many years and I know how he looked before his surgeries and I still don't believe this.....

  • Nancy Hornberger

    So since you been following Prince all your life that overrides the DNA that's going to be done that may prove or may not prove he is his son? I'm going by a picture that was brought up on Wendy Williams Show and then I looked it up and compared it to Prince's pictures, yes it does look like his son, but there's several people that are saying they are his son depending on which one you're looking at. I don't think the other ones look like him at all but sometimes you don't have to even look like that person the DNA will prove it time will tell if he is or if he isn't.

  • Taylordanes

    You advised me to google Prince and compare pictures and I responded that I DO NOT need to because I have BEEN a fan for many many years. Not someone who just stared listening to him. I see similarities between he and this man. I see similarities between many people who are not related so as I stated before ... Now he wants to wait until he passes....

    There have been a history of people who do this when a celebrity passes and their is no heir to the estate.

    Your going by a picture that's cool. I could have been birthed by many people if you comparing my pic to theirs. Fact is you have your opinion and I have mine...

  • Nancy Hornberger

    Well, you don't know me. Don't know your age, but I'm almost 60 and I have listened to Prince for years. I didnt just start listening to him because I watch Wendy. Give me a break! That doesn't make you an expert because you have been following him for years. If I believed everything Wendy said, on her show, I would think Prince never did drugs or drank. And we all know his toxicology came back and drugs killled him. Whether it was and accident or on purpose, the end result was he took drugs. Hence, Wendy's comment. I have had clients for 25 years and they do 180's on me. That's why I started learning that things are not what they seem behind closed doors. And the people that would really know him, not the people that follow him, or Wendy, would be the people that are around him every day or that may have lived with him, that's who really knew Prince.

  • Taylordanes

    I never STATED I knew you or wanted to. You responded to a sentence I made over a month and a half ago. You also stated you observed a pic on Wendy. Your words not mine doll. I Didnt state when you started listening to Prince or watched Wendy. You made a statement for me to google old pictures of Prince as if I was not aware of how he looked in the past. I told you I know how he looked because I have been a fan. And now you want to respond that I'm no expert! Are you drunk or do you have a reading comprehension issue? You keep making assumptions doll not me. And as I stated last time you have your opinion and I have mine. You seem to want to assume things as well as state things that I am aware of. At this point I could care less. Good day
