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.
