CHASKA, Minn. - Six months after Prince was found dead, the fight over his estate continues.
Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson and her half siblings were back in Carver County court Friday for a hearing to examine whether descendants of Duane Nelson's children can inherit Prince's estate.
Prince considered Duane Nelson a member of the family, and Prince's dad, the late John L. Nelson, embraced the role as Duane's father.
Duane Nelson's daughter, Brianna Nelson and an 11-year old girl are at the crux of the latest controversy.
By contrast, attorneys for Prince's sister Tyka and other half-siblings argued that Brianna and the 11-year-old have no legal right in Minnesota to share in the estate because they are not genetically related to Prince.
The judge didn't make a ruling Friday but says he hopes to do "so quickly."
As you can imagine these hearings are draining resources. Prince's estate is valued at $100 million to $300 million.
