Family feud over Prince's estate denied

A judge overseeing Prince's estate case has denied that the singer's family have fallen out.

Prince's sister and his five living half-siblings all attended a Minnesota court hearing on Monday (May 2), where they once again approved the singer's former associates at Bremer Trust to manage his multi-million-dollar fortune.

Judge Kevin Eide also made clear during the 10-minute hearing that Prince's relatives are "openly communicating", not feuding.

"The attorneys want me to emphasize that the heirs have all expressed confidence in Bremer Trust," the judge said (via NBC News).

Last week, Prince's sister Tyka Nelson asked a Minnesota court to appoint Bremer Trust as managers of the estate since the singer had no known will.

Little is known yet about the future of Prince's fortune and business holdings - although there are plans to turn his Paisley Park estate into a museum for fans.

The singer was found dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park music compound near Minneapolis on April 21, leading to an outpouring of grief from fans around the world.

The Midwest Medical Examiner's Officer has since said it could take weeks to determine a cause of death, while police reported on Friday that they found no signs of foul play or suicide.
