Man Claims To Be Prince's Heir

A man has filed paperwork claiming he is Prince's son and therefore the legal heir of the late singer's estate, and wants to take a DNA test to prove it.

The documents filed Monday in Carver County claim that "The Petitioner Carlin Q. Williams is the biological child of the Decedent and the Decedent is his genetic parent. He further believes he is or may be the sole surviving legal heir of the Decedent."

Williams also requested a DNA test to determine the genetic parentage.

Last week, a Carver County judge authorized the release and analysis of Prince's blood in the event that paternity claims were to surface.

Williams' mother, Marsha J. Henson, also filed documents Monday, alleging that "Prince Rogers Nelson, 'Mr. Nelson,' is the father of my son Carlin Q. Williams."

She claims that she met Prince in July of 1976 in a Kansas City hotel, where the two had unprotected sex and "conceived Prince's son Carlin Q. Williams that day." She also claims that she didn't have sexual intercourse with anyone in the six weeks before sleeping with Prince, and didn't have sex with anyone until her son was born on April 8, 1977.

In April, Prince's sister Tyka filed legal papers indicating that the singer did not leave a will and made moves toward becoming executor of the music legend's estate. But on May 2, a woman named Darcell Johnston also stepped forward claiming she is a beneficiary in Prince's probate case, alleging she is the late musician's long-lost half sister.Prince died on April 21 at the age of 57 at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota. The autopsy was completed, but results regarding the cause of death are still pending.

The singer was reportedly in possession of painkillers at the time of his death. The singer's body was found in the elevator of his home in Minnesota, days after he was reportedly treated for an overdose of the opioid painkiller Percocet.

The family said that details of a memorial service are "coming soon."
