Prince's Siblings Meet in Court, but Did He Have More Heirs?

Prince's siblings gathered in a Minnesota court on Monday for a probate hearing on Prince's estate, beginning the process of sorting out the singer's estimated $300 million fortune.

At the hearing, which lasted only minutes, Judge Kevin Eide confirmed last week's appointment of Bremer Trust, National Association as the special administrator of Prince's estate, and Bremer Trust said they are still actively looking for a will -- although at this time, none has been discovered. Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, previously stated in court documents that she does not know of any will in existence.

Aside from Tyka, potential beneficiaries of Prince's fortune include the "Purple Rain" singer's five half-siblings: John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Omarr Baker, and Alfred Jackson. All were present in court on Monday except for John, who is also the only sibling to not have signed a consent form for Bremer Trust to handle Prince's estate.

Tyka sat on one side of the bench during the hearing, as her half-siblings sat on the other.

Judge Eide said that all of the heirs have agreed to open communication. He also noted that he doesn't know what other claims might be coming, or who else might come forward in the case.

According to Minnesota state law, Prince's estate will be divided among his siblings, since he didn't leave behind a living spouse, children, parents, or grandparents.

Last week, ET sat down exclusively with Prince's half-brother, Alfred, who reminisced about his childhood memories with the late icon.
