Prince had no known will according to his sister, the Associated Press reports.
The musician’s sister, Tyka Nelson, 55, filed paperwork asking a Minneapolis court to appoint a special administrator to oversee his estate, according to the AP, following Prince’s untimely death at 57.
Nelson is Prince’s only surviving full sibling. In her filing she says immediate action is necessary to deal with Prince’s business interests. She asks that the trust company Bremer Trust be named administrator.
Without a will that determines what happens to Prince’s estate, its future could become messy, as Business Insider reported. Prince’s net worth is valued at around $300 million.
Entertainers, however, are known for avoiding such legal planning.
“My experience with people in the music industry is, even more than other people, they think they’ll live forever,” Los Angeles-based attorney Laura Zwicker, who specializes in clients worth more than $100 million, told Business Insider. “So, getting them to focus on a plan is really a challenge.”
