700 People Claiming to Be Prince’s Siblings
A company called Morse Genealogical Services has been retained to test all the people claiming to be Prince's siblings. But they're going to be awfully busy, because apparently almost 700 people from all over the country have staked a claim in the late singers estate. This story actually sickens me. What a waste of time and resources. Do people actually think just because they "claim" to be related, that the estate isn't going to do everything to prove otherwise.
The head of the company says, quote, "Our phone has been ringing off the hook, they run the gamut, literally from 'We lived in the same area so we must be related', to 'We have pictures of Prince at our family reunion.'" Prince has one full sister and five half-siblings officially, plus two half-siblings who are dead. One of them has a granddaughter who'd be entitled to a share, but the other died without having any kids.
