As the battle for Prince's $300 million estate continues, his alleged nieces, Brianna and Victoria Nelson, are opposing the court's order to get a DNA test proving their connection, has exclusively learned.

Since many individuals have come forward claiming to be related to the late pop star, the court-appointed Special Administrator, Bremer Trust, ordered that all people claiming heirship must be genetically tested.

But the Nelsons refuse to do it, and their attorney, Andrew Stoltmann, said he believes the order is actually violating the law!

"We simply asked the judge to follow the law in Minnesota  Specifically under the Minnesota Parentage Act, there's a specific protocol for who is or isn't a biological heir," he told Radar. "Under the Parentage Act, as a matter of law, because Duane Nelson, according to his birth certificate, shares a biological father with Prince, he is an heir."

"So there isn't a need for testing, for at least Brianna and Victoria Nelson," he insisted. "We have no issue with other folks being tested, but the Minnesota Parentage Act doesn't require it for in this case someone who has John L. Nelson listed as a biological father."

As Radar previously reported, Victoria – who is a minor – and her aunt, Brianna, were first bought to the court's attention after Wisconsin lawyer Michael B. Padden wrote a letter to the judge revealing their alleged rights to the fortune.

Nor long after, their attorney filed their family's birth certificates as evidence.

Stoltmann noted that he and his clients are expecting a response to their objection at the highly-anticipated probate hearing on June 27.
