The number of alleged Prince heirs has grown too big for the court to handle! RadarOnline.com has learned that the situation in Minnesota is so out of control, the judge in the dead singer's probate case has issued an order creating a special protocol to handle claims from alleged descendants.
Carver Country, Minnesota, Judge Kevin W. Eide ordered on Monday that a court-appointed "Special Administrator" would be responsible for ensuring all alleged heirs follow the new rules, the document obtained by Radar states.
The new order comes just days after Wisconsin attorney Michael B. Padden wrote to the judge claiming that an unmanned minor is actually the late singer's great niece or nephew.
As Radar previously reported, a convicted felon, Carlin Q. Williams, also claims he is Prince's son.
Moving forward, "Any party claiming a genetic relationship to the decedent that may give rise to heirship must file an affidavit with the Court setting forth the facts that establish the reasonable possibility of the existence of such a relationship," the filing states.
Once the possible heir files the necessary paperwork and his or her story checks out, the Special Administrator will come up with a plan that may include mandatory DNA testing. However, those seeking the "blood or genetic tests" might have to pay for it themselves.
"The Special Administrator is authorized to engage DNA Diagnostics Center to perform the blood and genetic testing required to determine if a genetic relationship to the decedent exists," the order reads. A vial of Prince's blood is being kept at the Medical Examiner's office for that purpose.
Any objections or motions to the new protocol will be presented at a hearing set to take place on June 27, 2016.
