The judge ruled that DNA Diagnostics Center should perform the test, because the bank "is authorized to take all reasonable and necessary actions," "recognizing that parentage issues might arise."

Indeed, as reported, at least one alleged love child has come forward in an attempt to prove his links to the singer, who died at 57 on April 21.

John Hilbert and Shar Mansukhani of Heir Hunters previously told that not long after Prince's death, they received many calls and emails from people claiming to be related to the star. "At that time, we received a phone call from a gentlemen who said 'What is the procedure for me to prove my paternity to Prince as his child?'" Hilbert told


"We have a standard protocol. We want a certified copy of your birth record and we also want a detailed description of why you think you would be related to Prince," Hilbert explained. "It added up with where Prince was and where his mother was."

The alleged love child is in his mid-30's and currently lives in the Midwest. The Heir Hunters explained that the Prince's possible son claimed that his mother and the late singer had several encounters in the 80's.

If that claim cannot be validated, Prince's $300M fortune will be split among Tyka Nelson (Prince's only full sister), Albert Jackson, Omarr Baker, John Nelson, Norrine Nelson and Sharon Nelson.
