For now, he plans to stay away from the current court proceedings, but likely will come forward after more research is done, they claimed. "We're at the beginning stages in a way,” Mansukhani told Radar. “Before we move forward we've got a lot more investigating to do, because we're sticking our reputation on anyone we would bring forward. We're just going to make sure we do everything that we can to solidify his claim."

Although the alleged love child would have sole rights to Prince’s $300 million estate, the Heir Hunters claim that he’s not in it for the money or fame. "The way we approached everything was just completely different than what we had seen. He wasn't looking for that 15 minutes of fame. It wasn't a crazy story and it really started piecing together,” Hilbert said.
