The documents do, however, leave open the possibility for more heirs to come forward within a year's time, after that it’s a closed case for any more potential heirs to come forward.

The order from the court states that there shall be no distribution of assets from the estate to the heirs without a formal order from the court. The estate is currently being handled by an appointed trust Comerica Bank Trust which was designated by the First Judicial District Court Of Carver County.

Prince died of a an overdose of the opioid fentanyl and making things more complicated, he did not leave a will. His body was found in the elevator of his estate in Minnesota named Paisley Park on April 21, 2016 he was just 57 years old. The legal wrangling over not just his estate but his music catalog has been non stop since his passing.

As Radar previously reported, the late singer's home had become a drug den in his final years. Carver County Sheriff’s search warrants reported that he had pill bottles filled out under different names, and various drugs hidden in various bottles around his home.
