Judge authorizes release of late singer's blood for DNA

A Minnesota judge ruled on May 6, that samples of Prince’s blood are to be released for testing should people step forward, claiming inheritance of his estate.

Prince was to meet with doctor for painkiller addiction

US weekly obtained some documents which shows that the court recognizes that “parentage issues might arise and that timing can be seen of concern when conducting genetic testing.”

Judge Kevin W. Eide the order, authorizing Bremer Trust, the current administrator of Prince’s estate, to “take all reasonable and necessary actions to analyze the decedent’s blood sample, including but not limited to conducting genetic testing of decedent’s blood.”

Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, who was once touted to be the lucky benefactor of Prince's intestate death, alongside his five half-siblings — John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Alfred Jackson and Omarr Baker — decided during a short hearing last week that they will continue to allow Bremer Trust to manage Prince’s assets.

Prince once had a son, Boy Gregory, who was just one week old when he died in October 1996. He is however survived by two ex-wives

Investigation into the cause of Prince's death is also still ongoing, and autopsy results have not yet been released.
