TMZ reports that Tyka, a former crack addict, has filed the probate documents in Minnesota, asking a judge to appoint a "special administrator," who under the Minnesota law, is someone who is appointed when there is no executor named in a will. 

The reports reveal that the documents read:

"I do not know of the existence of a will and have no reason to believe that the decedent executed testamentary documents in any form."

Earlier reports reveal that, in the case where Prince, who had died at age 57 on April 21, 2016, had indeed died without a will, his estate will be divided equally among his siblings.

TMZ also reports that Tyka had made a list of the potential beneficiaries, all of whom are reportedly half brothers and sisters.

They are, John, Norrine, Sharon, Alfred and Omarr and are all living siblings of Prince, also reportedly adding that she's an heir entitled to her share of the estate.

The reports further reveal that a line in the documents read, "The decedent has heirs whose identities and addresses need to be determined."

Tyka reportedly names Bremer Trust, National Association, which she wants to serve as the official administrator of Prince's estate, her reasons being that they have provided financial services to Prince for years, and are well versed in his affairs which makes them best suited to protect his assets.

These reports which are yet to be substantiated, are only made stranger with the fact that Tyka had been spotted grinning widely at Prince's funeral over the weekend, but then again, who wouldn't when they stand to inherit a huge chunk of his estate.
