Prince’s sister, half-siblings and possible niece and grandniece have filed kinship claims

DNA test results show a Colorado prison inmate is not Prince’s son, a person who has seen a sealed document said Wednesday, and therefore is not entitled to inherit a fortune worth up to $300 million US.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to release the finding that Carlin Q. Williams is not Prince’s son.

TMZ, citing sources with direct knowledge of the case, first reported the DNA results.

Prince died of an accidental drug overdose on April 21 and no will has emerged for him. He had no known surviving children.

Williams claimed that his mother had unprotected sex with Prince at a Kansas City, Missouri, hotel in 1976. Williams, a 39-year-old Kansas City man whose long criminal record includes drug and domestic violence charges, is serving nearly eight years in federal prison for unlawfully transporting a firearm in a stolen vehicle.

An attorney for Williams did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Under Minnesota law, Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, several half-siblings, and a possible niece and grandniece currently stand to inherit shares of the estate. The judge overseeing the estate case, Carver County Judge Kevin Eide, has not set a deadline for filing paternity and kinship claims.

Eide has sealed several documents in the case due to the “confidential nature” of issues related to heirs under Minnesota law.
