Here’s one more story to add to the ongoing Prince saga.
The comedian is fronting money to the family in their time of need.
Turns out … George was tight with Prince, and he learned all of the assets in the estate have been frozen until a judge determines how much the administrator can give family members for living expenses. Prince was generous with his family, giving them money and even homes during his life.
Some of the singer’s siblings are now cash strapped because they’ve been temporarily cut off, and we’ve learned George has advanced them $20k to cover living and travel expenses and that figure could go up.
We’re told George did it all anonymously … not wanting any fanfare or adulation.
Wow, this whole Prince saga is getting more interesting by the day. To say his death opens up a multitude of questions is an understatement.
Attorneys are tackling the complicated job of dividing up Prince’s estate.
The first hearing is scheduled Monday in probate court in Carver County in suburban Minneapolis. Prince’s full sister, Tyka Nelson, filed papers last week saying Prince had no known will. That means under Minnesota law his estate would be divided among his surviving siblings.
Prince made hundreds of millions of dollars for record companies, concert venues and others, and he owned about $27 million in property in Minnesota.
The “Purple Rain” star was found dead at his home on April 21. A law enforcement official has told The Associated Press that investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose and whether a doctor was prescribing him drugs in the weeks beforehand.
