A South Carolina man who claims he was Prince's adopted son says the late rock icon did indeed leave behind a will, and that he's owed $7 million, per an alleged document that no one has seen yet. To date there has been no evidence that the singer, who died on April 21 at his Paisley Park estate from an opioid overdose, had a will at the time of his death, but in documents filed in Carver County Court, Norman Yates Carthens reportedly claims he's Prince's adopted son.
According to WCCO, Carthens submitted a written statement that says he's certain Prince had a will and that it specified he was to get $7 million. At press time, though, he had not provided any proof of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member's last will and testament. On Monday, a Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide approved an aggressive timeline for testing claims of heirship to Prince's estate.
