Fans still mourning the death of Prince are baffled as to why the late superstar was so meticulous in his business dealings, but failed to write a will. Yet, a filmmaker and best-selling author now researching Prince's last days spoke to TheWrap and insists that Prince did have a will, and that he believes this document is in Toronto, Canada.
The award winning filmmaker, Ian Halperin, has recently been speaking to many Prince insiders and has been documenting Prince's final days. He believes that authorities have not yet done their "due diligence" to locate the will. He insists that Prince had a will and the courts should wait a full year in order to search and find Prince's will.
Prince Rogers Nelson's estate is worth around $200 million dollars including multiple properties-real estate, as well as intellectual properties. Many surmise that there is a gold mine just in the infamous Prince vault.
Just over two weeks ago, Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, has already taken legal action. After stating that they did not find a will at Paisley Park, Prince's Chanhassen Minnesota home and recording complex, she immediately responded. She filed a request for a special administrator to handle Prince's vast assets including the vault of pristine recordings. Bremer Trust was immediately appointed by the court to handle the estate for four months.
The first action Bremer took was to drill through the vault and remove all of the valuable contents. They were forced to hire a company to use this force as Prince was the only one with the key-and no key was found to open the vault in the traditional way. Many people held out hope that the will was tucked along with the valuables, but no will was found amongst the fabled recordings.
