Prince’s Family Battling Over TV $pecial$: Report

Barely a month after superstar Prince died unexpectedly in his Minnesota home, his surviving siblings are working hard to keep his memory alive–and keep the cash flow going.

According to TMZ, the family and their army of attorneys are angling to get to the money–and fast. The probate matters are still being worked out, but Prince’s relatives want some NOW money to tide them over. So one of the plans they’ve come up with is a star-studded, two-hour, TV special featuring heavyweight entertainment names performing Prince songs.

But that is where the agreement evidently ends.


The plan is to make the 6 siblings co-producers, which will give them enough money to tide them over as the bank running the estate figures out how to dole out the cash.

Here’s the conflict. We’re told Tyka and at least one other sibling is not on board … she wants to produce her own special and control it.

The other siblings are enraged Tyka gets to live rent free in a house Prince owned … a house on which the bank is still paying the mortgage and home-related expenses. The siblings feel they too should get comparable support, but they’re getting nothing … thus their idea for the TV special.

One source connected with the negotiations tells us, the lawyers met last week and “it’s gotten really nasty. No one can agree on anything.”–TMZ
