The Petition asked the court to appoint a regional bank as the administrator of Prince’s estate, and listed five half siblings as Prince’s heirs, in addition to the sister filing the Petition.  This Petition is only the start of what’s likely to be a protracted process of sorting out what Prince left behind and how best to distribute his assets.

Reportedly,  in addition to his financial investments, he left behind ownership of his publishing catalog in addition to archival recordings, and real property worth millions. Since his death, the Times reports that 650,000 Prince albums and 2.8 million tracks of his songs have been sold.
