Judge Allows Prince Estate Administrators to Test ‘Purple Rain’ Star’s Blood
The Carver County judge also gave anyone with an estate claim four months to file notice. One major claim for over $750 billion has already been filed by a woman named Dr. K.K. Ferraro in Atlanta, Georgia. She submitted a letter along with a handwritten claim in which she details her “now 40 years long post-Civil Rights Movement Sociopolitical Hostage Crisis” for which she says she’s been seeking compensation from Prince since 1985. The judge dismissed an earlier $1 billion claim against the estate by a California man who said there was an “implied” agreement from Prince entitling him to the superstar’s musical rights, both published and unpublished, according to the Star Tribune newspaper.
