A man claiming to be the secret love child of Prince has began legal proceedings to prove his paternity and could inherit a slice of Prince ‘s multi-million fortune if the allegation is found to be true.
According to Radaronline, Heir Hunters International has confirmed it is working on the case of an unidentified man in his 30s whose mother allegedly had several liaisons with the singer in the 1980s and according to them he’s got a strong case.
The singer, who passed away on April 21 age 57, died without a will or an heir leaving his fortune to be divided up between his nearest relatives.
The alleged man is in his 30s and lives in the Midwest according to the Heir Hunters and when he contacted the organisation claimed his mother had several encounters with Prince during the 1980s.
According to the duo the man didn’t seem “crazy” and said there was something about the man’s case that stood out:
“The way we approached everything was just completely different than what we had seen. He wasn’t looking for that 15 minutes of fame. It wasn’t a crazy story and it really started piecing together.
“He’s very nice, not crazy. He’s somebody who’s not star-struck crazy or wants to be famous. Not at all.”For now, he plans to stay away from the current court proceedings, but likely will come forward after more research is done, they claimed. “We’re at the beginning stages in a way,” Mansukhani told Radar.
