Following the death of acclaimed pop sensation Prince April 21, his siblings will head to probate court Monday to continue discussing who will control the deceased singer's sizable estate. His fortune is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and it may include a rumored vault in his recording studio outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota, that is said to contain dozens of unreleased records. The last meeting between his siblings – including Prince's half-brother, Alfred Jackson, and his full-sister Tyka Nelson – ended in a screaming match, according to sources close to the talks, and Prince was reportedly estranged from most of his living siblings. He did not have a will, meaning his fortune will go to his siblings, as he was divorced and had no living children, grandparents or parents at the time of his death. Sheila E., full name Sheila Escovedo, a former band mate and ex-fiancé of the deceased singer, has reportedly made claims to the estate, as well, saying publicly only that she wanted to preserve his legacy.
