The Prince Estate Allowed to Sell Real Estate; Family Holds Private Memorial

by Music-News.com Newsdesk

The administrator of Prince's estate has been granted permission to offload a number of the late star's real estate holdings.

The Purple Rain icon did not leave a will when he died in April, after suffering a drug overdose at his Paisley Park home near Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the administrator at Bremer Trust recently asked a judge to put various properties on the market.

Prince's famous Paisley Park compound, which also includes a recording studio, will not be part of the sale, but other pads near his hometown of Chanhassen are.

A court filing had reportedly included a list of nearly 20 places which could be sold, and on Thursday, Judge Kevin Eide allowed the administrator to list six properties this month; however, they will have to seek another affidavit before they can put the other buildings on the market, according to Access Hollywood.

Meanwhile, tickets are reportedly due to go on sale soon for the first official event in honor of the music legend.

Prince's siblings have organised the tribute celebration at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on October 13.

A statement from the family reads: "We have been moved by the tremendous love and support of Prince's friends and fans around the world. We are excited for the opportunity to bring everyone together for the official family celebration of Prince's life, music and legacy, and there is no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis.

"We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible."

Performers for the concert have yet to be announced.

In addition, Prince's family have reportedly held a private service to remember the iconic musician.

A cousin of the Purple Rain hitmaker told Billboard.com family members and close friends gathered in Minneapolis on Friday to bid a fond farewell to their loved one and remember his life.

Charles 'Chazz' Smith told local news channel KARE-TV that Friday's service was held at a Minneapolis church, and another is planned for Saturday at Paisley Park.

He opened up during the short interview, revealing the late musician's family have been finding it hard over the last few months, and they're trying hard to preserve Prince's image.

Talking about his death from a Fentanyl overdose, Smith said he hoped it would help others struggling with a painkiller addiction to seek help.
