& to summarise on the last 7 parts...what a friggin mess this has become!

Can honestly see why Prince was super cynical about record companies & associated leeches. Surely to God there must be 1 decent legal eagle who can step in & sort this mess & come to a resolution for all parties?

Lawsuits from the Tribute Concert

https://www.pollstar.com/news_article.aspx?ID=830664

One year after Prince’s death, multiple disputes are being brought to a Minnesota court regarding the October concert tribute to Prince featuring Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan.

Responsibility for the concert fell to the Bremer Trust, the court-approved administrator of the estate. Advisers L. Londell McMillan and Charles Koppelman made many of the moves to organize the event, the first of which was to hire New York-based promoter Joba Presents, which dropped out two months before the show and is now suing Bremer.

No matter what you think about M2, she was the one who made the comment about the leeches and hangers-on around Prince. Even in Rolling Stone, there was a statement that he was taking financial advice from 20-something women with no expertise in the field. I adore him, and will forever, and he did it his way, but geez ... could he have left more of a mess if he tried?

Prince had nothing to do with the hi-jinks of these two. In fact he did make provisions for his music by signing that licensing deal with WB if news reports are to be belived the soundtracks albums are licensed for enternity and some licenses are for enternity internationally. This means no estate manager, family or courts or going to be able to do anything with that music. If this type of terms are surrounding the WB vault years Prince made provisons that could have eaisly have been overturned if he had a will.

Should he have a will - No he should have had a trust but I do not think he was planning on dying and any wills he had in the past with the ex-wives in them would have been withdrawn.

I kind of think the Tidal deal was also his way of placing the music where he wanted it to go these two monkeys came on the scence and appear to have done nothing but cut deals so they could get commissions for themselves if they were too stupid to even do the due dillengence to see what the licensing agreements contained or actually find out if someone had POA or if Tidal forwarded a million dollars to Prince what does that tell you about them.

I also would not take anything M2 has to say seriously after reading those divorce e-mails and seeing her endless motions over some damm jewlery. I am sure she was worried those $5,000 hair and spa appoints were going to end and she would be replaced by that 20-something since she did have any expertise in anything went she wreaked a marriage.

I believe the last legal people who worked for him got him back his masters so while he had his screw ups like anyone in business it did not stop him from pulling off something many artist from his era were not able to do.

I also note that Prince was able to actually get a concert off the fucking ground and still donate the proceeds to charity unlike these two dicks.

The Estate is a mess beyond Londell McMillan and Charles Koppelman. Of course that's what happens when there is no will. I guess Prince didn't care if chaos ensued once he was gone.

The company running PP is doing a good job and I am inclined to believe PP will improve in time.

After all is said and done, I would not be surprised if WB has full licensing rights to Prince's entire work. I could and probably am wrong.

As the messy probate continues, the money is being drained by legal fees and infighting amongst the non-excluded heirs. I think once things settle and money is very limited from legal fees and taxes, WB will make an offer for licensing and the hiers will jump at it. Just my 2 cents.

I believe WB will get to license everything in the end and suspect that this is the reason they have license rights to some of the music forever that clause along gave WB a end to them license everything one day and no one put a gun to Prince's head to agree to it.

Guys he is going to get his way on that one. Also Graceland is doing a great job with Paisley Park so I doubt there are any worries.

Found out more stuff about Smitty Boykins. It is owned by Mr. Eric Benet.

I stumbles across a person looking for work in the entertainment field as a PA and lo and behold she use to work for Smitty Boykins ( Eric Benet) See below. Why would Prince invest in an Eric Benet business venture or did M2 invest?

WB licensing everything may not be a bad thing. I know over the years, management has changed a lot, but to have 1 single entity licensing the music may help the heirs on their business end rather than multiple operartions.

We are in agreement with Graceland running PP. I am not privy to the contract details, but that will be steady income for the heirs over time.

Hopefully, when the estate is resolved, releases from the vault will be steady and of quality. I anticipate WB to release things over time and not in volume.

It is a pecular investment, but who knows. I would be more inclined that Mani did the investment. I wonder how much control and hands off Prince was on the charity in when it came to Mani.

I am beginning to wonder how much involvement he had as well and why he shut it down after the divorce and started giving money to charities without the use of a foundation. Also realize that M2 could have soaked him for half of his income in that divorce and she walked away with a only a few million. Any lawyer would have taken her as a client on a contingency basis.

This along with the theft of the church which was owned by L4OAT and the associates crying about Kirk makes me wonder. Who was the judas?

He has something to do with not having a will which put people like Bremar in charge in the first place.

He has something to do with not having a will which put people like Bremar in charge in the first place.

If he has a will someone possibly Breamer would have been the executor of the estate and could have made the same stupid moves. Or one of the sibs would have used the fact that he was on pain pills to contest the will ( JB and Ray Charles both had wills that were contested with their wishes not being followed) Look at how quickly Sharon became a client of Londell's.

Or the sibs would have sold off everything by now. The best think he could have done was to have had a trust not a will however, if some portions of his licensing deal with WB is forever he pretty much made sure that no matter what Lonnie and Kopplecrook do certain releases her going to be handled in the manner that he wanted.

Not having a will has nothing to do with these two not during their fiducary duty for the estate. Kind of like Trump caring on about President Obama every five minutes when the big O is no longer in charge.

With the lifetime of toxic familial relations, in which everyone's already been provided for, it is quite obvious Prince did not care one bit if any of his earned money went to anyone other than who he may have already taken care of privately.

Screw that whole family, let the lawyers soak up all the money. And Bremer Tust is a bank so how are they supposed to know who the crooks are in the concert promotion business? And Bremer was ALWAYS supposed to be temporary, nobody fired them good grief blame everyone and their brother for this fiasco except the man who, with an hour of his time could have prevented this circus- Prince! Unless of course. . . Someone destroyed the will. It's not like these bad actors are the first in humankind to take advantage of a weak situation. That's why people make wills and have them recorded/stored in a safe place.

Breamer had a duty to oversee things. They had the option of walking away instead of standing back and providing no oversight. Thankfully we have laws in this country and we don't allow fruad and mismanagement go unchecked because the dead guy is responsible. Oh there is no will so it is time to move on past that.

Moonsister, why should Prince be on the hook for anything??
LOL
I am implying/ agree he *knew* chaos and disorder, contest, greed, etc.
Or maybe he hoped for the best it would all be mature and peaceful
or maybe he did not give a fig
IT WAS HIS MONEY. It did not matter to him after he died,
Otherwise, there would have been a will (and people just can't find a will
and secretly destroy them, because they are filed and notarized on record when drawn up)
In fact, I bet he is pleased it's going to Minnesota!

And Bremer was ALWAYS supposed to be temporary, nobody fired them good grief blame everyone and their brother for this fiasco except the man who, with an hour of his time could have prevented this circus- Prince! Unless of course. . . Someone destroyed the will. It's not like these bad actors are the first in humankind to take advantage of a weak situation. That's why people make wills and have them recorded/stored in a safe place.[/quote


Breamer had a duty to oversee things. They had the option of walking away instead of standing back and providing no oversight. Thankfully we have laws in this country and we don't allow fruad and mismanagement go unchecked because the dead guy is responsible. Oh there is no will so it is time to move on past that.

Oh sure blame Bremer for what Kop and Mac did, but let Prince off the hook? Sorry, NO.

Are you five years old? We have laws that hold people who are alive accountable for their actions. We cannot do anything about the people who are not around.

Finally people are realising that Prince did it his way. Raise an LLC to handle his music in such a way that he rules from the grave. He has total control over his "children" by leaving beneficiaries for proceeds from his music with extended copyrights for 120 years. Who those beneficiaries are is a question to ponder but I am guessing not family members. Instead philantrophy. Imagine his charities benefitting for that many years. I thought PP would also remain under the LLC but maybe there was a reason legally that he left it to his estate for family to control. No will was perhaps intentional but he must have known how his family would "fight" to benefit from any monies left after taxes. He may not have finalised all he intended to do with his property and the LLC was the first step. I dont think he planned to die.His memoir, his LLC, his plans for PP in the pipeline all indicate a man organising his affairs for a change, but I think it was a change of direction, not death. I still find the comments of Tyka on his death as unfathomable.
