Here we go...News article "Paternity test proves Prince left a son"

From drfunkenberry Facebook page:

A rumor is being reported that PRINCE who passed away on April 21st, 2016, may have a living illegitimate son according to the Santa Monica Observer. I want to stress this is a rumor and the estate has not made an official confirmation on this matter. The article advises the estate, which is being run by Bremer Trust, they are aware of the results. http://www.drfunkenberry....has-a-son/

As posted on the Estate Part 2 sticky. http://prince.org/msg/7/429559

**********************************




It sounds like it's the one we heard about early on who is from the Midwest. Should be interesting to see if it's true.


Paternity Test Proves That Prince Rogers Nelson Left a Son.


Genetic testing verifies one unidentified man's claim to be the Purple Rain singer's illegitimate son.

July 28, 2016



An unidentified man in his 30s whose mother allegedly had several liaisons with Prince in the 1980s, has DNA showing Prince has a 99% probability of being his father.


Independent genetic testing at a Santa Monica lab, has verified that an unidentified man in his 30s whose mother allegedly had several liaisons with Prince in the 1980s, has DNA showing Prince has a 99% probability of being the man's father.


Prince Rogers Nelson died from a fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park recording Minnesota home on April 21, 2016. He was 57. His staff found the singer dead in an elevator and called 911. He never married and died without a will. Prince left no children and no obvious heirs to his estimated net worth $300 million estate, other than one full sister, Tyka Nelson. So it was believed.


SMObserved.com has learned that genetic testing does in fact verify the authenticity of one claimant, to be the illegitimate child of the Purple Rain star. This child, a young man who is now an adult, is the son of Prince and a woman who, in the 1980's used to perform in the same clubs as the singer (though the mother was not a member of Prince's band).


The claimant, who never met his father, has negotiated with the Singer's estate and preserved his privacy (i.e., his mother desired anonymity) until today. However, if he wants to share in his estate, he will have to either settle his claim, or come forward with a legal filing in Court by the end of September.


Genetic testing has verified his claim, we have learned, so the Estate may ultimately settle with him. Since the Court must approve the settlement, the entire story will soon be public information whether or not the settlement is contested.

I hope it's true so we can see what this son looks like and see how the rest of Prince's clan act.

It would be sad that prince never knew he had a son living right there under his nose...

We'll see. How could anyone have a child by such a man and not want to be part of his life? Of course back in the 80's it would have been more difficult to prove paternity--there wasn't any genetic testing.

He could not have known. The mother must have kept it from him--until now. That's tragic. For the man and his father.

So if true, this man inherits everything?

Orrrrr...

Could P have orchestrated this?

What if he suspected he had a child and deliberately didn't leave a will in hopes that the child would surface?

Damn. I was just thinking in another thread about if his son with Mayte had lived, might have been a grandfather in the next few years, but now...what if this guy had already made him one????

That makes me so sad.

I'd hate to think he had a kid, didn't know and then this kid gets to inherit his legacy. Shame, if true.

Well I hope he did have a child and who knows maybe he knew that and things just didn't work out and the mom didn't pursue it. She probably didn't want her child to grow up under spotlights. I hope he's handsome just like Prince. How great would that be to look at him and see Prince. If he is his child I hope his family doesn't make this difficult.

There was a rumour going around in the 90s, that at Paisley Park jams/parties, there was always a young kid hanging around in the shadows and it quite possible that he was Princes' son!!

Maybe this was what those documents from the other attorney here about...and now I'm wondering if Mayte and Manu knew.

If this is true I think that he and Tyka deserve Prince's estate...the rest of those half siblings shit I don't know. I know they're related just doesn't seem right that some of them really hadn't seen Prince in years.

Only if he had a relationship with this person. Again, that's IF this is true. IF it was a child he never knew about and never met I don't think it's right that they deserve his estate (though they probably would get some of it anyway).

I see it like this if he didn't know his dad was Prince and missed out of such a great thing why screw him twice? If Prince was his father then he deserves what's rightfully his. I do believe though that Tyka deserves her fair share though. the rest of them folks...well neutral

Is this that first guy we discussed a while back, the one that actually looked a bit like Prince, in the black and white pic, with the afro?

In all honestly, I hope he has no illegitimate son/daughter. That would be awful. The fact that he never met him would leave too many unanswered questions and we already have plenty of those, thank you very much.

You know who I feel sorry for? Prince. If that is his son, why not tell him? Especially after he lost a child in terrible circumstances. He wanted a family and never got to have one. Now they come forward to claim his money but deprived him of being a father,

That's if this is true...
Baby, you're a star.

Meet me in another world, space and joy

I find it hard to believe Prince would not want the world to know he had a son. He wanted children so bad, according to all the articles we have read. I just find it hard to believe that if he did have a son, he wouldn't have had his son at Paisley Park all of the time, teaching him the music that made him so famous. And I find it hard to believe that a mother would not want her son to have a loving relationship with his father, especially if it was Prince. Just doesn't sound true.

I WISH YOU LOVE, I WISH YOU HEAVEN SWEET PRINCE...

I don't know about any of that, but if the DNA confirms it, who am I to argue?

I wonder if Tyka knew about this, but also knew that without a will, it would remain private due to the trust.

If so, that was pretty sneaky of P. I'm impressed.
