CARVER COUNTY, Minnesota– Prince‘s sister has filed legal documents stating the late superstar did not have a will.

Tyka Nelson filed on Tuesday to open a probate case in Minnesota’s Carver County, which is where her brother’s Paisley Park estate is located.

In the documents, she states that “I do not know of the existence of a Will and have no reason to believe that the Decedent executed testamentary documents in any form.”

Prince was worth $300 million according to various estimates, including one from Celebrity Net Worth. And his estate is expected to grow as sales of his music have exploded since his death.

Tyka Nelson is the only full sibling of Prince, who died last week at the age of 57. Prince was not married and had no living children who could potentially inherit the millions to come from his estate.

The singer had a thriving brand which included thousands of unreleased songs, a record label and his Paisley Park property.

Nelson and Prince also have half siblings, John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Alfred Jackson and Omar Baker, all of whom are also also named in the petition as heirs.

Prince’s sister has requested that a special administrator be appointed to deal with the singer’s assets.
