Sharon Nelson, half-sister of the late American singer-songwriter Prince, announced the death of her brother and heir to the singer’s estate, John Nelson.
On April 21, 2016, the world mourned the death of the famous singer and multi-instrumentalist Prince, who is known for his beautiful lifestyle, hermaphrodite personality, and incredible range of sound..
Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose. He was 57 when he died. Two years after the death of the singer, the police announced the results of the investigation into his death and verified the last days of him.
Police told reporters that Prince thought he was taking Vicodin for pain control, but unknowingly took a fake drug containing fentanyl. However, officials were unable to determine who provided him with the fake drug that killed him.
Prince died without a will or direct descendants, prompting several legal disputes over his estate. In May 2017, a Minnesota judge ruled that his sister and five of his half-siblings were the legal heirs to the estate.
Prince’s sister, Taika Nelson, and her half brother Sharon Nelson, Noreen Nelson, John R. Nelson, Omar Baker and Alfred Jackson are listed as heirs to the estate. While Brianna Nelson and Victoria Nelson claimed to be his niece and granddaughter, they were rejected. .
Half of the property is now owned by a music company called Primary Wave, which bought 100% of the property from Baker and Jackson and 90% of the property from Tyka.
After Primary Wave acquired half the property, Norrine, Sharon, and John became Prince’s remaining family heirs. After John’s death on September 4, this number has dropped to two.
Sharon announced the death of her brother through a tweet. She shared a photo of him and wrote that she died at 7:47 pm.
Many tweets responded to this post and expressed grief over John’s death. They also expressed their deepest condolences to their families.
John was born in Prince in 1944 to his father John Nelson and his first wife Vivienne. He was joined by the iconic singer’s late half-sister, Lorna Nelson, and his half-brother, Duane Nelson, who died years ago. Lorna died in 2006 at the age of 63, while Duane died in 2011 at the age of 52.
