Prince estate’s legal bills hit $2 million
Los Angeles, Aug 3 (IANS) Legal bills for sorting out late pop icon Prince’s estate have hit almost $2 million, according to figures submitted to court by the estate’s special administrators.
The special administrator overseeing the affairs of Prince — who died from an accidental overdose in April without leaving a will — is seeking permission from the court to pay several law firms for work, including a huge $1.9 million for just one company, the Stinson Leonard Street firm, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Smaller amounts to various other lawyers add up to almost $100,000, with the figures submitted correct up until June 30.
The administrators, Bremer Trust, have also asked the court to approve their own fees, but those amounts were filed under seal, meaning they are not made available publicly.
As well as the documents relating to legal costs, the administrators also submitted paperwork seeking to sell some of Prince’s homes this week.
