Among the claimants were five people who said they were children of Prince and, because the rocker had no recognised offspring, could potentially have gained his entire estate estimated to be worth more than US$300 million (S$400 million).

One said his mother had a brief sexual relationship with Prince but the judge said that any right of inheritance was voided as the alleged son was legally adopted by another family.
