Los Angeles, May 10 (IANS) A man has filed papers in Carver County, Minnesota, claiming to be late singer Prince’s biological son. He has requested for a DNA test to prove his claim.
Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, the man named Carlin Q. Williams, has also petitioned to be determined as Prince’s “sole surviving legal heir”, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The court documents feature a statement from Williams’ mother Marsha Henson, who said that she had unprotected sex with Prince in July 1976 in Kansas city and she conceived Williams that day.
On May 6, an order of genetic testing was filed in Minessota to allow DNA testing on a sample of Prince’s blood. The results of that test could then be used to settle any potential claims of paternity against the late pop star.
Though his body was cremated shortly after his death on April 21, the Midwest Medical Examiner has extracted and kept his blood, which could be used during the investigation process.
The filing also recognises “that parentage issues might arise and that timing can be of concern when conducting genetic testing”.
