The rul­ing comes fol­low­ing months of some­times colour­ful claims by peo­ple who say they are Prince’s de­scen­dants.

Among the claims re­ceived by the court was one from a woman who said she had a se­cret wed­ding to Prince in Las Ve­gas, and a lit­tle-known mu­si­cian who al­leged that Prince agreed on a tour bus to hand him his whole es­tate.

The judge’s rul­ing could also pro­vide more clar­ity on con­trol of Prince’s sto­ried vault of un­re­leased songs.

Com­pli­cat­ing mat­ters, only three of the heirs have been work­ing with L. Lon­dell

McMil­lan, Prince’s long­time lawyer who has ad­vised the es­tate on deals.

Other sib­lings in­clud­ing Tyka have ac­cused McMil­lan of mis­man­ag­ing a tribute con­cert last year to Prince, a charge that the lawyer de­nies.
