Five of the six Prince siblings attended the first hearing to deal with the late performers estate.

On Monday, in a probate court a judge asked the siblings if anyone knew if Prince had a will, then the room fell silent, according to reports.

The judge then declared not that Prince didn’t have a will, “but that one had yet to be found,” and then appointed a special administrator from Bremer Trust to help to deal with details of his estate that’s estimated to be worth millions of dollars.

Siblings who attended included, Tyka Nelson, the pop-singers only full sibling, and four other half siblings- Norrine Nelson, Alfred Jackson, Sharon Nelson , and Omarr Baker. One other half sibling,  John Nelson, was not at the meeting.

After the 12-minute hearing two of the siblings embraced. One of the siblings’ attorney said that they are all in agreement. “Everyone is in full accord,” he said.

The pop singer died last month at age 57. He was found dead in his Paisely Park home.

As previously reported, prescription painkillers were found in his possession when he died and in his home. A judge has sealed the documents and search warrants in the investigation of his death.
