Deals ensure cash keeps flowing to unsettled Prince estate

Posted April 15

— It's been nearly a year since Prince died of an accidental drug overdose, and his Paisley Park studio complex and home near Minneapolis is has become a museum and concert venue.

Fans can now stream most of his classic albums and a remastered version of his album "Purple Rain" is due out in June.

Prince left no known will when he died last April 21 and the judge overseeing the estate has yet to formally declare six of his siblings as its heirs. The judge is waiting for appeals by some rejected would-be heirs to run their course.

But the companies running the estate have taken steps to preserve his musical legacy and ensure that the cash will keep coming in.
