A woman has come forth claiming to be Prince’s long-lost half sister. 

Darcell Gresham Johnston says that she shares a mother with Prince, and is entitled to a slice of the late musician’s estate, whose values is estimated between $300 and $800 million. 

There are already six claimants on Prince’s estate.

Johnson’s lawyers have already filed a legal document in Prince’s probate case, TMZ reports. 

There are already six claimants on Prince’s estate, including her full sister Tyka Nelson and 5 half-siblings. 

Prince’s estate is being managed by Bremer Trust, as the lengthy legal process for apportioning the estate begins. 

The company gained access to Prince’s mansion in Minneapolis and conducted a search for a will, but found none, NY Daily News reports. 

“None of us has a crystal ball. Who knows what claims will be made, who will appear as a potential heir. We’ll address it as they come,” the judge said at a Monday, May 2, hearing attended by five of Prince’s siblings.

Prince has no living heirs apart from his siblings. The musician was twice divorced and has no living children.

Aside from the issue of his will, investigators are also looking in whether Prince overdosed from prescription painkillers, which he was seen purchasing the day before his death.
