Reports: Man claiming to be Prince's son isn't Prince's son, DNA shows


One of the people claiming to be Prince's son is not Prince's son, according to reports.

Results of a DNA test show Carlin Q. Williams is not Prince's child, and is not entitled to inherit the star's fortune, anonymous sources who weren't authorized to speak about the results told The Associated Press, TMZ and CNN.

The results of the genetic testing were reported Wednesday, despite Carver County Judge Kevin Eide ordering they be sealed because they are "confidential in nature." (Sealing these documents is allowed under Minnesota law.)

Williams, who is serving time in a Colorado prison on gun charges, claims his mother met Prince in 1976, and they had unprotected sex in a hotel room in Kansas City.

He's among a handful of people who have come forward claiming to be a rightful heir to Prince's estate. The court says some have claimed to be Prince's child, while others say they're a sibling, half-sibling or a more distant relative, a court order issued Wednesday says.

A court hearing in the case is scheduled for Tuesday. A previous order from the court said those making claims to Prince's estate could have their motions or objections heard at the 8:30 a.m. hearing, but it's not clear if that will happen, the order says.

Because Prince had no known will, court proceedings will determine what will happen with his estate following the star's accidental overdose death on April 21.

Currently, Prince's sister and five half-siblings stand to be inherit Prince's estate, which is estimated to be worth at least $300 million.
