Prince's Sister Wants To Unlock The Vault and Release It All
“We have to preserve everything. So as soon as we can release it, don’t worry, we sure will.”
Tyka Nelson, sister and newly-appointed heir to the Prince estate, wants the crack the vault for good and release it all.
A recent interview with The Sun found Nelson announcing her mission to the world in the fallout of a deal with Universal, who backed away from purchasing the vault — rumored to contain thousands of hours of unheard and unseen material — when parties could not agree as to precisely what should be released from the mythical chamber. Nelson went on to detail plans of opening a music school in north Minneapolis for underprivileged children, a design she claims her brother bestowed upon her prior to his untimely death. Whether she can summon the legal powers of her estate — no longer under the careful watch of longtime estate lawyer Londell McMillan — is an entirely different matter.
