Late last year came news that Prince’s estate and Comerica Bank & Trust, the company that is in charge of managing the artist’s assets, had to relocate millions of dollars worth of rare Prince material from Paisley Park in Minnesota to save the items from “mold and water damage.”
According to Comerica the move had to be done to make sure material from Prince’s vault (which included 30 unreleased Prince albums, worth around $200 million) was not destroyed because of the water damage.
