George Lopez Gives Prince’s Family $20K


Reposted from Contact Music (here)

Actor/comedian George Lopez has reportedly donated $20,000 (£13,690) to members of Prince’s family following the singer’s death last month (Apr16).

The Purple Rain icon passed away at his Paisley Park studios compound in Minnesota without leaving a will, and last week (29Apr16), a judge approved a request by the singer’s sister, Tyka Nelson, to open a probate case, after confirming the superstar had failed to leave instructions regarding his final wishes.

The judge also agreed to appoint executives at the Bremer Trust, National Association, to serve as the official administrators of Prince’s estate for up to six months, until a personal representative could take over the responsibility.

As per state law, the hitmaker’s assets, which reported is valued at less than $150 million (£102.7 million), will be split evenly between his heirs, who have been listed as Tyka, Alfred Jackson, John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, and Omarr Baker.

According to the outlet, the singer’s assets have been frozen until a judge decides how much the administrator can give the family for living expenses.

Lopez, who was reportedly close with Prince, has now stepped forward to help the family during the difficult transition. The donation was reportedly made anonymously.
