It has only been less than a month since Prince's death
, but it has been reported that an estimated 700 people are already claiming to be his half-sibling to have a stake in his inheritance. The iconic singer did not leave a known will behind.

,"They run the gamut, literally from 'We lived in the same area so we must be related', to 'We have pictures of Prince at our family reunion.'"
