News of that supposed museum to Prince in his legendary Paisley Park home might have been a little early. According to TMZ, the bank handling Prince‘s estate is seeking permission from Minnesota courts to sell his massive home/recording studio/concert venue/vault along with several other properties that the late singer owned.
According to the gossip website, the 60,000 sq. ft. home is appraised at $7 million which seems a bit low considering the connection to Prince and the premium prices that his belongings have demanded in the wake of his death. They also say that Prince’s family plans to fight any attempt to sell Paisley Park.
Via the story:
“Sources close to the family tell us Prince’s heirs will do everything they can to block the administrators from selling the legendary home and studio. We’re told they’d rather turn it into a museum.”
There is no word on whether the house from Purple Rain is among the houses to be sold, though Prince did purchase it in 2015. Prince’s death has lead to a lot of squabbling over properties, inheritances and artifacts. And with news like this, we don’t expect it to slow down any time in the near future.
