Minneapolis, Prince Estate Denies Plan to Sell Paisley Park
The administrator of Prince’s estate has denied reports that they plan to sell the singer’s famous Paisley Park studio, the singer’s home and recording complex.
The statement came one day after the administrator had asked a judge for permission to sell nearly 20 properties owned by Prince, worth an estimated $28 million, the Associated Press reported.
On Saturday, Bremer Trust, which manages Prince’s estate, issued a brief statement saying: “Bremer Trust, the special administrator for the Prince Rogers Nelson estate, has no plans to sell either Paisley Park or the property referred to as the ‘Purple Rain’ house. There is no additional information to share on this topic.”
Prince, whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson, was found dead at his Paisley Park mansion outside Minneapolis on April 21, at the age of 57. The house appeared in Prince’s 1984 movie and there he recorded nearly 30 albums. According to Prince’s first manager, Owen Husney, the singer was planning to turn Paisley Park into a Graceland-style public space for fans in the months leading up to his death.
