A guy named Carlin Q. Williams is claiming that he is Prince’s biological son and has asked for a paternity test to be taken to prove it.

The 39-year-old said that his mum, Marsha Henson, hooked up with Prince after they met at the Crown Center Hotel, Missouri back in 1976. After the pair met up, they apparently went back to his room where they drank wine and got it on.
This news comes after many, many (up to 700) people have come out of the woodwork claiming to be related to Prince, ever since it got found out that his $300 million fortune was up for grabs. Obviously this guy is looking to get a chunk of the dosh but really, can you blame him? If the test results come back saying Prince is his dad, then surely he deserves some retribution for not having a father figure his whole life.
Still, according to Harvey Morse, of Morse Genealogical Services, it has been a big job sifting through all of the claims:
Our phone has been ringing off the hook. I would say we have received between 600 and 700 calls.
They run the gamut, literally from ‘We live in the same area so we must be related’, to ‘We have pictures of Prince at our family reunion.’
But I like official documents. Birth, marriage, death, divorce certificates, census records, that sort of thing – papers that were drawn up without any thought of this eventuality.
It has been reported that if the paternity test comes back as positive, then it is very likely that he will get a cut of the cash. As said, you can’t blame him.
It’s just a bit sad that Prince’s death has been whittled down to a bunch of people quibbling over his fortune and fame. This guy shouldn’t be remembered for how much money he’s worth, but for his music, dance moves and the fact that he was the ultimate G. R.I.P. dude.
