Mixed Blood Files $350K Claim Against Prince’s Estate

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — A Minneapolis theater has filed a nearly $350,000 claim against Prince’s estate over a canceled gala at his Paisley Park recording complex.

Mixed Blood Theatre was scheduled to hold a 40th anniversary gala at the suburban complex on May 14.

After Prince’s death in April from a drug overdose, organizers say they received assurances from Paisley Park staff that the gala could go on. But Mixed Blood canceled the party after the court-appointed administrator of Prince’s estate told the theater it could not hold the sold-out event at Paisley Park, where Prince died.

About 1,000 people were expected to attend.

Bremer Trust had said it believed it was necessary to close Paisley Park to outside events to protect Prince’s legacy. Paisley Park will open for public tours starting Oct. 6.
