A DNA test has determined a Colorado prison inmate is not the son of the late music legend Prince, a source who was briefed on the test results told NBC News Wednesday.
Carlin Q. Williams, 39, through his attorney in early May claimed he was Prince’s son, which if true would have entitled him to at least part of Prince’s estimated $300 million estate. A second source also confirmed to NBC News that the test result was negative.
Williams’ mother, Marsha Henson, wrote in a court affidavit that she had unprotected sex with Prince, whose full name is Prince Rogers Nelson, in a Missouri hotel room in 1976.
Henson told The Associated Press in a brief interview that she does not believe the reported test results.
“I don’t believe that. I think they’re positive,” she said.
