A Virginia woman has come forward claiming she may be the daughter of Prince and has filed docs to be declared an official heir, which would give her a piece of his estate.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Snowe Melinda Saxman says she was born on October 4, 1975 in Norfolk, Virginia and was adopted two weeks later. She says her adoption was “closed” and she doesn’t know the identity of her birth parents. But, she believes there is “a reasonable possibility” that Prince is her father…and not just because she believes they look alike.
“Since I was young, many people have noted that I possess substantial physical, temperamental and aspirational similarities to Prince. I have a close resemblance to Prince,” Saxman says in the docs. “I consider myself very artsy and my personality has been described as flamboyant, natural-born star and performer made for the stage. I sing, dance, write music, and have taught myself to play instruments. I created many dances during high school and performed on numerous occasions as a child and young adult.”
Saxman claims she submitted her DNA to an online site and claims “there were numerous matches with many relatives on Prince’s family tree.” She claims to have matched with Prince’s mom and dad, his half-brother Duane, and his ex-wife, Mayte Garcia.
By saying she matched with Garcia, Saxman appears to suggest that she is the child of Prince and Mayte, which would mean that Mayte gave birth to Sasman at age 2.
