Brianna Nelson and Jeannine Halloran, on behalf of her minor daughter, have filed estate claims in Carver County District Court. Late Monday, they filed an objection to a judge's order giving a special administrator the power to require physical testing of such claims.

Nelson says her father was Prince's half brother, Duane Nelson Sr., making her Prince's niece. Halloran says her minor daughter, V.N., was Duane Nelson's granddaughter, making her Prince's grandniece.

Their joint filing says they have offered proof of their relationships to Duane Nelson and of Duane Nelson's relationship to Prince, and that this satisfies Minnesota law for presumption of paternity.
