The Santa Monica Observer claims that DNA testing proves Prince had a son in the recent article “SMObserved Finds Prince Rogers Nelson's Son--Uncanny Resemblance!”
A Minnesota probate judge overseeing the Prince estate recently threw out the claims of 29 people who said they were related to the late musician.
The newspaper reports that Sheila Steman was a musician who used to perform in many of the same clubs as Prince. The story indicates that her son, Anthony Steman, may have been the result of a relationship with Prince.
The judge overseeing the case ordered that the results of the genetic testing of Steman be kept under seal, which the paper believes is proof that Steman is Prince’s son.
However, there could be other reasons for the decision and it is unclear how a small California paper would have such inside knowledge of a Minnesota court case that has received lots of attention from much bigger media outlets.
While Anthony Steman might prove to be Prince’s son, at this point it should still be viewed as a rumor.
