There's a man claiming to be Prince's illegitimate son -- his name is Carlin Q. Williams and he's from Kansas City, MO. Interestingly enough, Williams is currently in federal prison for gun possession.

Prince did not leave a last will at the time of his death, which happened at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota on April 21. The lack of a will has caused quite a commotion with his known siblings and half siblings.

CBS News is reporting that Williams, who is the first to come forward with a claim like this, is asking for a DNA test and has filed his paternity claim in Carver County, Minnesota, and is alleging that he's the "sole surviving legal heir." CBS is also reporting that the documents say Williams' mother, Marsha Henson, said in a statement she had unprotected sex with the late singer at a hotel in Kansas City back in July 1976.

On Friday, a Minnesota judge authorized the use of Prince’s blood, which was extracted by the medical examiner shortly after his death, for DNA testing to determine "parentage issues."

Prince had fathered one known child, named Boy Gregory Nelson, who died a week after he was born to a rare genetic disorder Pfeiffer syndrome. The iconic singer had no other known offspring.
