According to TMZ, Jay Z and Tyka Nelson and her husband Maurice Phillips met to discuss Jay Z purchasing Prince’s unreleased music for $40 million.
Jay Z tried to snap up all the unreleased Prince music that was unearthed at Paisley Park after the singer’s death … TMZ has learned.
We’ve learned Jay met with Prince’s sister, Tyka, and her husband, Maurice Phillips, several weeks ago. The mogul flew Tyka and Maurice to NYC to meet with him.
Sources close to Prince’s family tell us … Jay made an offer of around $40 million. We were unable to confirm the figure from Jay’s camp.
But there was a rub. Tyka may be Prince’s only full sibling, but she has to get sign-off from all the brothers and sisters, in addition to the trust that is managing the estate.
Word is that JZ is still in the running to get the overall deal for streaming rights … but it will be very expensive and there are some major players in the game.
Prince’s famous home and recording studio is now a shrine to the legendary singer … packed with tons of memorabilia from his career. These photos were taken inside Paisley Park and reveal some of what fans could be seeing in the near future.
The tours are set to start soon in October!
The bank that manages Prince’s estate — Bremer Trust — just announced the deal that puts the people who run Graceland in charge of public tours, which are set to begin in October.
Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, is reportedly on board with the Elvis plan, but sources close to the heirs tell TMZ not everyone in the family agrees.
We’re told the dissenting family members objected, in part, because Graceland Holdings has previously had financial problems. As it stands, team Elvis would get 50% of revenue generated by Paisley Park tours.
