LOS ANGELES: Late pop icon Prince's alleged love child Carlin Q. Williams is moving forward to fight for his $300 million estate.

Williams, who is currently in prison, filed new documents on Monday, urging a court to move along the process of proving his blood relation to the late musician, reports

"Williams submits that DNA testing of all potential heirs should be a high and urgent priority by the Special Administrator, and this task should not be displaced by ancillary actions that may permit a final disposition of intellectual property assets now owned by the estate," read the documents.

According to the suit, the Special Administrator of the estate filed documents asking for the court to authorise the use of experts to "advise and assist the Special Administrator in the management and preservation of the wide-ranging intellectual property of the Estate".

However, Williams believes that the possible heirs should be intimately involved with all happenings surrounding Prince's estate.

"Williams submits the hiring and retention of a 'monetisation' expert in the immediate future by Bremer Trust is premature and fails to consider the rightful involvement and input in such decisions by the deceased's lawful heirs, and exceeds the scope of appointment made by the court in this proceeding," read the objection.
