Prince’s Lawyer Claims the Late Singer Owes Him $600K from 2006 Divorce
Prince owes his divorce lawyer $600,000 in legal fees.
According to TMZ, Cousins Law Firm filed a claim with his estate demanding $599,735.63. Patrick Cousins, from the law firm, said that he made an agreement with Prince that said that he did not have to pay him until all the little details of his divorce were settled.
Cousins said he wrapped up everything on April 1, which was 20 days before the singer’s sudden death. However, it is yet to be determined why it took 10 years to file the reported legal papers.
Prince was married to the Canadian philanthropist for five years before she filed for divorce. When he died, she paid him a heartfelt tribute. “Prince and I had a magical journey together and I loved him immensely,” she said in a statement to E!. “The world knew him as a musical genius – I knew him as a husband, friend and fierce philanthropist.”
