The court papers say that Bremer Trust, which has been named special administrator to the late superstar’s estate, was trying to obtain permission to recruit experts “to provide advice and counsel on how to manage public tours of the grounds, facilities and buildings located at Paisley Park.”

On Wednesday, June 8, the judge granted Bremer Trust authorization to hire entertainment industry and monetization experts to look at ways for the late singer’s estate to keep bringing in money.
