Prince's half-brother Alfred Jackson has been found dead aged 66, three years after inheriting a chunk of the late music legend's fortune.
Prince's half-brother Alfred Jackson has died.
Alfred was found dead at his home in Kansas City, Missouri, aged 66, three years after he inherited a chunk of the late music legend's £250 million fortune following his passing in 2016 aged 57.
He was found on Thursday morning (29.08.19) by his brother Bruce Jackson, who told TMZ he went to check on his sibling at around 10.30am but he was unresponsive.
Police are said to believe he died of natural causes, with no foul play suspected.
Alfred - who shared a mum, jazz singer Mattie Shaw, with Prince - spoke out about his half-brother's death just a week after his passing, describing him as a ''legend''.
Speaking in April 2016, he said: ''I miss my brother, because my brother was everything in the world to me.
''God bless Prince, God bless the world. He's a legend, he really is.''
He hadn't seen Prince in 15 years, but admitted he was ''so happy'' he was successful and used to watch him on TV.
Alfred previously said: ''He was so busy on the road because he had so many engagements with his music.
''So, he had to travel, all around the world. I always saw him on television, read the magazines, and said, 'There's my brother, Prince.' I was so happy he was making it for himself, I really was.''
Prince passed away from an accidental overdose of painkillers but didn't leave a will.
Just over a year after his death, a judge ruled his £250 million fortune would be divided between his sister and five half-siblings.
Ahead of their upcoming tour, and prior to the release of their long awaited album, Smoke Fairies played a great warm-up gig at Elsewhere in Margate.
