Legendary US singer Prince died from an accidental drug overdose in April 2016 without leaving behind a will. The legal bills for sorting out his estate have nearly touched US $2 million, the special administrators have told the court.

The administrator overseeing the affairs of the singer is seeking permission from the courts to pay several law firms for work, including a huge $1.9 million for just one company, the Stinson Leonard Street firm, reported Female First.

Smaller amounts to various other lawyers add up to almost $100,000, with the figures submitted correct up until June 30.

The administrators, Bremer Trust, have also asked the court to approve their own fees, but those amounts were filed under seal, meaning they are not made available publicly.
