George Ian Boxill released an unofficial EP [Deliverance] on the anniversary of Prince’s death. However, his family is attempting to make sure that it is taken down because they have their own agenda for a reality show. The family wants to use it for the show themselves. The Prince estate also filed a lawsuit against Boxill, claiming that he was attempting profit off Prince’s death in recent times.
The following statements from the estate read:
“The Estate of Prince Rogers Nelson is aware that Mr. George Ian Boxill, in conjunction with Rogue Music Alliance, has issued a press release announcing an intent to distribute previously unreleased Prince master recordings and musical compositions. Like the other engineers that had the opportunity to work with Prince, Mr. Boxill signed an agreement, under which he agreed (1) all recordings that he worked on with Prince would remain Prince’s sole and exclusive property; (2) he would not use any recordings or property in any way whatsoever; and (3) he would return any such recordings or property to Prince immediately upon request. Mr. Boxill did not comply with his agreement. Instead, Mr. Boxill maintained copies of certain tracks, waited until after Prince’s tragic death, and is now attempting to release tracks without the authorization of the Estate and in violation of the agreement and applicable law.”
This whole situation is very out of character since Prince resided into a private life, yet his family is looking into reality tv based on the Nelson clan over a posthumous brand.
