A woman claims she married Prince before his death and is now hoping to cash in on his multi-million dollar estate.
Claire Elisabeth Elliott, 50, filed a request for control of Prince's estate, claiming she has a marriage certificate proving the two were married when the pop icon died of an accidental overdose on April 21.
In her filing, the California native is calling for the court to hand over control from Bremer Trust — which currently monitors the star's estate — as she is his "sole heir."...MORE
Elliot did not however include a copy of the marriage certificate in her court request and there is reportedly no evidence of one in Minnesota court, according to TMZ.
She wrote in the affidavit that she was secretly married to Prince in Las Vegas in 2002 by a rabbi named Ross Dreiblatt, who also allegedly drew up a “secret will” for the singer.
“Because the CIA and other agencies consider both documents to be Top Secret, Ross cannot publicly release either document without being properly served a subpoena,” the document reads.
On her Facebook page, Elliot posted a TMZ report about her marriage and responded to a comment from a user who questioned the pair's nuptials. "We didn't walk down the aisle, we just stood at the altar and got married," she wrote.
Her page also suggests that she lives in Georgia and is married to a man named Dean. On Monday, her hubby gifted her with a ring, which she wrote was her third one.

Elliott: I believe the date was Jan. 14, 2002, when I was in Las Vegas. It was during the time when he was already married to his second wife. But when you’re in the CIA you can get married to more than one person at the same time. A lot of people don’t know that. And CIA law trumps American law, apparently.
Linares: So you were in the CIA? At what age were you in the CIA.
Elliott: I was born into the CIA. I am a victim of the CIA. My parents were involved in the CIA, and I became their victim....
