KANSAS CITY, MO. (THECOUNT) — The half brother of musician Prince, Alfred Jackson, was found dead this morning in his Kansas City home. He was 66.

His death comes three years after he inherited much of the late music icon’s fortune following his tragic accidental overdose.


Alfred and Prince – whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson – shared the same mum, jazz singer Mattie Shaw.

A cause of death has not been revealed, although Alfred appeared to have died in his sleep and police don’t suspect foul-play, TMZ reported.

His body was found at around 10:30 am local time on Thursday by his half-brother Bruce Jackson, who shares no relation to Prince.
