Nearly 700 men and women from all over the United States have rushed to claim they are Prince’s long-lost half sibling, as the dash to get a share of his fortune that could top $1 billion heats up.

But only one looks likely to have an easy shot at proving she is actually a blood relative of the singer whose sudden April 21 death shocked the music world, the man who is leading the official hunt for relatives told Daily Mail in an exclusive interview.

‘Our phone has been ringing off the hook, I would say we have received between 600 and 700 calls,’ Harvey Morse said.

‘They run the gamut, literally from ‘We lived in the same area so we must be related’, to ‘We have pictures of Prince at our family reunion’.’
