A Minnesota judge dismissed claims from 29 would-be heirs to the estate of the late pop star Prince, further solidifying the inheritance claims of the performer's surviving siblings, court records released on Friday showed.

Carver County Judge Kevin Eide made the ruling on Thursday, adding that six people determined to be Prince's siblings, half-siblings or other relatives would have to undergo genetic testing.
