California Wildfires: Prince’s Infamous Vault Will Stay In Hollywood, Despite Family’s Request To Move It

By NYDailyNews

Prince’s precious tunes will stay put despite his family’s request to protect them from the California wildfires.

A judge denied the Purple One’s siblings’ request to move the singer’s vault away from Hollywood as fires rage through the area, according to documents obtained The Blast.

Comercia Bank and Trust, which oversees the vault, said the Iron Mountain facility where it is held is further enough away that the request is unnecessary.

“Had the Nelsons contacted the Personal Representative prior to filing their petition, or even conducted a basic ‘Google’ search, they would have learned that the Hollywood Facility is not at any risk from wildfires,” lawyers wrote in a letter to the judge.

The closet fire in proximity to Iron Mountain is in Skirball, which is about eight miles away and 85% contained.

“The fire would need to pass through the UCLA campus, all of Beverly Hills and several miles of commercial areas in West Hollywood” before reaching the Hollywood vault,” lawyers for the estate wrote in the docs obtained by The Blast.

“The Court strongly condemns bringing this matter before the Court without adequate discussion between the parties and will sanction a party for doing so in the future,” the statement continued.

The vault houses unreleased music and archives. Prince’s siblings have been against the vault’s location since it was first moved to California from his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota.
