    People dance to Prince music as a slide show flashes images of the artist above the stage during a memorial dance party at the First Avenue nightclub on April 21, 2016, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A court document shows the administrator of the singer's estate is seeking to sell some of his properties, as legal bills pile up into August.

    The legal bills for sorting out Prince's estate are already running into the millions.

    The special administrator overseeing Prince's estate is seeking permission to pay several law firms for work on the estate, with the biggest share — $1.9 million — going to the Stinson Leonard Street firm.

    Smaller amounts push the tab near $2 million, through June 30.

    Prince died on April 21 of a drug overdose. He was 57.

    Madonna joined the Women's March in Washington, DC. She spoke about love. "It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort. That justice would prevail and that good would win in the end," Madonna said. "Good did not win this election. But good will win in the end." (Published Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017)

    The special administrator, Bremer Trust, listed the fees in a document made public Monday. Bremer also asked the court handling Prince's estate to approve its own fees — but filed those amounts under seal.

    Messages with Bremer Trust's attorney weren't immediately returned.

    Another document shows Bremer is requesting permission to list some of Prince's properties for sale.
