Chaska - A Minnesota judge has scheduled a closed hearing next week to deal with a dispute between potential heirs and the trust company overseeing the estate of the late rock superstar Prince.

The order from Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide says the trust company and "various presumed heirs" have been unable to agree on unspecified "confidential business agreements".

His order, filed on Thursday, doesn't say what the dispute is about or which potential heirs are involved.

The judge has kept many matters involving the estate's business dealings confidential.
