MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The administrator of Prince's estate says it is not planning to sell Paisley Park, one day after asking a judge for permission to offer several Prince properties for sale.

A court filing on Friday had included Paisley Park, Prince's home and recording complex, among a list of properties that could be sold.

But on Saturday, Bremer Trust issued a brief statement saying: "Bremer Trust, the special administrator for the Prince Rogers Nelson estate, has no plans to sell either Paisley Park or the property referred to as the 'Purple Rain' house." That Minneapolis house was filmed in Prince's 1984 movie.

Court papers filed by Bremer have asked a judge for permission to offer for sale nearly 20 properties owned by Prince, worth an estimated $28 million.
