Duane, born two months after Prince, was the son of Vivian Nelson, née Howard, a woman Prince’s father John L. Nelson was married to before having met Prince’s mother. When Duane was born, John L. was already divorced from Vivian, although officially still living at the same address,. But he is not believed to have fathered the Duane, who was not named as one of John L. Nelson’s heirs at his passing in 2001. Duane passed away in 2011.
