CHASKA — An attorney who handled Prince’s divorce from his second wife a decade ago has asked a Minnesota judge for $600,000 in what he says are unpaid legal bills from the rock superstar, who died of an accidental drug overdose nearly a year ago.

At a hearing Friday, an attorney for the trust company managing Prince’s estate pointed out that Patrick Cousins’ claim had already been rejected, and said that Cousins had missed a legal deadline for challenging that decision.

But Cousins, a West Palm Beach, Florida, attorney who handled Prince’s 2007 divorce from Manuela Testolini, says he met all the requirements and is entitled to collect.
