Interesting. At least we know Sheila has as much clue as us about what happened and that she still feels angry. I also found the part revealing about walking through PP and wanting her property back but having to fill out forms to prove stuff was hers, Maybe this was the real reason she fell out with the Estate?

This was a good interview. I wonder why she's not there this weekend. Maybe she's just not ready to go back yet. Everyone mourns differently. I don't think she has a problem with the family. She said she had spoken to Tyka, Omar, and President. I know Omar was on her cruise.

Interesting that she had no clue about his addiction. She toured with him in Europe in 2010, a year in which Prince admitted to having some 'health issues'.
The wooh is on the one!

She is not the only one saying this. Dozens of people are saying it. We have not had one person come out and say he was high or on something. After a year you would think you would have more drug stories but nothing.

This is the reason I do not think he was abusing these meds for a long period of time.

She did talk about the pain he was in and such.

But it is easy for someone like Prince to hide things if he wants it hidden. He had Kirk working for him, another Yes man. Sheila E wasn't a yes man. So there is no way he would have exposed himself to her and to certain others.

.

For all we know maybe that is the reason he removed her from that show, maybe he thought she saw/knew something. By the time the tour was heading to Italy Prince sent her home.

You cannot hide being high from everybody. We have no idea when he started abusing these pills.

Yep, she did say in interviews last year that he was taking pain pills, and she talked about the shoes and jumping off the risers.

the 2010 Welcome 2 Europe leg of the tour Sheila was only there for a the 1st half before Prince removed her for whatever reason

I wonder if whatever issues she had with the estate or Graceland left a bad taste in her mouth and she's chosen to stay away. When The Revolution played First Ave last year I thought it was odd that Sheila made no reference to it on social media. Is there some friction between her and the band?

She said in the interview her issues are with the estate because she has musical instruments in Paisley Park that she is saying that asked her to prove were hers. She feels the estate managers are moving to fast.

doubt it, that is First Avenue not Paisley Park

but Sheila doesn't usually make mention of other people on her page anyway

then the tour headed to 'Welcome 2' Australia (where the Time asked to open for Prince)

then Prince headed back to the States(Welcome 2 America) to the Bay area where Sheila E and the E

She did perform with him in 2011
Family were to open for Prince and then at the last minute he removed them and added Larry Graham.
Then when he was headed to Chicago(?) he called for Sheila and she declined(that is when he performed Old Friends 4 Sale(the 2nd version)

Prince played in Europe in the summer and fall of 2010 but I'm not sure if it was referred to as Welcome 2 Europe or not. The Welcome 2 America tour started in December of 2010 and finished in May of 2011. Prince played again in Europe in the summer of 2011, played Canada in the fall of 2011. The Welcome 2 Australia tour happened in May of 2012. Welcome 2 Chicago was a one off thing in September of 2012. I'm fairly certain Sheila was at some of the December Welcome 2 America shows as well as some of the shows in Oakland and at The Forum in LA. I don't think she was around for any of the summer 2011 shows in Europe and obviously not around for any shows in 2012 and beyond.

Performing on tour with him doesn't mean she hung out with him or even saw him much offstage. They were probably even in different hotels.

Yeah it was in 2011 Welcome 2 America on the West coast and that is where Prince removed the Efamily band and replaced them with Larry Graham, so by the time he was heading East she wasn't there. Maybe it was the Welcome 2 Chicago show where he called for her and she said she couldn't.

I just wish people would learn the difference between getting high and pain management. If the pain is being managed effectively and appropriately, the person will appear normal because that is how they feel. They will not be out-of-it, stoned, or appear to be drugged.

The whole point of pain management (or ANY medication, really) is to be able to function normally.



I wish the world would understand this.

Many of us do understand it and we do not believe he was addicted to pain pills for 40 years. Something went sideways in later years and that is really the mystery.

I know all about that, I think the person I was replying to is talking about more recent years. Like on the Welcome 2 Europe tour or some of the other shows.
She was in a (eros)relationship with Prince in the 80s only.

Some evidence that she was hanging around up and til 91. Rumors about them in the 2000s but she is not going to tell anything.

Yeah it isn't rumors, but they weren't dating by then90s
Robin Power and the Uptown Dames remember Sheila E coming to Paisley Park after her surgeries and they were rehearsing.
Then I think there was some kind of fall out with Gilbert Prince Sheila in 1991
