To those who have shelled out the money and read the book, when she describes her meeting with Prince in 2006 does it in any way resemble the description she just talked about which supposedly took place in 2008? If so, maybe, she had a brain fart and confused the dates. If they are totally different accounts, I am not sure how some of you folks can just ignore the exclusion of this account in her book. the last time they talked is an important part of the story (especially if it is a love story). Not going into vivid detail is one thing especially if it was an argument. Leaving it out entirely is a big deal in a book framed as an account of the beginning, middle and end of this relationship. Either she is mixing up her date, lying in the book (by implying that 2006 was the last time they talked) or lying in the interview. But it does strain her credibility that she dropped this info now but didn't include at least a reference to it in the book.

I thought we were basically done discussing the book, so I loaned my copy out sad & can't go back and look. Maybe someone who has their copy will check it out.

I get the feeling if Mayte doesn't share every vowel of every word in every conversation folks aren't satisfied.



I mean damn, y'all now know when she lost her virginity, for cryin out loud.



Maybe she should've performed a taharah and provided a bedikot for their perusal.



Sheesh

Wouldnt you mention the last time you saw the love of your life? In your lifestory book?


I might, but I wouldn't feel obliged to nor would I necessarily share every syllable and moving part of that encounter.



If you would than maybe that speaks to who you are and doesn't reflect on Mayte at all.



BTW, in your other post you implied that I'm the police, folks who know me in real time would find that HILARIOUS...and NO, much like Mayte not sharing what you seem to be jonesin for from her personal story, I won't be sharing the whys and wherefores with you of why your implication about me is hilarious. Relax and breathe to get you through that seemingly insurmountable disappointment.



Disappointment builds character. Congrats on your journey to a better YOU.



Glad to be of help sending you on your way.

In 2006 after he divorced Manuella, she wrote him a long letter and he called her, they talked on the phone. This is very different to her sister taking her to a club in 2008 and her talking to Prince face to face for the last time.

They are two completely different accounts.

I have to agree here. That last meeting must have been burnt into her memory forever. The very last time she saw and spoke to the love of her life... I'm starting to see a kind of pattern here of confused dates, stories and the lot.
Anyway, I'm weary of everyone else, so why not her aswell? Lost all faith in purple related humanity...

I think it is clear from this video and from the book/recent interviews that she moved on a long time ago and dates/facts are beginning to get blurry for her. Or perhaps she left things out of the book because they didn't fit the flow of the book (?)

Thanks for sharing Latin.

I'm glad to know that she has Prince's family support, I just wished she was asked the questions that we really needed answers to.


You are very welcome PennyPurple.

Chapter 12 touches on her life after the divorce. She does divulge a few phone calls back and forth w/Prince during those years. She also reveals she wrote him in November of 2006 to advise him of her intent to forgive him to which he replied via a phone call to her. During this call, he invited her to be a guest at his Vegas show. She attended the show and he did, indeed (this was discussed, did he or didn't he, on the org years ago), seek her out to embrace her in a hug.

I also referenced the prologue and afterword. I could not find one statement by her in which she declares that 2006 was the last time she spoke to or encountered him (nor did I interpret any implication). Of course, I could be mistaken about a declaration (I am from time to time....wrong, that is). And, if anyone else finds info to the contrary, please point it out. So, my question is.....why is she now being attacked for not disclosing this meeting? How has she deceived the public by revealing it now? I believe she did mention (in the book, perhaps) that there were details about the relationship she would not divulge.

I honestly don't think it matters what she does or doesn't say in regard to her life with Prince....there are some who are going to critique every minute detail. As PP noted, she's damned if she does and damned if she doesn't.

I, for one, applaud her for releasing the book and for being brave enough to do so as I'm sure she knew that she was going to get alot of shade (and outright hatred!) thrown at her for doing so. As I stated previously in the original 'book' thread- she was also the mother of their child, suffered massive soul wrenching pain when their baby died and deserves some compassion from folks. She is NOT the devil incarnate.
