Remember, though, that many of the people around him were people he employed or mentored. Not people who would generally put the nope up when he got out of hand. And sometimes, Prince got out of hand. This isn't to say he was the most terrible person ever, just that sometimes he didn't know how to stop being a fool. And no, Mayte probably didn't know about the last years of his life. She's writing about her time with him, not the last years of his life.

To go balls-out hateration on her for that, to me, is silly and unlikely to get people not to read her book or whatever. When I first heard that she was writing a book? I was like, "Whatever, I don't even care." Now, because I've seen you and a few other people throwing such heinous fits about it? I'm curious as to what's so terrible in there that people have to break out the flamethrowers?

Sheila E. wrote a book, and I haven't gone near it, because I don't care.

I haven't read every interview from every person who had contact with him because I don't care.

But this? Because there's such a stink, NOW I want to know. Just sayin'.

If you want to read the book that is on you. Take responsibility for your actions. As far as his employees pleaty of people have spoken about his who did not work for him. Not ever person he encountered worked for him and many who did no longer were working for him in the last years. No reason for these people to say anything good.

As far as Mayte is concerned she is acting as if she has the last word which is not possible. She is documenting what was probaly the worst time in his life not thinking that people change and evolve. Not really giving him any credit at all.

No one is hating on her. She is in the public space and she is going to be judged just like anyone else. She is throwing shade at people in this book so she should expect some critisim and guess what all of the complaining on this board is not going to change anything. I looked at the Daily Mail today and the comments were really negative I bet there are no orgers making those comments. No right thinking person would not see the profit motive in what she is doing.

You read the bootleg copy, didn't you Laura?

Exactly my point. Hence Prince's face turning from pure love to horror. In those split seconds, he went from TOTALLY believing God had his back so to speak to... omg. This has just happened.

And that's what angers me concerning him becoming a JW. Nobody should enter a new faith in that state of mind. Nobody should "influence" a person that vulnearable.

I wonder if in later years Prince moved away from that influence in any way and if that's why he began again singing about sex and having a more natural and new wage approach, i.e. clothes, necklaces, sunglasses, mandalas, the stripped down P&M shows?

[Edited 3/20/17 7:22am]

He was not a JW at the time the baby was born but he was raised as a Christian. That test could cause a miscarriage and he was okay if the child was a dwarf. I am certain he would not have allowed an abortion. It almost sounds like she wanted to get rid of the child which I doubt was going to happen. At any rate she needs to let this go and I hope after all this dies down in a few months she will take her money and heal.

I don't think you understood what I said there, or perhaps I did not make a clear point...

I'm not bashing JW's, BUT...this is EXACTLY how they operate! I have a friend of mine who is a JW (she converted about 15 years ago). IMMIDIATELY after I lost my sister (I'm talking within 2 days), her and her hubby showed up on my front porch step at 8 a.m. dressed to the 9's trying to convert me.( Mind you, I was still crying my eyes out and in my bathrobe)

I respectfully told them that "this was NOT the time", but they INSISTED on entering my house. When I reiterated this scenario to her brother in law (whom I work with), he was furious, and told me "do NOT go to one of those meetings! They are playing on your sympathy and trying to "recruit you". smdh....Looking back, I'm astonished at the gall...she KNEW what kind of pain I was in! I'm guessing this is what Prince fell into sad

Howdy Precioux! About this impromptu meeting you had with the JW contingent, was there a collection plate involved in the conversion process? Lastly, did you inventory your belongings pursuant to the meeting?

Some until the link went dead. I think she should have left personal stuff out and feel she put in stuff to sell books not to heal. That is my opinion as I really think if she did not add certain things she would not have got the book deal.

I mean she did not know he had guardianship of her until recently why put that in the book it had no bearing on the realtionship in her mind because she was not aware of it. So what was the point. Now the media is making him out to be a pedophile even thought he did not put a hand on her until she was 19 years old. I cannot believe she did not know this would happen. I hope she is happy with herself.

Her friend claimed on that podcast that she was asked to do tell all books and refused because she did not want to diss/harm him. And that after Prince's death she could finally do the book in her own terms, meaning no dissing, because everyone would want to publish her book now.
That makes sense to me.

do you all not think a good friend of mayte is going to have bias towards her point of view and back up the motive and content of the book? It would have been a much more interesting and fair discussion if they had also included a good friend of prince...

But that is not going to happen because all of Prince's friends are telling tales and he may not have actually had any friends after he had no life after Mayte left. (LOL)

No, it is not central to anything. He was a Christian he was not going to abort that baby. Even if he knew all about the defect he still would have had a look of shock on his face. No amount of information in the world could prepare you for that.

Plenty of people do not have that test because it can cause a miscarriage. Do any of you have children? I would not care if my child had 3 heads. This insentiveness is just why she should not have gone into the details.

Let's not use the DM comments section as a reference for the general public, please! Not to pigeon-hole the entire DM readership, but the comments section on their site is almost always very negative, right-winged, antisocial, often racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. .. That's not a good ference!

I said only that it was central to the point MMJas made. Can MMJas be the judge of whether it was central to MMJas' point?

I have an 11-year-old son who has some strengths that help him. He is in the gifted classes at his school for math, English and other subjects. He also has a genetic condition that has caused him some difficulty and means that he will be very short. Most important of all, he is kind and caring. He has some "dysmorphic" features, and I do not shy away from describing his appearance. I love everything about him, but it doesn't mean I haven't been very afraid at times, as is true for all parents.

It is not the big deal she is making it out to be and it is not about taking advantage of anyone. Laser beams are not going to shoot out of anyone's eyes and you will not be hypnotized.

I firmly believed Prince came to Larry for some guidence. I do not believe for one minute a gun was placed to his head. He was serching for something and it would not have been any different if he went back to being a SDA which many of you should know is an offshoot of JWs.

I doubt anything Larry said was strange to him or foreign. From the very begining he was not equally yoaked with Mayte if she did not have faith. They were going to have problems. I am glad he did not walk away from having faith.

Laura, you've got an answer for everything, don't you?

And in my statement I iterated that this is what JW's DO! In your time of weakness, they pounce...and I'm sure this is the reason for P's conversion during his time of grief. It's pretty sick if you ask me, especially knowing I'm of a different faith that I am devoted to...and in response to your catty reply of "it's not all she's making it out to be", excuse me?! You were not there, so don't assume! Bottom line is that it was rude, disrespectful of MY FAITH, on top of being HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE! ..anywho..back on topic! blahblah

Well, this will all be over soon. In a few months the hoopla over her and this book will die down. She'll have earned a few million to take care of herself and daughter. She'll be over her 15 minutes, again, and she won't be able to capitalize off of Prince's name anymore. I look forward to this time.

Yep, until Robin or Cat or someone else releases another book.

I guess he wasn't "equally yoked" with Mani either, but didn't she convert? Is there any truth to JW playing a hand in any of the outcome of these two marriages he had?

I think you are wrong about Prince's conversion and you are projecting. He did not met Larry until a year after and I bet he wanted to be converted because he was seeking some answers in a very bad time in his life. Funny you think the JWs were exploiting him and not that first wife/widow of his.

I just want to raise a point about the purpose of an amniocentesis for diagnostic purposes. Yes, there is a risk of miscarriage. It is TINY. A second-trimester amnio has a risk factor of .6%, about half a percent. This is not to say the risk should not be considered or someone's worries are invalid - of course they are valid if that is how they feel. But the implication that miscarriage is a huge tremendous risk with an amnio is simply not true.

Amnios are basically fact-finding missions, and people will do different things with the facts. Just because someone has an amnio does not automatically mean that if the news is bad, they will terminate the pregnancy. Some may choose that route, and there are all sorts of reasons for that, and that is their right. But other people do it knowing that regardless of the outcome they will not terminate - they simply want to know what they are dealing with so they an prepare, mentally, emotionally, medically. I had genetic testing during 2 of my 3 pregnancies due to my age (nowadays you don't have to jump straight to an amnio, they can do a less-invasive blood screen first). I gladly accepted all the tests they offered so that if something did turn up, we could educate ourselves and line up the best medical team in plenty of time. (Thankfully, nothing atypical came up.) That could very well be what Mayte wanted to do, and her wishes were overruled. And you know, Prince's wishes were obviously valid, too.

But the fact remains that poor Amiir lived a short, brutal and painful life. As a parent myself, I can not fathom seeing my baby go through that. I have nothing but the deepest sympathy for Mayte and Prince for having walked through that fire, and I firmly believe Mayte has every right to tell her story in any way she sees fit. It is her story to tell now that Prince is gone.

(Edited for spelling)

EXACTLY HOW would the JW's have "exploited" M1, when P didn't convert until early 2000's, AFTER he divorced M1? You're not making sense...what's new?

He did already know Larry years earlier - as a musician - so they were already acquinaintedn if not friends. So we don't know when the conversion to JW started, but JW's do tend to preach and try to convert others.

I think you are wrong about Prince's conversion and you are projecting. He did not met Larry until a year after and I bet he wanted to be converted because he was seeking some answers in a very bad time in his life. Funny you think the JWs were exploiting him and not that first wife/widow of his.

He did already know Larry years earlier - as a musician - so they were already acquinaintedn if not friends. So we don't know when the conversion to JW started, but JW's do tend to preach and try to convert others.

Hi Heidi,

It has been stated that P converted sometime between 2001-2003 smile

Yep, until Robin or Cat or someone else releases another book.

No one classy is going to release a book.

Agree. I wouldn't have and won't read, but I don't dislike Mayte

I'm reposting this info because I think it might shed some light on why Mayte decided to write her book, and in Maytes defense, Prince almost deifies her when he talks about her impact on his life. The other interviews listed from 1996-2000 answers questions about the divorce/annulment religion etc. their answers are a bit different, but shed even more light about their relationship. Again, in Maytes defense he spoke very highly of her until May of 2000, then married Manuela in December of 2001? I could speculate about what happened and would probably be right, but if I were Mayte I would have a problem with Prince saying those things in public about me, then getting married a short time later? It was obvious there were three people in their relationship and I'm sure as it usually goes, after a while Mayte retaliated which was the finale straw. In my opinion, I don't feel this will be in the book due to for whatever reason, she befriended Manuela, wouldn't expose her to this due to her having a family now.

These are the interviews of interest:

Star Tribune-November 1996-Why he married her.
Ebony -January 1997-How they met.
Blues & Soul December 1999- (odd ending in last statement)
Pulse (Tower Records) February 2000-Spain, divorce/annulment etc.
Instyle May 2000
