https://sites.google.com/...nuary-1997 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

You are not saying anything that anyone could not figure out. I did not get to the part in the book about M2 but I am sure this is a women scorned getting her revenge. She found out he was going with M2 and retaliated Prince found out and went off the deep end.

He was an old school dude who felt it was okay for him to have more than one women and as long as the women were not seeing other men which is ridiculous.

I think he got butt hurt that she was going with another dude and decided to marry M2 and he made that decision in 2000. I know she said they still spent time together after he announced their annullment (which I still do not know how he got one of those)

I do not know why people do not see infidelity as the reason for burning up her stuff or knocking down his house and taking some of M2s things. I think his wives got tired of his running around and went out and tried to teach him a lesson.

Do not fool yourselves ladies and lot of guys who run around operate in this manner as long as they can do as they please everything is fine but as soon as the women gets with another dude all bets are off. I do not think this is just brothers but I know brothers and this is going to make the shit hit the fan.

I seriously doubt she goes into the detail about her infidelity if she does more power to her.

I asked would she have recoiled in horror if some other denomination had come knocking because others like the ones you just mentioned do.

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 guidance. I do not believe for one minute a gun was placed to his head. He was searching 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 yoked 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.

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?

No probaly not. I remember an rumor were someone said she really did not like those hollywood parties he would have when they were in L.A. She thought they were going to do charity work together and who knows he may have told her that but Musicology came along and he made big dollars. Started to get in that party life again.

I just think he made bad decisions when it came to women and the whole Hugh Hefner/Sister Wives nonsense would dome any relationship to failure.

I think I understood your point, MMJas. If so, Prince not being JW when the baby was born was central to it. You said:

"Nobody should enter a new faith in that state of mind. Nobody should "influence" a person that vulnearable."

I couldn't agree more about that sort of manipulation.

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.

That's not what I was referring to at all, Laura. I think Prince's face of terror came from a place where before he had felt certain God had his back, that's how strong his faith was. He did not expect his son to be so deformed because basically apparently the doctors had only prepared them for the dwarfism possibility. What baby Amir had was much, much worse.

I never said anything about an abortion. I have no idea if they would have gone down that road. Nobody does, besides them and probably immediate family. It's getting really tiring hearing people who did not know him personally state things as facts, especially intimate thoughts, decisions and opinions from a man not many knew intimately.

We have no way of knowing what his thoughts were. Not even Mayte, who was his wife for 10 years and endured that terrible pain and loss with him, went there. Not even she suggests he was thinking this or that, feeling this or that. She says he prayed before his birth. He never let his son alone throughout the whole week long ordeal, even sparing her the worst part.
And then, while he's down, perhaps feeling conflicted about his own faith, about his own choices, perhaps, someone comes along and... you know the rest.

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

Yes I know that ... I remember! But that is when he officially converted. He did interviews with Mayte, Larry and Chaka already in 1998, so clearly he and Larry were already close friends at that point. Look it up - it's on youTube. So who says they weren't already friends in late 1996, when Prince was grieving ? Who says Larry wasn't already a close friend at that point ?

Exactly. Give the man (Prince) some credit, I'm sure he did not convert before he was fully... can't seem to find the word in English...

If I had no way of knowing what his thoughts were then you have no way of knowing his thoughts when he saw his son. I do not believe he felt conflicted I believe he had faith to his dying day and many of his own comments out if own back up what I am saying. I know it is cool to knock religion but I believe he was always a Christian.

I'm still trying to wrap my noggin around why the marriage was annuled? Was it a religious annulment? I know some catholics who have engaged in the practice of such. Seems like right after the miscarriage, things went south quite quickly. 3 years of marriage- 2 unfortunate incidents, and wham! Annuled.

I disagree with you on a lot of things in this thread, Laura, but here is one instance where I totally agree with you. What the hell, why are people blaming Larry Graham for Prince being a JW? Seriously, either Prince was a grown ass man able to make decisions for himself or he wasn't. Pick one, people, pick one. That whole line of anti-reasoning is just... it's ridiculous.

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

I'm still trying to wrap my noggin around why the marriage was annuled? Was it a religious annulment? I know some catholics who have engaged in the practice of such. Seems like right after the miscarriage, things went south quite quickly. 3 years of marriage- 2 unfortunate incidents, and wham! Annuled.



Yeah. It was quick. The annulment could have been a legal (financial)matter and in consistent Prince patterns, he might like/love you, but half? I don't think so.

FYI "annulment" as a legal matter is pretty limited; it really only applies to situations where there was fraud involved (for example one spouse was still married to someone else).

Despite what Prince said, what he and Mayte did was "divorce."

Other thatn JW , Mormons and maybe the SDA, who elese is knocking on doors without being invited to do so?



I asked would she have recoiled in horror if some other denomination had come knocking because others like the ones you just mentioned do.



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.



I disagree with you on a lot of things in this thread, Laura, but here is one instance where I totally agree with you. What the hell, why are people blaming Larry Graham for Prince being a JW? Seriously, either Prince was a grown ass man able to make decisions for himself or he wasn't. Pick one, people, pick one. That whole line of anti-reasoning is just... it's ridiculous.



I agree. There were three people that had major personal influences in his life. His Father, Mayte and Larry. These are the only people in his own words,he deeply connected with, but with the latter two in time he seemed to wean himself spirituality off of.

I don't know anything about annulments,but why Prince & Mayte kept referring to it and then an actual divorce is strange.

I think we should be grateful that Mayte has taken the time to share her story in a book. I am definitely interested in reading another angle of Prince's life which may even help us understand him better. If the unglamorous details worry you, you still have a choice not to read the book. Most fans have been relentlessly asking for more details about Prince's passing and now they get some details about his life they are scandalized.

As for Mayte, I respect her and her choices. She comes accross as a very spontaneous, energetic, creative and inspiring lady, she's a fighter and whoever criticises her for not working speaks without knowing. She is a professional dance teacher (yes it counts!) used to work really hard whilst touring with Prince and has another job at heart which is to save dog's lives.

Her story could be an interesting one and I am definitely looking forward to reading it. Gossip publications have a tendency to publish the sensational first in order to sell more copies of their own magazine so the decision to publish this information first could have been led or at least influenced by the respective papers' editorial teams.

I wonder if she would receive the same criticism had she been a man writing a book about his celebrity ex-wife...

yes You wrote your thoughts beautifully, CherryMoon. I totally agree!

Don't die without knowing the cross.

Why is it so important to people that this book come out? Mayte had plenty of opportunities to tell her story when Prince was alive. If it's so important for her story to be told why did she wait until Prince was on the other side to release it?

Regardless of any opinions on her motivations for publishing the book now, it's very likely she was under a gag order or he would've set the lawyers on her if she tried to do so before.



Her friend claims Prince never stop her from releasing the book. So what is the real story on that?


My guess is the real story is as Dave told it.....Mayte was approached by an (unnamed) publisher to write a salacious tell all. She refused based on the fact that she would "never disrespect Prince and their relationship" (paraphrasing). Upon Prince's passing, she was approached again (different publisher) but she advised this new publisher the project would proceed only if she could tell her story in the way she deemed appropriate. He, Dave, also mentioned that she left out details of their time together. Maybe some info she felt would be too controversial or sensitive. Can't say for sure as I am not privy to her thoughts. Dave also mentioned that there was NEVER an NDA between Prince and Mayte. Very telling, imo, in that I feel Prince knew her heart and therefore, was not concerned that she would ever reveal derogatory facts (if any occurred) about their time together.



Why does these article from 24.06.2015 say shes writing a book if she never agreed to do one before Prince died?
