EXCLUSIVE: Purple Rain star Morris Day says Prince was surrounded by 'yes men'

https://www.dailymail.co....death.html

  • morris Day spoke on on his longtime friendship with Prince, in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV
  • The Time frontman claimed the pop legend was surrounded by 'yes men' who enabled his drug addiction that ultimately contributed to his death in 2016
  • 'He had a lot of yes men around him and nobody to say "hey, do you know what you're doing?"' Day, 61, said at the signing of his new memoir earlier this month
  • Day and Prince became friends as teenagers and started off as music allies, collaborating on projects and films, including Purple Rain in 1984
  • After a musical rivalry spawned from tour fighting and jealousy, the pair fell out and Day went solo
  • He revealed they finally reconciled their years-long feud two months before Prince's death when he invited him to perform at a private party at his home
  • 'We talked after the show, and he said I love you and he gave me a hug,' Day said

I love and respect Morris, i truly do. With that, a lot of different things have been going through my head, quotes and such, too much that I'll never go into detail here but truth, per his book Morris didn't seem to come around P at all unless money was involved. Im not sure how it works to let people you pay tell you what to do all the time but i don't imagine that is a very healthy relationship in itself.

I think that was early, during the 80s

There's a thread for Day's book, although I'm not sure why it wasn't made into a sticky yet. https://prince.org/msg/5/460826

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.
