Prince’s ex-wife Mayte Garcia is opening up about her relationship with the late musical icon like never before in her new memoir, “The Most Beautiful: My Life With Prince.”

In excerpts from the book, Mayte, who was once Prince’s backup dancer, details the timeline of their relationship, which some would say is a bit odd.

The “Purple Rain” singer first met the former "Hollywood Exes" star at the age of 16, backstage at a concert in Germany after she submitted a tape of herself belly dancing to his music. Fast forward to a year later and the 17-year-old was living with Prince at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota. Prince ended up becoming her legal guardian, with the approval of her parents, and it allowed her to travel with him on tours.

At the age of 19, Prince advised Mayte to get on birth control. A week later, they had sex and Mayte lost her virginity.

“A week or so later I wrote in bold in my journal: February 9, 1993 – not a virgin. And I drew a winkey smiley face,” she wrote in the book. “Patience pays off,” she continued.

The former "Hollywood Divas" reality star also reflected on how controlling Prince was over her appearance and her weight. After packing on a few pounds, she said the late singer once had his accountant dock her pay after he caught her eating whipped cream.

“Twenty minutes later, the tour accountant came in and said, ‘I’m so sorry, I have to dock your pay this week.’”


In 1996, Prince (37) and Mayte (22) got married on Valentine’s Day. Eight months later, they welcomed their son, Amiir (aka Boy Gregory Nelson), who was born with Pfeiffer syndrome. A few days later and several operations, their son had passed away.

“I don’t think he ever got over it," she wrote."I don’t know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven’t.”

The couple eventually divorced in 2000.
