Singer Prince!

1. The birth of a son

Perhaps this is the most carefully guarded secret. In 1996, they had a child with Meite Garcia-Nelson (the musician's wife), a boy! Of course, the event could not go unnoticed by the yellow press ... The tabloids were only full of that about Prince's child. Immediately, rumors spread about serious diseases and even defects in the development of the baby ...

In the end, Prince admitted the birth of a child (largely due to pressure from the press). But soon information about the death of the baby was leaked to the masses ... According to the then popular publication, Boy Gregory (the boy's name) died on the eighth day of his life ... The reason was a rare hereditary mutation.

2. Miscarriage of the second child…

After that, Prince and Meite Garcia-Nelson tried to have a child, but this only led to a miscarriage ... Most likely, it was on this basis (the death of two children at once caused serious psychological trauma) that the couple soon divorced ...

Meite later said:

“It’s scary to lose your children… It’s incredibly painful – emotionally, physically, in general… It took about fifteen years for me to recover. For a long time I could not come to terms with this. The death of a child will either strengthen your relationship, or, on the contrary, crush it. In our case with Prince, it was precisely the second that happened ... "

3. Drug addiction

After Prince's death, rumors about the musician's opium addiction leaked to the masses ... And there were several confirmations of this at once:

The Star-Tribune said that Prince saw a therapist who helped the artist fight withdrawal symptoms for several, and unfortunately the last weeks of his life ...

Additionally, it was reported that Prince was booked with a Californian doctor who pledged to put an end to his dangerous addiction.

4. Sister drug addict

In her shocking interview, Prince's sister, Taika Nelson, frankly admitted that for many years she could not get rid of her drug addiction ... Moreover, drugs forced her into prostitution ...

Taika Nelson:

“A single mother with two kids in her arms and drug addiction… I traded myself for food, money… I even had to pawn the car donated by Prince – and all for the sake of these damn drugs…”

5. Crazy Sexual Adventures…

Prince and Charlene Friend have been in a relationship for a long time. But when it came to parting and property proceedings, Friend decided to make an unexpected statement for everyone:

“…Prince is a crazy sex maniac! He held wild parties, and set aside special rooms for this - with cages, chains, whips ... He watched what was happening in these rooms, and sometimes he himself took part! He could drive me away at any second, make me sleep on the floor or somewhere else ... I wanted to leave him, but he would not let go! He threatened to kill me if someone else got me…”

The musician himself rejected this statement. Considering that it was given in the course of property proceedings, there are doubts...

6. Financial mess

After the death of Prince, his family members were in disarray ... A will was not left, which seriously complicated the order of inheritance ... On top of that, it turned out that for many, many years, Prince's affairs were in a financial mess! In the end, not without the participation of the court, the circle of heirs narrowed - from 29 to 6 (only the artist's brothers and sisters remained, as well as his nieces, including his granddaughter) ...
