Sheila E - The many other females he entertained on the regular.

Like any other relationship, Prince and Sheila E. faced numerous ups and downs over the years. But as time passed, they began to grow apart due to creative differences and the many other females he entertained on the regular. Then, she said Prince ultimately did something that changed everything. Despite their romantic relationship, Prince reportedly had no reservations about reminding Sheila who the boss was. In fact, there was one incident where Sheila finally had enough.

In her memoir, she revealed Prince refused to let her fly to her grandmother’s funeral, citing tour obligations. “He was my boss, he reminded me. He signed the paychecks,” she wrote. Shortly after, Sheila and Prince finally went their separate ways.

I will admit that's pretty cold about her Grandmother's funeral. Prince wasn't a saint. I heard they had a falling out on the W2A tour in San Jose when Sheila E's family was supposed to open for Prince and he bumped them for Larry Graham.

Damn. That's harsh. He could be a cold-hearted MF. Something I tend to forget once in awhile as he was an equally warm, generous benefactor. He was such a contradiction depending upon what? Who you were? What day of the week it was?

That's an interesting anecdote, I wonder what year it was. Shelby J. shares a complete opposite story about when she found out her father was near the end and she left one of the W2A shows in NYC to fly down and be with him.

https://www.facebook.com/...2220829054
Once I got on the plane, I was like..."Oh Lord...I need to call Prince or @MorrisHayes ...or somebody & tell them I won't be at rehearsal today & I'm leaving NYC to go be with my Daddy". I hadn't gotten permission to just BOUNCE or Anything....

I left a message at P's hotel...& hoped for the best. Right before I had to cut off my phone for take off...it rings...& It's my brother Prince <3 He had gotten my message & he could hear the fear & panic in my voice. Before I could even start explaining & talking he said.."Shelby, I know what's going on...Go Be with Your Father, your Family needs U Right Now and U need them" <3 He didn't mention rehearsals, Music, or ANYTHING!! His ONLY concern was that I get home asap, that I called him when I got there & if I need ANYTHING AT ALL...HE HAD ME! smile <3 That's Luv.

-/See Shelby was not going with him. You never mix business with pleasure. In her book she said he told her I'm no way of replacing her so she could not go. This was doing the Lovesexy tour in Europe. In her book she said this was the beginning of the end of their romantic relationship. She was tired of his running around with other women they tried living together and that did not work so they knew they were not going to make it as a couple.

Ah so this was back in the late 80s not 2011. Again anytime I hear stories I always want to know the year/decade as it matters. Not suggesting P was a saint the last 15 years or so of his life but he was much different than the guy from the 90s and prior.

-By everyone's account he settled down. Even Sheila E said when she went back to working in the 2000's as just friends things were much better. They were better as friends than lovers. I don't care what anyone as say that fact that he stated friends with so many of his lady friends tells you a lot about him.

But it is does not appear they were getting anymore money out of him some went to be married like Elisa. My point is if he was an ass to these women they would not have wanted to stay friends with him and they would be trashing him right now.

Not a peep from her on social media. It's like she and her husband completely vanished.

No, they were not romantic/sexual. Cat admitted that herself. She also said, because of this time period Sheila E was very jealous, and would treated her weird at times. I believe the floor band interaction Cat had with Prince had a lot to do with it. Sheila E used to have that to a degree like on the PR & Parade shows, but once she decided to just be the drummer, she didn't have that anymore.

Now bringing her up did gauge my memory of another. Devin Devasquez, Cat was friends with who was an on/off playmate 2 Prince. Even though she said she had a 'secret 6 month relationship' in 1985, they continued to be friends. She was @ the party at Princes house were Cat met Prince, (Miles Davis, Eric Leeds, John Nelson etc) were there. I think she started dating 'the Father' after Prince.

falloff Okay. You keep believing that....but Cat and Prince were ALL IN. And, it drove Sheila MAD.

You've got one thing right, though: Cat reportedly met Prince at this party. They went out to a club. She danced with him, Cat-scatting and carrying on all over him. And the rest is history. Next thing you know, Cat is on the tour, BTW, his first dancer EVER. She's traveling around the world with him. She pretty much took over his show for TWO tours. P couldn't keep his hands off her. You're doggone right, Sheila was jealous, and rightfully so.

Well I'm not going to rehash this much further. She said it, why would she deny it. Cat said there was nothing between them like that.


Yes, in a way his first official dancer(female) but he did have dancers before... (Wally Gregory Jerome) he fired Jerome for working with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and then came into contact with Cat.

But in an unofficial way he had dancers during the Parade era (Kiss video:Monique Manning and in the UTCM movie and Girls & Boys video:Alexa Fioroni )

Like Cat said Sheila had no reason to be jealous of her.

Maybe she feels guilty to admit to any sexual interaction with P because she did have a boyfriend at the time, i was facebook friends with cat and she most def said there was some knooky going on, she's not telling the truth...shrugs

Robin Powers said in the Joan Rivers interview she did, when asked, that she was NOT sleeping with Prince, when, in reality, she was. I asked her about her saying she wasn't and she said Prince told her to be discreet. So, maybe Cat was and didn't want to say...
