Interesting. At least we know Sheila has as much clue as us about what happened and that she still feels angry. I also found the part revealing about walking through PP and wanting her property back but having to fill out forms to prove stuff was hers, Maybe this was the real reason she fell out with the Estate?

This was a good interview. I wonder why she's not there this weekend. Maybe she's just not ready to go back yet. Everyone mourns differently. I don't think she has a problem with the family. She said she had spoken to Tyka, Omar, and President. I know Omar was on her cruise.

Interesting that she had no clue about his addiction. She toured with him in Europe in 2010, a year in which Prince admitted to having some 'health issues'.
The wooh is on the one!

She is not the only one saying this. Dozens of people are saying it. We have not had one person come out and say he was high or on something. After a year you would think you would have more drug stories but nothing.

This is the reason I do not think he was abusing these meds for a long period of time.

She did talk about the pain he was in and such.

But it is easy for someone like Prince to hide things if he wants it hidden. He had Kirk working for him, another Yes man. Sheila E wasn't a yes man. So there is no way he would have exposed himself to her and to certain others.

.

For all we know maybe that is the reason he removed her from that show, maybe he thought she saw/knew something. By the time the tour was heading to Italy Prince sent her home.

You cannot hide being high from everybody. We have no idea when he started abusing these pills.

Yep, she did say in interviews last year that he was taking pain pills, and she talked about the shoes and jumping off the risers.

the 2010 Welcome 2 Europe leg of the tour Sheila was only there for a the 1st half before Prince removed her for whatever reason

I wonder if whatever issues she had with the estate or Graceland left a bad taste in her mouth and she's chosen to stay away. When The Revolution played First Ave last year I thought it was odd that Sheila made no reference to it on social media. Is there some friction between her and the band?

She said in the interview her issues are with the estate because she has musical instruments in Paisley Park that she is saying that asked her to prove were hers. She feels the estate managers are moving to fast.

doubt it, that is First Avenue not Paisley Park

but Sheila doesn't usually make mention of other people on her page anyway

No, she joined(with her keyboardist Casandra) for the Welcome 2 Europe tour, right before they headed south to Italy she was put on a plane 2 the USA

then the tour headed to 'Welcome 2' Australia (where the Time asked to open for Prince)

then Prince headed back to the States(Welcome 2 America) to the Bay area where Sheila E and the E

She did perform with him in 2011
Family were to open for Prince and then at the last minute he removed them and added Larry Graham.
Then when he was headed to Chicago(?) he called for Sheila and she declined(that is when he performed Old Friends 4 Sale(the 2nd version)
