Confused about Matye and Prince

Ok, I am am conflicted about their relationship--at least her version of it. I wanted to believe they had a purity and that circumstances as Matye states resulted in their separation.

Yesterday I saw a TMZ interview a brief on her that someone asked her does prince cook, and she respond, I was married to him no he never made me pancakes. (this was back when Prince was with us) He cooked eggs. Then in an interview promoting her book she said when first slept together the next morning he made her pancakes.

She also said she never wrote a book when he was with us, but wanted to pen one and that he would be okay with it. And yet there were some posts on another forum who reference some guy named Dave that is her friend and they were trying to get a book published or get a deal and were stopped. This forum also said something about Dave actively trying to get Matye back in to favor with Prince and also would mention to anyone who would listen did you know that Matye was married to Prince. She also was selling her stuff with Prince's first manager named Owen or something and Prince made a call to him about stopping the auction but Matye kept going. Her stuff didn't sell. One item did. anyways, It feels really icky and I am seeing her (if this is all true), in a different light and question her real intention for writing the book. Even when Vanity (Denise) passed away, Prince made a public statement about her and said he and Denise really loved each other. Denise even wrote a book and mentioned that Prince was the love her life. (apparently a lot of women believe that) But she really wasn't public hawking, selling etc about their relationship.

I am now thinking that Prince did move on from Matye she was to young and not mature thus his line in one of his songs I still love you but don't trust you anymore. I think he did move on and had been growing and changing as a person. I don't think Matye ever has moved on or grown. She tries to but then comes back to her life with Prince. Prince had many faults and I think Matye did too and I don't believe (after looking at all of this) that he would have stayed with her primarly because he was always about creating and moving, growing, spirituality, philanthropy etc.

I go in and out of not breathing on account of our sexy lil purple glittery P, depending on which day of the week it is...Grief is a very individual thing...

Well since you said that...LOL, I wasn't going to say anything because I know how people respond, but today I was looking at a google search of pictures and my breath just quickened and I was like, "man, he can't be dead". Some days it just feels weird to believe that truth, and today was one of those days. And then I start thinking, "something is wrong with you, it's been over a year, it's not like you knew him and he was family, get over it already".

if i were to ever write down my life story,
i could truly say with all the fame and glory,
i was just a piece of clay in need of the potter’s hand,
’cause when you whispered in my ear
the words i so now understand

Did you read Maytes book? If not you should, it explains a lot. Seems a bit odd to me that you don't have knowledge of Vanity/Denise Mathews.


There should be no confusion about Mayte & Prince, they were husband & wife and had a child together.


Of course Prince moved on from Mayte, he did divorce her after all....

It may be beause this is a new fan of Prince (also could be a teenager). Anyways lets welcome them to the .org! So happy Prince is getting new fams! I have the Prince symbol on my car and I play his music in the carpool and girl you will be amazed at all the kids that ask questions about Prince! LOL! My kid rolls her eyes like here we go again....

I am glad u said that it's been hard because for few weeks I have been struggling and Ingo online and see his pics or go on prince.org. I didn't know the man personally but feel at times why did this happen? I too think why can't I get over it. I didn't want to share either because sometimes people responses can be harsh, but I have been reading up on Princes life. Thanks for sharing 🙂

wave Hello Rainbow1. Welcome to the Org. So happy to see Prince gaining new fans that are still sticking around. I just wanted to tell you that you can edit your post and fix Vanity's name. Everyone will have something to say about it if you leave it that way. Trust me... lol Also, just to give you an idea about Denise Matthews/Vanity's book - it was more about how she found God after an abusive childhood and through the midst of being caught up in her quest for fame and fortune. There's barely 8 short pages or so of her time with Prince, and she did not elaborate on their affair, so it really wasn't a book about her relationship with him. When she speaks of the love they shared, she briefly touches only on the surface. "I fell in love with this young genius and to the best of my knowledge he fell in love with me." I like that you not only mentioned what you read about Vanity saying Prince was the love of her life, but that you mentioned that Prince spoke out about how much he loved her as well. As a fan of Prince and Vanity, I thank you for that... touched
I just want you here, I just want you near me baby, cause I'm scared I'll cry, I love you like crazy.
~RIP~

Hi Rainbow!!

You said a lot for discussion. Calling Denise Destiny may have been a flip but how on point .

Great to see you and hear your thoughts.

You are correct in your assessment of the situation.

Agreed. ^ Rainbow, you seem to be well on your way. I think your approach in looking at who said what when Prince was alive is wise because he was very private. Also, there are ALWAYS two sides of a story and Prince is not here to give his.

I was overwhelmed too with all the information out there about Prince when he first transitioned. I was a "hits fan" prior and while I knew about Denise Matthews (Vanity) growing up in a time when she was with Prince, she only crossed my mind when I saw her preaching on TV in recent years. The first thing that gave me the biggest pause was how close his passing was to hers. The second was all he said in his tribute to her. I was shocked because the last time I paid any attention to Prince and his personal life in public, he was married to Mayte. When he passed, I had no idea he had divorced her, married someone else, and was even divorced from that wife. So I had a lot of catching up to do. Take your time.

Welcome....You will find that some orgers prefer one of Prince's women over the other. Some don't like Mayte, some don't like Vanity, some don't like Mani, his second wife. To the best of my knowledge, none of us knew these women. As someone suggested, read the book and don't take other orgers opinions over another. Keep an open mind. Read what you can. Form your own opinion and don't be swayed by other folks on the websites.

It has nothing to do with liking are not liking them. A few of these women contradict themselves so much it is unreal.

The poster said they formed their opinion due to interviews watched with M1. It appears an opinion of their own was formed and they shared it here.

(apparently a lot of women believe that) But she really wasn't public hawking, selling etc about their relationship.

I am now thinking that Prince did move on from Matye she was to young and not mature thus his line in one of his songs I still love you but don't trust you anymore. I think he did move on and had been growing and changing as a person. I don't think Matye ever has moved on or grown. She tries to but then comes back to her life with Prince. Prince had many faults and I think Matye did too and I don't believe (after looking at all of this) that he would have stayed with her primarly because he was always about creating and moving, growing, spirituality, philanthropy etc.




Read her book. But don't believe everything.

Mayte and her simple ass. SMH.

I think it's crazy that some folks on here always want to defend her, like whats so special about her? She's nit the only woman Prince married. She needs mental help and keep Prince's name out her mouth.

I am reading her book. Chapter 9 or 10, and so far, it´s respectful.
(yes, I know Prince would hate anything published about his personal life, but it isnt a tabloid type of book, so far)

Peace

Welcome....You will find that some orgers prefer one of Prince's women over the other. Some don't like Mayte, some don't like Vanity, some don't like Mani, his second wife. To the best of my knowledge, none of us knew these women. As someone suggested, read the book and don't take other orgers opinions over another. Keep an open mind. Read what you can. Form your own opinion and don't be swayed by other folks on the websites.

It has nothing to do with liking are not liking them. A few of these women contradict themselves so much it is unreal.

And that appears to be a big fn deal to some....SMH. Appears they all did.

The poster said they formed their opinion due to interviews watched with M1. It appears an opinion of their own was formed and they shared it here.

Doesn't hurt to expand their knowledge....and to continually be well informed.

Ok, I am am conflicted about their relationship--at least her version of it. I wanted to believe they had a purity and that circumstances as Matye states resulted in their separation.

Yesterday I saw a TMZ interview a brief on her that someone asked her does prince cook, and she respond, I was married to him no he never made me pancakes. (this was back when Prince was with us) He cooked eggs. Then in an interview promoting her book she said when first slept together the next morning he made her pancakes.

She also said she never wrote a book when he was with us, but wanted to pen one and that he would be okay with it. And yet there were some posts on another forum who reference some guy named Dave that is her friend and they were trying to get a book published or get a deal and were stopped. This forum also said something about Dave actively trying to get Matye back in to favor with Prince and also would mention to anyone who would listen did you know that Matye was married to Prince. She also was selling her stuff with Prince's first manager named Owen or something and Prince made a call to him about stopping the auction but Matye kept going. Her stuff didn't sell. One item did. anyways, It feels really icky and I am seeing her (if this is all true), in a different light and question her real intention for writing the book.

Prince said they (Denise and he) used to love each other. Prince had moved on as was his way...he didn't look back.

Hmmm. . . M1 and Prince did not maintain a friendship. Prince and Denise did which accounts for the very public mourning he did when she died. Their relationship clearly evolved over the years and for whatever reason a friendship emerged.

Take it ALL with a grain of salt as a few others have said and beware of stans. The Google Search on this site may also be helpful to you as well.

That's one of the biggest criticism's regarding mayte (exposing his personal life) but the things those same folks post here, the shit they dig up about him, the information they desperately seek and have been begging for since he passed is the biggest case of invading someone's privacy and personal life than anything she has done.
And to the OP was full of inaccurate accusations as well so get your facts straight for starters. Then ask yourself why you even care about his marriage.
