I just saw on Facebook. I didn't get a chance to read yet. For me it is really hard to know what to believe. They BOTH could be telling the truth from their experience for all we know.

I think it's great that she defends him. And a quick look over to LSA shows us that Mayte just can't win. Like she's the only one right now who defends him against These Claims (Not even Wendy said Something) but she still gets the Heat...

Oh so she did! Apologies, my bad, I haven't listened to more than a minute or two of the interviews with her because she's clearly out of her mind and it's just uncomfortable.

Why is anyone even giving this nutjob the time of day? Clearly she should be in a mental institution.

Jill Jones was the only one I know who said he did something to him.
I've never heard any story of Prince beating up Wendy.

In the police interview, O’Connor also seemed to accuse Prince of violence toward Wendy Melvoin, who played guitar in his backing band the Revolution. “He had two women in the band, Wendy and Lisa,” she said. “Wendy was in the hospital for six weeks after he beat the shit out of her.”

I found it. Seems like she did. It's from the Spin article

That is absolutely absurd.Sinead should be ashamed of herself,going around spreading those vicious lies.Wendy should sue her,or at least set the record straight.

It seems likely that they had a bad meeting way back when where Prince used some mock-intimidation tactics that she took the wrong way. Clearly it got blown up in her head and went from "threaten me with physical violence" and be "amused" by her reaction (seems quite possible to me, Prince could be an asshole when he was around his boys, plus he was a tiny man, maybe he never thought anyone could find him threatening) to a full blown punch up where she had to escape out of a window at 4 in the morning (ehhh, no).

The interview with the Police took place in 2016 when she was very sick and there's been a whole saga with Dr. Phil and hospital visits and name changes and suicide attempts etc. etc. since then, I wouldn't take a word of it as trustworthy.

There is no proof this ever happened. I never heard of it, I think we might have it it was something that extreme. And I doubt Prince & Wendy would have continued as friends throught his life.

This isn't new, news this came out about 2 years ago. I believe Arsenio was even suing O'Connor. So why is Mayte just now coming out to hold up for Prince?


Knowing what we know now, Mayte said about the wine incident that he took too much aspirin with wine and had to be taken to the hospital. Prince's pills were found in aspirin bottles, which leads me to believe that it wasn't aspirin he took.


And Mayte even said in her book that her pain pills would come up missing.

Wendy could come out and confirm or deny and she has done neither.....she hasn't said that it wasn't true.

Maybe she didn't hear it two years ago, the Interview was two Weeks after Prince died, I can imagine that Mayte probably missed it Back then. I didn't know it was old news, because there we're so many news back then that I missed that one. I mean, at least she said Something, while others keep their mouths shut

I didn't say that it happened, but Sinead claimed it and Wendy didn't say anything. I could say, maybe two years ago that Wendy didn't hear of it because it was Just two weeks after Prince passed and maybe she was still grieving, but it Hit the News again and now she could say something

I doubt she will say anything unless directly asked about it. Prince didn't answer to gossip nor do the people around him it seems.

Not a Mayte fan but kudos to her for defending his reputation.
Sinéad IMHO has proven not just with this accusation but with other actions that she is mentally ill.. Google her.
Wendy where are you?
Until the end of time

Thank god. I do wish some would stop throwing shade or putting cryptic messaages out on social media. If they have a beef with someone then call them out specifically or better yet hash it out in private.
