Where Did It All Turn for Prince

I mean have u asked yourself lately where it really all turned bad for Prince? I think it's been since about 2012/2013 cuz you could see a change in him physically. Mentally I think after he second divorce he changed...something was just different about him eek Its still truly amazing that he was such a great performer while obviously dealing with something eek

I'm narrowing it down to sometime in 2014. Maybe late 2013. Really wonder what happened, but I'm positive something did. Poor baby. hug

I know it does seem like maybe 2013/14 because you could see the change in his pic and such...obviously whatever it was it was tough.

His 2nd divorce was 2005 right? I think 2007 when he did his 21 nights residency he was on fire and having a ball.

I wondered about depression but it looks like there was a loss of muscle mass too. I also wondered if he had a break with Larry Graham and JW around then.

Nurse, stop this. Pls.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I noticed the muscle mass loss too...I know aging can cause this, but it was quick!

It didn't last if there was a problem - which would be pure speculation anyway as nothing at all has been even hinted in that regard. He was an active, faithful and very valued member of his congregation at the time of his death.

I think it's something entirely different and my guess would be a serious health issue. It doesn't really matter exactly what it was and it's certainly none of our business, I'm just so sorry he had to go through whatever it was.

Before his death and before discovering his career, I thought he looked at nice. I remember the Grammys Awards. But now seeing all the pics of him through the years it really seems like something changed in 2013. The physical difference between 2010 and 2013 is noticeable.

In 2009, he wasn't looking that healthy, at least from the footage in his LA concerts.

I've come to the conclusion its been slowly progressive. MJ passed in 2009. When Prince is asked to comment he states he's too close to it. What did that mean? Not really sure but given how this played out it sounds like he knew he was on the same path.

I'm gonna say that I thought maybe around the end of 2013, beginning of 2014 I was starting to see age-related changes and it continued along that way and I wasn't alarmed. November 2015 was when I noticed that something was seriously going wrong, he looked really ill. And his eyes looked terrible...I saw things in them that I didn't want to see sad

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod

I've been thinking about this too. Thing is you can be dealing with things on the inside for a number of yrs b4 they become really noticeable on the outside. Also P was pretty & as far as we know lived a healthy life, & had funds 4 the best of everything. I just hope he wasn't in chronic pain or illness or struggling with pain relief for too long.

Seriously I use to post pics of Prince all the time and I started to notice it like 2012 or 2013 and it showed in his facial features. I never said anything so I wouldn't hurt his feelings, but I saw the change.

I guess a person can only keep things/illnesses to themselves for so long then they start to show physically. I also hope he wasn't in pain for years and that he had someone to confide in/trust.
