so, to continue. I guess she has every right to do a book..it was her loss too. However of everyone involved in his circle this is the one I dreaded the most. Other books will follow an inevitable pattern i.e. cute stories, some insights into the recording process, his work ethic, charitable works, funny stories, he was a hard task master etc.



Mayte's book however crosses a huge line for me in that we all know how firecely private P was, this was a shattering moment for him too & he did not want this part of life shared. To do a book like this should require 100% approval from both parties - it wasn't done when he was alive & yet as soon as he's gone here we have the full account. By the looks of it no details spared & fully sensationalised in People magazine...& inevitably will be picked up by tabloids across the globe.


So, as we approach April 21st 2017..this book will dominate...as if we & more importantly his family aren't hurt enough. It refelcts incredibly badly IMHO on her & her motives.



What a world we live in. sad



Prince was beginning to write his own book. Would it have required 100% approval from ALL parties involved? I don't think so.



There was nothing wrong with the People magazine article. Nothing in that article that hasn't already been discussed HERE, time and time again.


She has never discussed the child's birth defect in detail before but she has discussed the marriage and the fact that child had a defect before in the media do he did not stop her from speaking he stopped her from making money.

How is this done "from love"? It is done for one thing and one thing only: money.

If this is not about cashing in and making a cheap buck off her ex-husband and dead child, then prove it, by donating 100% of the proceeds of the book to a childrens hospital, but we all know that ain't gonna happen!

Prince's memoirs are not comparable. For starters, he did more than just marry someone to justify the writing of his memoirs. Secondly, Prince was a class act, and never would've aired his dirty laundry in public. Mayte should be honest with herself, and ask herself if she truly believes Prince would be happy about her writing this book about him. I believe she knows the answer, but the ringing of $$$ sounds louder in her ear than her conscience.

Prince threw plenty of shade in his life and had moments that could definitely not be considered classy. Hate to burst your bubble. You don't have to defend his honor here. We are all fans regardless of what the people who really knew him have to say. That's the way I see it. I just don't understand people being personally butt hurt about this. It doesn't make logical sense.

-- Good points but we will see in a few weeks how interested the media is in Prince's homicide case. I am sure they will not find it as revenue generating.

It makes me laugh when folks talk about Mayte writing this book to "heal." I guess everyone who suffers the tragedy of losing a child should just try and get a publishing deal and write a book about it then. Oh, but wait, it's only if you're married to a world-famous musician that you will get your book on the shelves.

This is not about healing. This is about money. Money. Money. Money.

She can tell her story, it is not just princes story, he married her so he made it her story too. I do think describing the babies appearance should have been kept private, out of respect for the child. obviously something she would discuss in detail with her loved ones, but not for any random person that may or may not give a crap. To included those details and then get paid feels wrong. She could have told the exact same story without describing the little one, and not lost any of the story. Again, it just makes me feel bad for everyone, that it all had to end like this...

Since when is it up to him to decide she can make money? If money is your point I would say it's the least he could allow her to do since she didn't get any money from him in the divorce.

Prince never publicly betrayed anyone the way Mayte is doing to him right now. I have no illusions about Prince and perfectly aware that he could be an asshole to people in his private life. But publicly, he always remained dignified, never sold stories about his personal life and never spoke ill of former associations, band members, girlfriends, wives etc.

What Mayte is doing with this book is beyond contemptible.

On Twitter Mayte is promoting this People Magazine cover telling people to pick up a copy so obviously she has no problem with the sensationalist headlines.

Making money by writing a book about your dead husband and using the tragedy of your sons passing to drum up publicity for it is morally correct in your eyes? Why should she get a dime of Prince's money? She should stop being a freeloader and get a job, like the rest of us.

Prince never did air his dirty laundry in public. And yeah he did a hell of a lot more to justify writing a memoir. What has Mayte done other than marrying someone famous? And that's not a slam agains her. Most people aren't famous and will never write a book.

She does work. Sheesh. So you don't think it's morally correct for anyone to receive a divorce settlement ever?

Throwing shade is not the same as airing dirty laundry in public or writing a tell all. Has Prince ever spilled the beans on either of his marriages or really any of the women he was with?

And do you really think that Prince's book would've described in graphic detail the deformities of his dead son? Of course it wouldn't have. It would've been classy, like everything else he did.

And the big difference between Prince writing a book and Mayte, is that Prince worked hard to build a name for himself and cultivated a craft which he spent years perfecting. He wasn't writing a book trading off of his association with anybody else. Mayte is a freeloader looking for an easy payday.

I'm sorry Prince and Mayte are not the same thing at all. One was a world class musician/artist/celebrity/superstar. The other was just married to him for a few years.

I don't think it's morally correct to enter into a marriage with someone who is a millionaire, be married for five minutes, and then expect to walk away with enough money to never have to work again. Prince earned that money, not Mayte. Her brief marriage to him should not entitle her to his money. It's not as if they were married for twenty years, or she was with him before he become wealthy, or helped him attain that wealth in any way.

And I don't know what you're talking about regarding the autopsy report. I've never said I wanted to see that.

Well there are plenty of attorneys and judges who see it differently. And divorce is not quite that simple, nor the settlements. She would certainly gave been entitled to something legally and within the laws. (The other comment was for someone else but I deleted it after reconsidering the shitstorm it might cause)

You would think the people here judging Mayte would find that contemptable. Makes no sense how people decide what's ok and what's not.
And I'm sure he would have been pressed into dishing out some personal shit or no one would buy the book lol

Just because something is commonplace in law, it doesn't make it morally correct. A lawyer can convince anyone they're a victim and that they're entitled to money, alimony, compensation etc. That's their job and that's why lawyers have a bad name. It doesn't make it right morally. But people are out for themselves, and want a piece of the pie, without having lifted a finger. Lawyers love these kind of people, who are work-shy and morally bankrupt and happy to hide behind the law and delude themselves into believing that they're "entitled" to something they didn't work for.

Laws are laws for a reason. Laws are not immoral. Laws are there to protect citizens. If you don't like the way divorce laws are written that's not the divorcing party's problem. Besides i would hardly say everyone who gets a divorce settlement is morally bankrupt or work-shy. Mayte was a working member of NOG besides a supportive spouse which equals contributing to his assets.

Identity

If he never said anything about these women in public why would he bother in his book which I thought was going to be about his music anyway. If you look at the full life he had the last 20 years I do not think he gave her a thought he had the next wife lined before their marriage was over.




Indeed, he did. But, then Mani dumped his ass and bore a child with another guy, her new husband. That's called Karma.

That's possibly the most naive thing I've ever read on prince.org.

And stating people who receive divorce settlements are morally bankrupt and work-shy isn't?

It makes me laugh when folks talk about Mayte writing this book to "heal." I guess everyone who suffers the tragedy of losing a child should just try and get a publishing deal and write a book about it then. Oh, but wait, it's only if you're married to a world-famous musician that you will get your book on the shelves.

This is not about healing. This is about money. Money. Money. Money.

Truth!

How is this done "from love"? It is done for one thing and one thing only: money.

If this is not about cashing in and making a cheap buck off her ex-husband and dead child, then prove it, by donating 100% of the proceeds of the book to a childrens hospital, but we all know that ain't gonna happen!

Prince's memoirs are not comparable. For starters, he did more than just marry someone to justify the writing of his memoirs. Secondly, Prince was a class act, and never would've aired his dirty laundry in public. Mayte should be honest with herself, and ask herself if she truly believes Prince would be happy about her writing this book about him. I believe she knows the answer, but the ringing of $$$ sounds louder in her ear than her conscience.

Well....actually I seen where the proceeds from Mayte's book is going to her animal rescue.

The one clear thing is that there are different opinions about the book. Some people are fine with it while some aren't. I'm ok with that. I can agree to disagree. It's not that important of an issue in my life to insist others see it my way or vice versa. Have a good day every one!
