Cosign. The best comment on this tread.

She can, and has the right to tell her story, to what ever level of intamate private detail she would like to. People can like it or not. But her inclusion of salacious and bizarre situations about prince, that she dose not even know if they happened, is not fair at any time, but supremely unfair to a dead man. If you think that is a hateful attitude than include me in the haters. I know that there were a lot of people here that were mean to prince while he was alive, but it is even sadder that people are supporting unfounded unbelievable sad and negative things about him now that he can not defend himself. Can you agree it was not great of mayte to included the "maybe he did"ash burning story and "maybe he did" drug implication stories? You don't have to hate mayte to stand up for prince when he can't... [Edited 3/19/17 17:08pm]

Everyone I just listened to podcastjuice.net Michael Dean hit it dead on the nail. We are just fans, did we know him personally, did he confide in us. How do we know what he would've wanted. Like I said before none of us have the connection that she had to him. So you can go and hate all day if you want, whenever you get through with it, we are or were never part of his "family". We're gonna hear things about Prince whether you wanted to or not. Also what she's saying is not negative it's stuff we already know about, but some of us don't want it brought up, it is sad, but true. At the end of the day look at what Michele206 just said above this comment. You haters are tanishing his legacy not Mayte.

It doesn't matter who's buy the book and thats none of our business, but the screenshots that people posted on here from online book retailer sites already show there are some interest. And what you just said about the 2/3 crowd are just proving my point of how haters are actually unpaid promoters.

And you are just a fan who has no idea what went on Prince's private life. I go to my local library both main and neighborhood branches all the time, and if I saw Sheila E's and Dez books and unauthorized Prince books in the non-fiction section, so will be hers.

Oh yes I am going to enjoy the book. Its coming from someone who actually knew him for 10 years and lived in his PP world not from a fan who think they knew about Prince but going by based on interviews thank you very much.

Because interviews and books by people who knew much longer than M1 mean nothing. Dez and Sheila E's do not trash anyone while telling the truth. That is what grown ass adults do. I still say this women was a handful and that is the reason he sent her packing. No one is perfect despite what you minions believe.

The book isn't even released yet, so how can you know what's in it? And if you're so opposed to the book, Laura, why even pay attention?

Do any of you people sympathize with both Mayte and Prince? Or is it just Team Prince or Team Mayte?


I sympathize with Prince and Mayte. They both went through a horrendous time. My only issue with any of this is people villifying Mayte for speaking her truth, villifying her for putting out a book that they have yet to read or even know the whole context of what they are reading. They only have snippets and are making judgments based on those snippets. I'll reserve my judgment of the book and what is in the book until I read the entire book, if I do so. Instead of taking things out of context and getting all bent out of shape by those snippets, I'd rather have the full story.

I totally agree. I will reserve my judgement of the book's content until it is released.

Will it? because most of the people i know only know him for PUrple Rain? CHuck Berry died today. Because any scandals in his life are probably from a billion years ago, people are going to be listeing to his music, not talking about how he died or if he behaved in odd ways in a moment of grief.

People listened to P's music. Don't get me wrong. But half of his catalogue is still not available to everyone. His live performances aren't available.

Now people think he is some kind of predatory pedophile who didn't give a shit about his son's death. That destroys legacies.

I don't mind the book so much, but I hate the People magazine cover because the context of those quotes is only available to those who buy the book and only Prince fans are going to buy the book.

When you read it in the context you will (maybe) understand why she talks of patience.

And yes, people meet for a reason. Like attracts like. It's always complementary. I met him too when I was 17 and nobody forced me, nor prevented it. Life, things happen.

Mayte had a mind of her own, she was not her mother's/family's puppet. Just like Prince. It might be possible to play such a game with a nobody but this was somebody used to advances. To seriously think he was played by Mayte's family makes him look stupid. Which he wasn't.



[Edited 3/19/17 14:09pm]



I think they fooled him not played him. They presented her to him one way and she had a whole different face later. I do not care what any of you say that dude did not set her shit on fire because of the baby. She did something. See this video below he looks unhappy when she tells were they will be living. See the 12:15 mark. https://m.youtube.com/wat...hS6IL9Ojao


Oh my gosh! You think he looks unhappy there? He looked confused to me by the question, then teasing. I didn't see him looking unhappy at all.


I agree benni....the way he whispers "she did" seems playful. Their adoration and respect for each other is evident. And I notice how these two were always touching each other. You see that in a lot of interviews of them. Especially this one w/Sinbad on Vibe (June 8, 1998)... https://youtu.be/I4JyVvRa9Kw It should begin at the point of Prince and Mayte introduction. If not, go to the 9:11 mark. They seem very happy here.

I do admire her for the dignified way she handled all the loss. Two children, a husband, your career (yes, she had built her career around her relationship with Prince and she had to forge her own way when they split), your home, mutual friends, and all the hopes, dreams, plans you imagined for your future. I have empathy for any woman who suffers such loss.

Of course, I empathize with Prince as well. He suffered the loss of the children, too. However, at the time, he appeared to take it in stride. Always maintaining the status quo. Kept it moving forward. Never looking back. However, it's not always beneficial to simply bury the past. It can revisit you in a most unpleasant way if you ignore any uncomfortable or difficult times and dismiss any lessons that might be gleaned from those experiences. I truly wonder if he ever made peace with that time in his life.

Heartbreaking circumstances....for both of them.

What's funny is no one is calling her a liar anymore. Before the excerpt where she says how old she was when they first had sex some detractors were screaming LIAR LIAR CRAZY LIAR anticipating a dirty old man scenario, but now that's gone they just scream DRAG HIS NAME THROUGH THE MUD FOR THE MONEY WHAT A MANIPULATIVE MOTHER SHE HAD. The craziness will change again once the book comes out, anyone with half a brain sees through this *dragging* as the tired response to perceived racism it is. If Mayte were black things would be completely different.

There is a bootlegg copy out. I don't like exploration and I don't buy her routine. Also do not like the harassment from her followers.

It does mean something when the same locos who are outrage are the same ones who would have been escorted out if they even stepped at PP when P was alive while Mayte was actually lived there and chilling. Some of those same people should seek some mental help instead of worrying about someone who they don't know. Already Dave said one of the crazies have gotten a warning from the police for threatened Mayte, so I hope people need to check themselves and stay on the right side of the law. I hate to see an orger or some Prince fan getting legal trouble while Mayte is continue to do her other gigs and not losing any sleep of that fan rots in jail for doing silly shit but that is the price that person has to pay for getting all upset over someone they dont know.

Sheila E and Dez criticized Prince in the past so what the hell you talking about? They get a passed because they criticized him while he was alive? eek

You right, no one is perfect and that includes Prince.

[Edited 3/19/17 17:19pm]

One of the crazies Dave is talking about is Apollonia. You can figure out the rest from there since you want to quote poor ole' Dave about that particular story he's telling.

And if we didn't have Mayte to spew venom at we might have Tyka to see and wonder why she didn't do more to help her brother, since he helped her when she needed it. We might have time to notice the glee in Tyka right after the death of her brother, might it have been because of the fortune coming her way? Oh no, Tyka is black so she gets a pass at acting fucking crazy?

His entire catalogue is on Tidal and all but the Nog stuff is on all the platforms I believe he did millions if streams the first week out. Are you just making up stuff as you go along or do you think this book will sky rocket sales ? I hope not because this book could have the opposite effect but none of you give a flying crap about the music anyway.

You are black and everyone and their brother is busy trying to get your attention so I guess yes, people do want to hear from someone black.

According to Apples he has been harrassing her and she may take legal action against him. It is unfortunate that the host did not check his background. I could tell you some things about this guy and one of the reasons I look st Maute with a side eye look who she is rolling with. Did you read Sheila E's book she did not say anything we did not already know about Prince. He also takes up maybe 20 pages of the book and his face is not plastered on the front. The book is about Sheila E not Prince cannot say the same for M1.

Is this speculation? A personal opinion? Gossip? Or do you truly have factual evidence of this consideration?

That would be unfortunate. She would perpetuate the silencing of her story. But that is ultimately her decision to make.

The damage is already done with the People Magazine article. I was hoping the book had context and explanation. I wish the magazine was pulled or retracted, not the book.

I am reporting your post. The insinuation you have made against people opposing the book is disgusting. Nobody in their right mind here opposing the book would do such a thing as you are implying. I hope you are fucking ashamed of yourself. . [Edited 3/19/17 17:38pm]

Tell that to people who threatened Mayte and I read somewhere else too about this about this issue. Because I am close to mental health issues as it runs in my family and therefore I know what I am talking about. So if you are going to report you have evidence to back up since you don't know me.

Mayte's friend Dave said that people were threatening his friend's life to the point the police was contacted and instead I am getting reported for called that out? eek

And you have been reported too. You replied to my posts and even accusing me of not being honest so don't play Mr./Mrs Innocent. IF you get mad over things over that I said that is your issue to deal with, not mine or anyone elses. And therefore stop fucking replying to my posts then. You always reply to my post first and then get mad when I challenge your comments.
