I'm sorry-this may seem like a stupid question, but is Tyka a sibling of Prince? I remember reading somwhere a long time ago that he did have a sister-is this her? If so, what does she look like? wink razz wink

Tyka is Prince's stepsister. She's a bit chunkier than his royal badness though.

Not an easy feat to grow up in your big brothers shadow
Even before he was famous Ty Cobb had to fight for some attention.
sorry if that was over your head...jump up and try to catch the point next time.

Tyka Nelson circa 1988

The album is nice enough, unoffensive, m.o.r. adult r&b - I find it very reminiscent of Janet Jackson pre-Control.

she has a very sweet, breahty voice. the one with the red cover(can't recall the name) isn't as solid. just a few good songs here and there.

I think I saw a pic of her in the Prince music forum that basically stated that she has had a troubled past. She didn't look that good. It was either in that forum or on Housequake eek .

They said that she was hooked on drugs and that Prince refused to give her any more money.I'm sure somebody can find the article and post it here.

Yeah i recetnly read that she was on drugs and had also been a prostitute. Do they havea good relationship? I guess not if he wouldn't give her money.

I don't know if they have a good relationship or not, but from looking at pictures of her-it's obvious that Prince got the GOOD LOOK genes. The girl looks tore UP! eek

Speaking of sisters is Tyka his only sister? At least 5yrs ago I bought a CD from a duo called sa deuce(sp?), any way in the back where they give the thanky you one of them said hey would like to thank their big brother prince. Is this the same sister or someone thanking another prince?.

Okay I did just view a television clip in here and I thought I had heard that the girl was Prince's half-sister. I guess I should check up on that so that we all know for certain how she relates to Prince. It was an old clip and I didn't think she looked anything like Prince.

Hopefully I got it right though. Oh, and I know nothing about her album. Sorry.

Tyka is the only sibling of prince that had John Nelson as father and Prince's mother. The half sibling you are referring to is a daughter of John Nelson with his first wife. She is older than Prince, lived in NYC and was the one P lived with while getting his career started. And she is the one that sold her story to the rag mags.
Tyka looks a lot like P's mom, is a bit overweight and is younger than P. P was the oldest of his mom and dad's union.
