Prince's Sister Tyka

Can we discuss the lady that is Prince's sister Tyka Nelson and have a decent discussion? For years I use to ask if anybody had ever seen a pic of Prince and his sister together? Nobody had em lol Now due to these tragic circumstances we have seen some. I have her cd and I actually like her voice and wonder why or if she ever recorded with her famous brother? Do you feel like Tyka has the strength to see this thing through? Im asking for your honest input about his sister and ask that we stay respectful in this discussion wink

BTW I thought that was sweet that she told the fans at PP that Prince loved them too...very touching.

Before people come in with the fawkshat because I know they will...

I think I said last night, they were close enough for her to be on his payroll and actually working...
As far as strength goes, she's a recovering addict, I pray she does. Which is why I hate that people come down on her so hard. Like they've never heard of a relapse of death and the pressures associated with it mad and like its not becoming painfully clear that her brother may have been an addict too (don't shoot the messenger)
As far as them working together she's said before that they haven't since they were kids, and never would again because they agreed not to.

Family dynamics are complicated and we know life for the Nelson's was NOT a crystal stair during their childhood. I believe they loved eachother in the unique way that siblings do.

I gotta be honest, before Prince passed I knew nothing about her. I've learned more about her in the past month than all the time before eek

.

I do wish her well though, Prince needs all the defenders of his legacy he can get.

I have no issues with Tyka's past...hell weve all done things to pay our bills and feed our families so Im gonna say as a woman shes been through some things and I can respect that. As far as Prince being an addict too I cant say that I truly believe that cuz I dont. But Im glad Prince had his sister working for him...its right.

I get pretty pissed about things said of her. She hasn't done anything I don't think any clear thinking person wouldn't do. Choices of the past are how we can learn to make a better future.

I'd definitely prefer giving her my money so I can listen to Prince than anyone else out there that I could imagine and am seeing might try. She knows how he operated the business or she's at least making choices based on Paisley advice.

I hope we find out she's a shrewd business woman that will make the fams happy and honor her brother's legacy.
Surprise, surprise.
Another treat. Another trick.

Tyka not only lost her famous brother, she had to deal with considerable stress in the shocking aftermath of his passing, having to endure exploitative tabloid stories about the present, the future and the past. She is a survivor who deserves peace and quiet as well as respect and dignity.

She didn't ask to be dragged into this and was by all accounts in speaking terms with her brother despite their past feuds. I think it's beautiful they reconciled before he died. so many people are left with unresolved anger when someone dies before they have a chance to resolve bitter differences.

Yes I thought the stories about her past were just uncalled for...I mean this lady had to be there for her brother who just happened to be a superstar and it was really tacky for people to bring up her past.

We all have a past. And God forgives us. Tyka is the only full blooded sister of our dear beloved Prince. In my opinion Tyka would be the only one that inwould trust to be in charge of the future of Prince estate. She was working for her brother and i would be more than sure they talked a lot about business and family things. We all have to love her and trust her.
I WISH YOU LOVE, I WISH YOU HEAVEN SWEET PRINCE...

She has my respect (RESPEK biggrin ), just for the fact that she's not leaking info to the tabloids. It's obvious because they paint her in a bad light. If I had to guess most of the TMZ info is coming from the half-siblings and/ or their reps. I just think she's handled the situation with grace, which I would not have been capable of doing in her situation.

I've only seen the one of the two of them with an older lady. P's face is mostly concealed by a toy he's holding.

Agree.


Some of the things I see written about her are so uncalled for. She seems like such a sweet lady and she must be under so much stress. My thoughts are with her

My only opinion of her is that she does love her brother, and she loves the fans. I believe she's having as hard of a time as anyone right now, if not more because she's his sister.

I have her album. I remember loving it back in the day when it came out (around 1988 or so?). I quite enjoyed it. a few years ago, I found it on vinyl, and own that now instead.

I'm not sure why people feel the need to talk about her like she's garbage. She's been through a lot of shit in her life, only the surface of which we might have an indication of, I'm sure. It's easy to sit and judge folk like that, and shame an addict or something with an affliction, instead of offering compassion and help. (not saying this thread is about that)

Prince's shit aside - as long as she lives her best life every day to be the best version of herself, that's all that matters.

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

I've always had a soft spot for Tyka. I had her album Royal Blue. "I just wanna spend some time with you and do all the things that lovers do...." I wore that song out! music

She seems to be doing the best she can. God bless her and her family.

I never really felt any type of way about Tyka. I only have one question how close were they? I ask because there came point where he stopped talking and it was like she feel off the map. Plus after his conversion to JW, it takes work to keep family ties. Since she didn't go to the Kingdom Hall service, I take it that she was not a Witness.

I have relatives who are JW and there was a time when it was like walking on eggshells, you didn't want to offend but they have their beliefs which conflicted with everyone elses.

As for her past, from the things I have read here, she told it, not hiding from it. She was standing in her truth, I ain't mad at her. but that did make me give Prince a side eye. Which leads me back to the question-how close where they?

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

Nursev is hurting very badly that's all I see from her posts. About Tyka she's just Prince's sister. She may be nice but she has no idea about her brother at all.

Prince I will always miss and love U.

The half-siblings know less about Prince than most of us. TMZ has other more connected sources that they go to when they need it.

RESPEK dat man !(I just had to do that)

I've been wondering about this, as I have only seen a few photos of them when they were very young, most with other family members. Have you seen pictures of them as adults, or teens even? Thanks in advance for your response.
