Mayte is writing a memoir about her life with Prince

This has been reported by the Washington Post today. Hachette will publish the book in April 2017. I have to say I'll buy it. What about you?

Wouldn't pay money to read it, no way. Also not keen on any Prince bios either. If she has to do it why does it have to come out around the 1st anniversary of his passing?! She could've done this when he was alive surely? He didn't stop her doing interviews or that TV show.

Will NOT buy this either!

Of COURSE she is. I'm not at all surprised. Her advance must be HUGE.

Just an FYI....before this becomes a public trashing....this book is not a trashy tell all. It's actually a beautiful look into the full relationship of her and Prince. It's also about her life before and after him. So save the assumptions until you actually read the book. It's gonna make you appreciate the man and her even more.

I know some of you just love to hate on her no matter what, but that's a personal problem. But for those with some level of intelligence and common sense, you will see how beautiful a story it was, despite some of the tragedies.

To those who assume the worst, I can only imagine what your life looks like..,,

Meltedman----- Oh wow. You know, I will buy Mayte's book and I like her and have always taken up for her on here but your comment "I can only imagine what your life looks like" --- ??? The fuck? I know your her friend and you've always been on here taking up for Mayte (for those on here who don't know , I believe you were her lawyer during her divorce- correct me if I'm wrong) but that comment is fucked. So, your looking down on us on the Prince org? We're a bunch of nobodies with sad lives? Like I said, I've always liked Mayte but if here friends think like that, makes me wonder now about her. I do look forward to reading her book, and buying her new Moroccan clothing line that's coming out. :/

And btw, I called it right after Prince's death- Mayte will write a tell all and Manuela will put out a coffee table book of the two of them sharing their love in pictures. Watch and see.

I am not putting the whole .org down. In fact I have met many of you at her BELLYDANCE classes. My comment was aimed at those who are criticizing and picking apart her life by posting hateful comments about a book they know nothing about. And I was not a lawyer. Just a friend. Please don't take that remark as directed toward you. It's directed toward those who thing they know what it's all about by reading a press release, of which is half assed on most sites, the full press release is on ew.con and that's the one that should be referred to.....my apologies if you took my post the wrong way.

P.s. Meltedman-- PLEASE ask Mayte to explain HOW in the world she and Manueala became friends, in the book, Seriously, that is the burning question around here- Please ask her to address this because, no one can figure that one out....

I think she had a very rough go of it. Unless she had come to the marriage with a great deal of money and/or power, there was absolutely no way she could have handled the situation. I have felt sorry for her.

This is not at all surprising. Manuela will write one as well.

I couldn't care less about what the book is about. I find it repulsive to try and cash in using Prince's death as vehicle to promote her work. Especially as we all know he didn't want anything to do with her.

I think without knowing it, some fans actually want the world to forget about Prince

Malbena--- Why did he want nothing to do with her? This is what I haven't figured out.... She was the mother of his child and you're right, it did appear that he was 100 percent done but I cant for the life of me figure out WHY? I mean, if it is true that he was repairing old relationships, even contacted Carmen Electra before his death, why not Mayte?

How many of those women lost children with him? Maybe the pain was too much for him to face and the pain they both went through....that's just my take

Claims and speculations from his former relationships vs. truth and facts. If I didn't see a member actually reunited with Prince or mentioned by Prince, I will not believe anyone else. Especially when they were silent before his death as opposed to suddenly reappear after.

malbena--- Yes, that is probably true. Everyone is supposedly his "muse", girfriend, love of his life, best friend etc. etc. while poor little Larry Graham has stayed silent. And I think LG was a true friend and P looked at him that way.... sweet of him to just bow out and not say anything....all the others, I'm reading these posts like eek Especially that Appollonia mess....

meltedman--- I agree 100 % I always thought that too, that it was just much too painful. But I feel for Mayte that they couldn't make amends. I wish her the best. I love what she does with animals, seems like a good person.

Figures YOU would try to have something to say about Mayte... you just hate Puerto Ricans period.

Grab a seat and a TALL glass of STFU because you have a major problem with Puerto Ricans people, even tho your ex-husband was one (you married him for papers right?) and you always had personal issues with Mayte. Yeah, I remember you trashing Puerto Rican women and calling them whores... yeah I didn't forget your bitter ass. Remember her and Manuela are buddies, and we all know how far up her ass you are. lol

talk to the hand BTW Prince treated her the same way he treated all his exes, he simply moved on. People clowned Vanity and her book also, thought the same about Vanity, until Prince recalled his fondness for her onstage after her passing. So we as a whole don't know what Prince thought about Mayte, one thing is for sure, for a time she was his world and his beloved wife. So we should not speculate.

Malbena knows shit, she is just hating as usual.... she has much to say about her, all negative, all the time. Malbena is a bigoted towards hispanic women, because she has lots to say about Ricans in the past, calling them easy and dressing poorly and such. So don't listen to her, she's full of shit.

Facts are, during Prince's Vegas shows he hugged Mayte when he saw her. I think this was the last time they were together, he moved on, and she never bad mouthed him openly.

Keep telling yourself that! Everyone loves how desperate you get when we don't agree with you. You can call me racist all you want if you have nothing else but curses in your vocabulary.

The only desperation is yours, sweating anything Mayte to troll on. There's nothing wrong with cursing to emphasise a pont, but I don't do it all the time. Act superior if you want, we can see you are just an insecure women trolling Mayte threads... if you hate Mayte so much just move on and stop trolling.

Nobody else has called me a troll except you. Nobody else has used the racist card to disagree with my opinion.
