C.J.: Prince's wife, Manuela, files for divorce

Prince and Manuela are over.
The rock star's second missus, Manuela Testolini Nelson, filed for divorce in Hennepin County District Court on May 24.

Court documents obtained today indicate that she has hired Edward Winer, a great attorney, while Prince is represented by Alan Eidsness (about whom I know nothing and therefore can't assess.)

There have been rumblings about the state of this marriage since last year. Because of rumors that they were not together and not getting along, around the time of Prince's "Saturday Night Live" performance with protege of the second Tamar, I made a joke on FOX9. I asked viewers whether Prince danced like a man who had hip replacement surgery or a man who was still married.

The speculation about whether Prince and Manuela were actually married began at the beginning. As some may recall, Prince kicked Mayte to the curb, by reportedly saying they didn't need a contract as the framework for their relationship.

Mayte and Prince wedded on Valentine's Day 1996.

Since it took the genius, Minnesota-born rock legend a few years to realize his disdain for a marital contract, there was reason to doubt that he and Manuela had a legal union. But they must have, since she's filed for divorce.

Many thanks to the anonymous tipster who found me in the office late Tuesday and said: "You need to find out why Judge Manrique is holding up the Prince divorce papers. You need to do some research so we can see what's going on there."

I have it on excellent authority that Judge Tanja Manrique thinks this gossip columnist would be critical of her for sealing a divorce file. While I await a phone call from the judge regarding this info, I can tell her that she's just plain ill-informed, dead wrong about this.

Never have I written a critical word about a judge sealing a divorce file, and I won't start today.

We all have a general idea about Symbolina's worth, so who needs more details? Attorney Winer is probably going to make sure that Manuela doesn't starve. And the record on Prince, who I think has written a song about how she just liked him for whom he is, should be a great help. Given the record on what a purple pain Prince can be publicly, we can all just image how much more entertaining he is in private and wish Manuela well.


C.J. is at 612.332.TIPS or cj@startribune.com. E-mailers, please state a subject -- "Hello" doesn't count. Attachments are not opened, so don't even try. More of her attitude can be seen on FOX 9 Thursday mornings.

Well, I saw her several times. Even up close personal when I had a question back in June 2000.

Guess his line in Fury comes to light.

"will this song have a happy ending...only the woman knows..only she knows"

Sounds like Prince doesnt want the divorce
...could it be because of his recent desire for his career to be in the limelight again?

Oh dear, if Prince doesn't have a pre-nup, this is going to be expensive. The guy made 50+ million $ in 2004.

Maybe that's why we have to wait for the tour - every $ he earns now is going to be shared with Mani... hmmm

She rates herself at stand-up too - is there no start to her talents?

It's too bad, but I am not going to pretend to be all broken up about two folks I don't know. I kind of picture Prince being like Austin Powers 2. "I'm single again. Yeah Baby!"
"New Power slide...."

There was a report posted here that Prince's lawyer at the time visited Paisley Park shortly before the trip to Hawaii when it has been suggested Prince and Manuela were married.

I'm sure the pre-nup came along with the confidentiality agreement.

what's this "a while ago" shit? people should know full-well that when it comes to marriage, the wedding band's always got space enough to slip his dick through. i'm not surprised in the least.

and let the choir come in:

NEEEEEXT!!!!

Eventhough we love him for his music etc.... we don't really know what kind of person he really is. It's hard enough for a "regular" couple to keep it togeather, I just wish them the best if it is true about their devorce. I still wish that he would have a child someday. In responce to her pre-nup, I'm sure she'll be ok, in all the years that I've been a Prince fan I've never even knew that he's made so much money, I mean I knew he was big time but 50Million in one year. All in all I just really enjoy his music.

Let's get this out of the way now...

Isn't the only way JW's can get divorced is if adultery has taken place?

innocent I'm just asking cause that's what I heard.
