I already posted about this on Housequake but I'll say it again. I do hope that people will respect Prince's privacy during this time. Remember the Mills/McCartney fiasco? I don't want to see Prince as hurt as Paul was, from rumors and speculation about a very private matter. sad



his privacy? nawww he gave that up YEARS ago. if he wanted to be a private person he should not have drawn public attention to himself. Mani gave it up when she married him.

Aww damn... sad

All I know is I don't want P to go to his grave w/ a pimp hat & no one who truly loves him. This makes me sad that they couldn't make it, he had a great creative run w/ her - she seemed to be an inspiration...

And people are SO happy about this - kinda sad hmm

shrug

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.

If it's true sorry to hear it. I guess it really is going down like the system of things. Blessings to P and Mani.

I agree. Love conquers all. Was he really in love with Mani and other women? Was it enough? Or was he afraid to be alone? He needs to take some time to search his soul. So that he doesn't make the same mistake again. He deserves to be happy. I don't understand. His love songs are so amazing. Reflection is a great song. It's sad that it didn't work out. I wonder was he too controlling. Or did Mani ever love the real him and not the superstar Prince. confused

She's nauseating to read. An insinuating, self-referencing egotist.

I guess if it's true, I hope things end amicably and fairly for both of them. Sort of gives all the post-3121 quiet a little context...

eek Wow! This was a surprise, even though I've been expecting to hear/read something like this for a long time, like most of us.
I just hope this won't turn into one of those really ugly divorces. I hope this is for the best for both of them...

Does where they were married have anything to do with the divorce laws?


nope.


Or is it only based on what state the divorce is filed in?


yeah, but it should be in a state in which they lived. she can not just go to some random state and file there.



right you are. you have to reside in the county where you file for a certain period of time prior to the filing of the divorce. Typically 90 days for the county, and 180 days for the state. So, she would have had to reside in Minneapolis (Hennepin County) for 90 days, and Minnesota for 180 days prior to filing. It doesn't matter where Prince lived, it is all contingent upon where the Petitioner lives. And, for the ones suggesting the law applies to where you got married, nope, has absolutely no relevance whatsoever. I got married in Vegas cool but if I divorce, it is based on Texas law, as that is where I "reside". wink

this could be one of the reasons NPGMC got shut down "temporarily", because they saw this coming...so there wouldn't be a kajillion threads and chat conversations about the divorce with all kinds of gossip and lies flying around among the fans. shrug

Divorce is always unforunate.

Some real life lessons need to be learned here.

I'm with you Calhoun. I guess I did think that Prince was marriage/parent material on some level.
