ATTENTION!!! - Yes I do mean all of you!! After the mud flinging, trolling, religion, etc. That 1st thread turned into a zoo, and unfortunately, had to be lock - WARNING: If the same uncivil crap starts up again, this one may follow the 1st into lock.

Let's keep this thread civil, and I mean it.

If you want to discuss religion, by all means please post only in the Politics and Religion Forum.

Prince and wife Manuela Testolini Nelson are divorcing, PEOPLE has learned.

Alan Eidsness, the lawyer representing Prince, confirms that a divorce action was filed at Minnesota's Hennepin County District Court on May 24. The documents are sealed.

Prince (full name: Prince Rogers Nelson), 48, and Testolini Nelson, 29, a former employee at Prince's charitable foundation, were married in 2001. She took her husband's last name.

Testolini Nelson, a Toronto native, is the founder and president of Gamillah, Inc., which operates, among other ventures, a production company and a line of designer candles. She is also involved with nonprofits including YouthCARE and United Communities Against Poverty.

Prince, who is working on a follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2006 album 3121, was previously married to backup singer and dancer Mayte Garcia from 1996 through 1998, when their union was annulled.

Reps for Testolini Nelson had no comment; Prince could not be reached.

actually, it isn't wishing pain and suffering on anyone, or being glad that something bad happened to someone. That's a pretty ludicrous interpretation of what I stated. Go back, read what I said, and think about it, kid.

I think YOU need to go back & read. We started talking about P fans in general & the rabid need of some fans (not you, necessarily) wishing him pain in exchange for good output. I didn't have a problem w/ your initial statement, though I could have done w/o your use of the N word neutral

I know I'm making it seem directed @ you by responding TO you but it was actually within the flow of the conversation @ hand...

Then don't attribute what others said to what I said. I stated what I thought without reading the pages of comments.

Your comment was directed at me ("in response to your last comment..."), so I responded with that in mind. How else should I have interpreted what you said?

As far as the "N" word...lol.

This is my favorite part of an article posted by People:


Prince, who is working on a follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2006 album 3121

(Yes! bring it!)

And here is the full article:

Perhaps what I said about the whole trademark thing was not related 2 the Music Club closing down, but 2 intellectual property will now make more sense.

Well I guess most of us seen this coming, it's just official now, as it seems they weren't 2gether 4 the past year, since last summer at least, by the way props 2 bobbypin 4 always being 1st with the news, he reported their seperation months ago back in Dec. I believe. Mani seemed really nice, but I think Prince is ever changing, band members, looks etc... I guess long term settling down is not 4 him,which I can't blame him 4, most girlfriends haven't really lasted more than a few yrs. the traditional wife and kids lifestyle just isn't 4 everybody, and by the way y do some people want him back with Mayte, Vanity etc... would any of u want 2 get back with ur ex's, as far as him making anymore heartbreak music from this, 3121 probably at least some of it was recorded post breakup, so I dont think his next album will be focused on that, Love and Fury seem 2 touch on it but I dont think he'll dwell on it considering they've probably been over 4 over a year now and he seems 2 be doing just fine at his 3121 parties, it's not like Rave with Mayte, as far as Tamar goes I think their relationship is more friends than anything, now Liza Lena on the other hand (Lolita, Te Amo Corazon) about her, maybe? I'm sure he'll be just fine regardless.

LOL

Serious question here....why read 8 pages of comments? if you have something to add, why would you read what everyone else said and base your comments on that? I wrote what I was thinking regarding the topic at hand. Period.

And anyone who goes through 8 pages of posts...they need to use that time reading a book or something. Or about what's going on in Iraq or Israel. Time better spent.

I hear you, but some folks actually participate in conversations here. Others drop their 2 cents & mosey... And to be honest ANY time spent here could be better spent lol




And for those of you w/ cable modems, reset your shit - it was 2 pages, less clicking geek

Well, Prince has plenty of money to pay his ex-wives and still have a great lifestyle. I'm sure he's enjoying being single and dating up a storm. I just hope he is as happy as possible considering he makes us so happy.
