-

I've read somewhere that they hadn't spoken in years and that she had reached out to him a few times, but he ignored her.

-

Didn't she say in that periscope video that he wouldn't talk to her. Too lazy to go watch it again.

-

He says in "The Rainbow Children" that the woman and five others were banished...from the rainbow...forever. Maybe that's about Mayte, maybe not. But it sure fits the narrative and timeframe. eek

Mayte just said on Hollywood Exes they didn't talk. She said they had no (surviving) children so there was no reason for them to speak. Kinda like anyone else after a breakup. I don't speak to my ex-boyfriends. Most people don't probably for whatever reason. Doesn't have to be that you necessarily dislike the person. You simply don't speak because life goes on. I don't know if they were on "good terms" though. Seems like things might ended suddenly or possibly without closure (for Mayte) based on rumors and things Mayte has said over the years. Mayte also said on Hollywood Exes that she ran into Prince at a party in L.A. She said she went up to him and told him she "forgave him" and that things were cool. She wanted them to be able to see each other and have it not be awkward. She said he looked at her like she "had 3 heads". Maybe he was shocked she forgave him? Why she felt the need to forgive him is a mystery. There's speculation of course but that's their business.

But I don't think they tried to get back together. Prince wanted the divorce per Mayte and it seems like he moved on swiftly with Manuela. They were married a year after Prince divorced Mayte I believe.

You can watch Hollywood Exes for yourself on VH1.com

She went on "Hollwyood Ex's" and I"m sure that annoyed him. They must have broken up for a reason, so not surprised if they didn't talk.

Why was she pictured with the Twins last year? True they are all about on the same (low to barely any) talent level. Seemed like another pimp move to u$e talentless younger women for publicity 3way loser

Your comment is negative, and unnecessary.

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

The story goes that he was away a lot, or working, and she ended up cheating on him. (The whole Rave album is a big send off to her.) It seems that he and Manuella talked or were on friendlier terms, but maybe I misinterpreted that.

I really do believe Mayte was his soul mate, and that he might be alive if they were still together today.

I seriously doubt she cheated on him.

No 2 people grieve the sane and 85 percent of marriages end in divorce after child loss.

It's probably Larry graham's fault for introducing P to a religion she wouldn't convert too...and mani swooping in like a lady in waiting who would convert. Thus was his grief path....religion.

If mayte cheated because of rave then jayz cheated because of lemonade...

From what I heard at the time, Mayte was pretty much abandoned in Spain by P while Mani was at PP wearing Mayte's dresses and running around with Prince well before he was divorced.

I do think Mayte could have been his soul mate, though... and she certainly seemed to look out for him when they were together as much as she could.

I agree with y'all . I have been watching tons of Youtubes and remembering a lot , and one thing that strikes me is that I never saw him look at another woman like he did Mayte , he seemed so much happier than I had ever seen him when things were good with them.He had a glow about him , his eyes sparkled.
When they were on shows being interviewed, even when he was facing and speaking to the host he was always touching Mayte and if he moved his hands he was always reaching back to touch her , make sure she was by his side. She was his touchstone,when they would be walking off he always waited and took her by the hand .He was very tender and loving with her , no wonder she has had a hard time getting over him.
As for Mayte , she looked at him with such adoration it was palpable .
I think they were clearly very much in love . I almost feel that if Manuela had not been waiting in the wings they may have patched it up, but then there's the pesky little problem of Larry Graham and Mayte wasn't having it , and good for her for standing up for her own beliefs .
I was once in a relationship with a man I thought was my Prince Charming.
When a totally devastating event occurred in y personal life he was a total Dick about a lot of things at the beginning and said some very hurtful things to me that he later was sorry for and although I forgave him the damage had been done,
Quite sure the talk of pregnant women using hair dye and nail polish felt like a dagger in her heart like the things my ex said during my life crisis.
Perhaps that is one of the things she forgave him for, well, that and Manuella .
I don't know what all went down , but I like some others here feel that if he had just been able to work it out with her he may be with us today .
I have always thought that Prince just never seemed the same after the baby and the split with Mayte .
That said, I'm not saying that he didn't have a love for Vanity, but I do feel he absolutely adored Mayte and she him..
That's just my two cents and what the heck do I really know about any of it , I just find it tragic.

I don't belive mayte had ulterior motives but her mother certainly did. She introduced mayte to prince in the hope he would make her famous...and he did.
Baby, you're a star.

Okay! Either it didn't go down the way we think or Mayte is the most gracious person ever. Cause I couldn't do it.

I heard that she went to see him at the 3121 show, but didn't know he did that, that's very sweet. They were beautiful together.
I think Prince's death will allow Mayte to move forward, and seriously this time because I think a part of her hoped that she would get back with Prince, but now that he's no longer here, she can let go.

That was around the time that they were rumoured to be seeing each other again. I dont know if the rumour was true or not but he was salty with her when it came to getting in to one of his shows and she blasted him on facebook about it several years back. I think Mayte was always the love of Prince's life but he couldnt be around her cause of the pain she went through. You know with losing the little ones and then having your partner not support you through the grief. Plus you got people telling you about your husband's infidelities and that rips your heart up along with losing your babies. You are not supposed to hurt the people you love and I think that everytime Prince saw Mayte, he was filled with guilt over how he treated her while their marriage was dying. Maybe blocking Mayte from Prince's life was a way to not feel so much guilt and sadness. I am sure that Prince never wished Mayte any ill will because she is not a bad person or a schemer. Mayte's whole thing is trying to save every abandoned dog in the universe and you cant be cold hearted if you are doing that. Everyone has demons but you can still have a decent heart and a decent soul in the midst of that. I think Prince probably watched "Hollywood Exes" at least once or twice during its airing and it probably broke his heart to see the love of his life move on. I never saw the show but apparently Mayte never really revealed anything too crazy about him on there and that screams loyalty. According to Meltedman, Mayte has had the power for years to ruin Prince's life and get rich in the process but she is not going to do it. The woman has too much love and respect for someone that is basically her soulmate and that is admirable. Prince never really stopped loving Mayte because he wrote songs about her after they broke up and he did nothing to stop Hollywood Exes from happening. I hope that Mayte is able to move on from this loss at some point and find love again and finally have the baby that she desires(although gia is a cutie!) but it would not surprise me if she never does. I can tell you from my own experience that a first love is hard to forget and get over and sometimes that love is the only love that you will experience.

I think they were soulmates. He definitely had a spark in his eyes that I never really saw with other women since. They were beautiful together and I think they'd still be together if they hadn't experienced such devastating losses.

Agreed, I was just saying this recently. Her going on a televised reality show is the ANTITHESIS of how Prince conducted his affairs. It probably grossed him right out. It's very...common...so to speak. What the common people do. Royalty doesn't air their dirty laundry for public consumption!

WOW! Yes. Cart before the horse. I don't think she cheated. I think it was all a big mess and no one had the emotional maturity to sort it out. I feel so bad for Mayte. When I see clips of them in interviews, or the chemistry they had on stage, it feels so clear to me that she was THE ONE. It just hits me in the gut. Very different than all the others. It was a palpable spiritual bond. But the human side couldn't handle the maturity that was being asked of them. That's how I see it. And Prince doesn't stand around waiting for the weather to change. He made a call.

Thinking about Prince and Mayte cosmically finding each other, being TOTALLY head-over-heels in deep abiding love, then being torn apart, and moving forward in life apart, for so many years -- and them him dying SUDDENLY with no obvious closure -- just makes me feel CRAZY. I sure hope they get it on up in heaven some day and recreate their family with Amhir. It's just so heart-wrenching, cuz those two people were meant for one another, That kind of love is magical. They ARE family.

Maybe Prince stayed away because of Nelly's acid tongue. lol

Seriously, Nelly seems far more bitter than her daughter ever did. Mayte seemed utterly heartbroken and stuck in the space of being traumatized.

I never knew about Manuela, for all I knew she fell to earth and was a basic rebound. I was floored when they married, but she's a classic "aspirational type". I believe the reason her and Mayte could be friends was because Mayte knew she had nothing to do with their marriage breaking down. Prince had already abandoned Mayte in Spain.

Eric Benet is one dumb motherfucker- Crazy Berry(who couldn't keep a man if you stapled them together) and now this one! SMH After Prince,he was an easy mark,no? She was just looking for the come-up. All those young non-profit types are.* She always looks like she's holding back a smirky "Fuck You" in her pics. It hurt my heart when she dumped Prince. He was blindsided. I also felt that that was his harvest for handling the Mayte situation so badly.

I'm glad he's at peace now.

Nail polish and hair dye?!? Oh no. That doesn't cause genetic defects. What a shit thing to say.
