They are in an office area with a larger desk, and a meeting area, but it wasn't this bedroom.

And any other bedroom featured in those videos was in the Galpin house, not Paisley Park (like the dining room area, the hallway, etc.)


I'm 100% sure. Watch closely. You'll see the two square windows that are now on the wall with the bed. To the right you'll see the two narrower windows - the one on the left is a regular window and the one on the right goes down to the floor because it's actually a door to the outside. Now go look at Paisley Park and look at on Google maps in 3D. You'll the door I'm talking about - it goes to that small roof/patio area. In the Gangster Glam video, you'll see the bed 90 degrees to the left - on the right side of the bed is the window that faces towards Audobon Road and on the left is the door with the stained glass. It's the same room - the bed is just positioned different and there's been some remodeling. For example, the old closet door in the corner has been replaced with a normal door now and they've put crown molding around it. Other than that, it's the same room but with the drapes added and the rainbow painting to the skylight.


Here's a link btw: https://www.youtube.com/w...Gb7vQa4QG4

If you watch at 1:46 you'll see the two windows where the one on the right is actually a door with blinds covering it. Those are the two windows that face south from that room. In the new picture, the right door/window is just beyond view of the frame. To see the room from the same vantage point to the new photo, watch around 0:23.

Agreed. It is also featured prominently in the Gangster Glam video.

A couple of things -


This IS the same space that USED to be the office seen in the Gangster Glam video. Same room, under the pyramid skylights... just repurposed and remodeled over the years.


ALSO - what we're seeing here is essentially a "set" - this was a "show" bedroom/private entertaining space, but not where he actually regularly slept. His actual living spaces are/were much more plain.


The room has been 'staged' by the PP tour company for these photos and videos - how it appears in these pics is not how things were found when he left.

I'm inclined to think this is indeed where he slept. I remember reading that Eryn Allen Kane said that he had a regular queen size bed, when she asked him to use his blow dryer for her hair because she forgot hers. She had to go through his bedroom to go to his bathroom. I can't remember the magazine but it was about several cool stories that some friends had on him.

I am here! Where R U?! Gotta broken heart again...

^^^^^THIS ^^^^^ WAS HIS ACTUAL BEDROOM. In the Carver county data dump, either Meron or Kirk identifies the green bedroom as his. This is the one where pills were found laying in the nightstand.

Yes, this is the room he slept in. Next to nothing for decor. A table in this room has a flash drive on it labeled "ATL Shows 1 & 2"

Just hard for some people to accept Vanity was the one.

Good grief, yawn. Nah, I think it is just some people's assumptions that they dwell on and they act like they know it as a fact. Wow, some of you all are BEYOND OBESESSED with P's love life aren't yall? LOL. No one is denying how they felt about each other and her place in his life. Don't forget he also had another former girlfriend (not so well know bc she wasn't famous) that passed right before Vanity so his heart I am certain was aching for both. Sorry mods, didn't want this to be turned into another thread about "P loved Vanity the most" thread, just because a pic of Vanity 6 was on the table . I just had to get that off of my chest. That is what the Associated Artists forum is for if that is what you want to discuss.

Anyways back on topic, now since these pics, at least some of these are out, makes me wonder if they will start allowing the private living quarters on tours in the future.

And the plastic trash can is killin' me. haha

Me too - it was the first thing I noticed as the item that is entirely out of place in Prince's room. You have a round bed which is probably custom made with white fur and a mirror but you only have a plastic trash can from WalMart biggrin

In The court papers said it was the Green Bedroom that was his and he used it every day.

In a way I am relieved they didn't show his real bedroom. But in a way I am annoyed that they can not just be honest. That real bedroom is sad and profound, and not the tacky monstrosity they staged. Where the pictures staged too??

Look at his real bedroom the green one. What do you see? It's a mess, and very bare.

I did read the thread. Read my post better. I was saying that the white room was not his real room but that I was having mixed feelings about them staging it. It made me doubt the Shahidi stories about Prince being fond of his kids because maybe the pictures were staged too.

So the stuff in that bedroom wasn’t his? They brought it in to stage the room?

Ah ok. Considering how little he slept I’m not surprised he had little more than a mattress on the floor.

I hope not> I hope they were real pictures and not Shadidi's attempt to promote his daughter after P had died. That would be heartbreaking. The problem is that it is hard to know where truth ends and illusion begins--its confusing.

Am I understanding that P used that room when he was alive as a staged room and that he just really slept in a more plain and private setting. If that is the case, then the pictures were probably real.

Why? Don't be rude. The room was apparently staged. Yara is claiming its his room. the pictures of her are included amongst the stuff they are showing. Its confusing.

Maybe, (i was just thinking), Prince had more than one bedroom he would use and the one he was primarily using was the plain jane one.

Also, he may not have spent a whole lot of time in there.

No suggesting that the photo of Afshin’s daughter in Prince’s office was staged is absurd and offensive.

Yeah, I can see that now. It seems this room is just a room that had a bunch of extra stuff in it. I think maybe we think every room is going to be this stellar amazing layout, when in fact it's often not. The areas the public doesn't see are often as average and normal in a celebrity's home as our own.

It's interesting that there is a hallway off that "bedroom" office area that leads somewhere.



Also, I noticed the door to the room.


It doesn't seem to be the same door as we've seen here:


Then there is also this one, which seems to be a window, not a door:




By the way, these are from a thread last year. Prince loved him some stained glass.

At this point, I hate to be a debbie downer, but in my opinion I think everybody associated with Prince are hell bent on promoting themselves at the expense of Prince.
