MINNEAPOLIS — “Inside the Industry” released the explosive chronicle of Prince’s ex-wife, Mayte Garcia, who dropped bombshells about their marriage in her memoir “The Most Beautiful: My Life With Prince.” The publication reveals intimate details about how she became Prince’s adopted daughter, the night he took her virginity, and why he tried to conceal their son’s death. Mayte was only 16 and living in Germany when her mother sent Prince, then 32, a video of her belly dancing. The “Purple Rain” star invited her backstage for one of his concerts, telling her, “I like your tape.” Mayte said Prince was standing outside his dressing room, shaking a maraca. Even though he wore eyeliner, heels and women’s perfume, Mayte felt Prince exuded virility. He was certainly nobody’s bitch. A year later, Prince adopted Mayte and cohabitation ensued at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota.

Yep, he became Mayte’s legal guardian (with her parents’ permission, of course).

Mayte would go on to dance professionally, and she became the star of Prince’s 1992 “Diamonds & Pearls Tour.” That same year, Mayte inspired Prince’s nameless (symbol) album. Then, three years later, Prince wrote the hit song “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” for Mayte. Love was definitely in the air. Wedding bells rung loud. Prince and Mayte got hitched on Valentine’s Day in 1996.

Eight months later, she gave accouchement to their son — Amiir Gregory Nelson (Amiir means Prince in Arabic).

But, when nurses held him up, all hell broke loose.

“The elation on my husband’s face turned to pure terror,” Mayte recalled.

“Why is he not crying?” Prince bemoaned.

Turns out, Amiir was born with Pfeiffer Syndrome Type 2 — which means he had a cloverleaf-shaped head due to extensive skull bone fusion. His hands and feet were webbed. He didn’t have an anus. And, his eyes — formed outside their sockets — were lidless.

The kid resembled an alien.

It was a damn nightmare.

“They brought the baby over to us,” Mayte recounted.

“He was curled on his side, gasping shallow little gulps of air. Because there were no lids to blink, his eyes looked startled and dry. I caught hold of his tiny hand, saying over and over, ‘Mama loves you, Mama’s here.’ After six days, he was struggling to breathe. And I said to the doctor, ‘He’s not leaving here, is he?’”

Sadly, the answer was “yes.”

Amiir died that same day.

Prince was devastated.

“I don’t think he ever got over it,” Mayte said.

“I don’t know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven’t.”

Prince determined he could never have a baby with Mayte.

She bled throughout the pregnancy, and her ultrasound images looked terrible.

So Prince divorced Mayte in 2000 and had every memory of her and Amiir burned.

It’s as if they never existed.

A depressed Mayte blamed herself before contemplating suicide.

But the affection of her dog, Mia, obstructed it.

Prince died in 2016 after overdosing on fake Vicodin laced with fentanyl.

He was 57.

  5. Leave” Prince”
    The Hell…….Alone
    Now here Comes this ( expired) Baby’s mama Years later ….SAD

  6. Why the F would her mom send a vid of her 16yr old belly dancing to a grown man? These parents keep selling their kids OMG!

  7. The baby was a sacrifice, that’s why Prince told her they have to let the child go!

  8. Prince is the only artist that has never been involved in a s scandal, court battle or anything like that so please stop this BS…He didn’t adopt Mayte and that’s not what killed him…

  9. I am so sick if these moms dam near pimpin out their daughters to these older men for money. ALL of them who participated in such fuckery needs to be thrown under the jail. Make no dam sense.

  10. She says he would have liked the book… Yet, she waited until he died before releasing it…

  11. Her mother PIMPED her. PIMPED her out her 16…SIXTEEN year-old CHILD…JUST like Kris Jenner! WHO would send or ” drag” their TEENAGE daughter to a rock concert AND PUSH HER to try to make contact with AN ADULT MUSICIAN.
    Its HER story, she can tell it! Its about time SHE gets to make her own decisions!

  12. Prince, like Elvis, groomed their under aged, soon to be wives. If they didn’t have the money and power I’m almost positive they would have been arrested for statutory rape. Crazy.

  13. WOOOOOW SOME OF THIS I KNEW ALREADY BUT NOT THE “MISTREATMENT” PT THAT’S CRAZY. SHE STOOD BY HIM TO THE END. I NEVER KNEW THAT SHE DATED TOMMY LEE AFTER PAMELA ANDERSON. I ALSO DIDN’T REALIZE THE TIME BETWEEN LEAVING MAYTE & MOVING ON W/ OUT HER. THAT’S KINDA COLD MOVING LIKE THAT AFTER A DEATH OF A BABY / CHILD THINKING OF ONLY HIMSELF & NOT HER @ ALL IF TRUE / HOW SHE SEEN IT. BECAUSE I’M SURE SHE’S SPEAKING HER TRUTH DOESN’T MAKE IT TRUE JUST HOW SHE SEES IT THRU HER ROSE COLORED GLASSES.I WAS SHOCKED TO HAVE HEARD OF HIS DEATH SEEING VIDEOS IF HIM JUST HRS BEFORE HE WAS FOUND. SHE ARRIVED @ THE SEEN SHE WAS SO HEART BROKEN ETC. R.I.E.P MR PRINCE NELSON ROGER YOU’VE LEFT YOUR TRADE MARK IN THE INDUSTRY {THE ONLY MAN WHO COULD WEAR EYELINER, HEELS & A BLOUSE THAT GET IT} LOL

  14. For all of you saying she shouldn’t have written the book: it’s HER story too and she has the right to tell it.

  15. Something was wrong with princes sperm. Or her ..devils child GOD removed that child. Because Prince was Actually in the Beginning a Luciferian then Satan.tham toward the end of his life Allah.

  16. She never got over Prince. He was her first love. So sad. But the death of a child is enough to rip apart some very strong marriages.

  17. Prince controlled her eating. Shaming her and restricting food. His obsession with vanity probably destroyed her body making her unable to produce a healthy pregnancy. Pregnant women need an enormous amount of nutrients to have a successful pregnancy.

  18. More proof putting faith in a God is futile and stupid. His faith led to his son’s death. Unforgivable.

  19. Why is she putting out a tell all book when he was so protective of his privacy ? Shes sold him out for some money ……

  20. Im sorry to say this but possibly Mate is lying.I met him back in 98″ New Years Eve in Las Vegas when i had long black hair.He had ordered one of his body guards to assist me to his private table.Where after a very weird brief conversation.He offered me a huge round pill that looked like a horse tranquilizer.I excused my self because it was very uncomfortable. One of the most crazy strangest encounters.But i will say he was eccentric.

  21. I think it’s messed up that she started a dumb rumor in her book about how prince burned his son’s urn and belongings, yet how dafuck do you burn ashes?? Yet Mayte just did a live-streamed interview about how Amir’s urn/ashes are with her cuz a guy found it at the garage at paisley park!! Plus in her book she writes about stalking prince and being stuck on him and yet she plays the victim and gossips about prince doing her wrong? More like her parents did her more damaged than prince since she even writes about how her mother didn’t feed her for an entire week, just cuz Mayte got stage fright and didn’t danced with her mom and oh writing about how her mothers kitty cat was wet for prince, which is why she wanted to see prince live at the nude tour cuz she thought he was going to be naked and yet her own mother forces her to work for him and show him her dancing tapes️️️ even worst on the one show she’s on she complains about how she doesn’t have any purple rain money to support her daughter cuz she’s a single mother, but maybe was just a kid during purple rain and prince isn’t her adoptive daughter’s father and in her book she wrote that she didn’t wanted any $$$ after the divorce. Also in her book she talks about losing Amir and having one miscarriage after that but in a video where she’s drunk she says she’s had 3babies by prince️️ also she claims to say that prince did drugs and did overdose when they were together but she didn’t do anything about it, yet she was old enough to marry him and still not do anything about it but she does have the nerve to write about HERSELF trying to overdose on pain killers and wanted to commit suicide? So how do we even know if she’s lying about prince since she didn’t do anything about him “overdosing”when they were married but yet she writes about her wanting to commit suicide and trying to overdose on her own pain killers yeah sounds like she’s the one who’s lying to make that $$$$ by making prince look bad

  22. As much as i love prince and he was a genius and wise person but damn he had some toxic ways at times when it came to the women in his life. He had so many muses sometimes the line between artist and girlfriends was kinda blurry. I’d say that was his kryptonite. And i feel like some of them were disposed of when he moved on to the next.

  23. Mayte’s mother is just as bad as Vanessa Laines’ horrible mother. Pimp out your virgin daughter to some rich man. DISGUSTING excuse for a mother.

  24. Prince was a raging narcissist who only selected women he could use as “props” for his inestimable out of control ego… once they realized this and no longer wanted to be his prop, he would discard of them like trash. He even burned up and discarded his sons ashes as he incinerated everything that Mayte left behind at the house including their sons ashes. She was horrified to learn of the beast he truly was. He got in good with women by offering them roles or the fake promise to be in movies or make an album with him. That was his claim and they would all sign right up for his faux promises. He did this to all the ladies he wanted to seduce including Dani Leigh. He’s really pretty disgusting. Shrouded by his incredible talents.

    I’m disgusted that his child pedophilia was overlooked completely in those days. But more disgusted that her parents basically gave this pedophile a child bride. Friendship my ass. He was sleeping with that girl at age 16 and that’s that. He was truly sick to be ever exchanging numbers and hanging out with a dam 16yr old. I’m sure she wasn’t the only one. Shame ti them all for it.

  25. Mayte’s mother is just as bad as Vanessa Laines’ horrible mother. Pimp out your virgin daughter to some rich man. DISGUSTING excuse for a mother.

  26. The world is a better place , without prince and Micheal Jackson. Just my personal opinion

  27. I love Prince, however, his control caused Mayte to suppress her feelings. She has a right to share her story!!! Period!

  28. Any woman who has lost a child knows the pain she was in and will be in for her entire life.

  29. He treated her horribly and she still speaks softly about him. 😢

  30. Mayte was so naturally BEAUTIFUL! And a very talented dancer! Prince was way too old for her, IMO.

  31. The same thing happened with the lead singer of Aerosmith. He became guardian of a 16 yr old girl that he was having sex with, got her pregnant and didn’t want the kid. A fire started when she was all alone sleeping that was suspicious. She only lived because she woke up and crawled into the fire place and rescuers got to her.

  32. Prince claimed Myatè was his soul mate then abandoned her at her lowest point in life. Wow. Men are really something else.

  33. I have a daughter (age 33), and there’s no way I would’ve allowed any celebrity to become my teenage daughter’s legal guardian!
    Some parents are so busy looking at money & fame that they’ll risk their children’s sanity, safety, and life for it!
