Prince, 57, died unexpectedly in his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. But, perhaps, no one is more shocked and saddened by his death than his ex wife, Mayté García.
“I can’t even think of the words of what I’m feeling. This man was my everything, we had a family. I am beyond deeply saddened and devastated…” García said on her Instagram account.
The former dancer of Puerto Rican descent met Prince in 1990. She later joined the singer on tour as a backup dancer. They became a couple and married in 1996. He released an album inspired by her that included the hit “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World.” Watch below, but make sure you have a couple tissues around.
After their wedding, the couple lost their only son a week after he was born due to Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare disease that affects the skull and bones.
“I loved him then, I love him now, and will love him eternally…He’s with our son now,” García added.
