Prince’s ex Mayte Garcia shares devastating details of her divorce from Prince in her new book ‘The Most Beautiful: My Life With Prince.’
The split came after the couple lost their first son six days after his birth and Garcia suffered a miscarriage with their second child three months into her pregnancy. It was a difficult separation according to Garcia, and in her book she reveals that all she wanted to take away from the union were the ashes of her son Amiir, but she could never get in touch with her ex after they split.
Then, she got some devastating news. ‘Eventually, a compassionate friend told me she’d heard about a troubling incident,’ writes Garcia. ‘Prince’s assistant was upset that he had been asked to burn everything in the house that reminded him of me and the baby, including the contents of the nursery – Amiir’s crib and toys and clothes and books- everything.’ Garcia was in a state of shock when she learned that the singer had burned the last thing she had to remember her son by, writing: ‘My whole body felt taken over with rage. It felt hot and toxic and lasted for a long, long time.’ It was less than 60 days later that Garcia had her father drive her to a lawyer’s office, and she signed the papers that legally dissolved her marriage. Garcia writes that while driving home she blurted out at one point: ‘This is bulls***.’
