Prince’s first wife is writing an “intimate memoir.”
Mayte Garcia, a former dancer who inspired Prince’s hit The Most Beautiful Girl in the World, will release her memoir titled The Most Beautiful in April 2017.
Garcia released a statement through publisher Hachette stating that she will document the “highs and lows” of her relationship with Prince, with whom she had an “almost otherworldly connection.”
The two met when she was just 16 and he was 32 and married in 1996.
They had a son Gregory later that year. He was born with Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, and died just a week after he was born. Garcia also suffered a miscarriage and they divorced in 1999.
She previously talked to Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper about losing the babies.
“To lose two babies is really scary…. It really caught on me emotionally, physically, everything,” she said.
She went on to say that the children’s deaths was probably what broke them up.
After Prince’s death in April, she released a statement through her manager.
“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. I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He’s with our son now.”
