Nia Long Explains That Time Prince Hit on Her, And She Turned Him Down
On Thursday following the untimely death of legendary singer Prince many fans took to social media to express their shock, heartbreak and memories including actress Nia Long. Long posted a message to her Instagram account recounting a time the Purple One hit on her, and she turned him down, only to see him again at her 21st birthday party.
At 18 I met him in a club. We talked. He asked me out. Believing he was out of my league, I declined. Years later we met again at my 21st birthday party in NYC. We sat in a booth together and talked about his love for my short hair. I expressed my love for his music and style. I wonder if he remembers me? I will never forget my encounters with PRINCE. RIP #LadyCabDriver
