Mayte Garcia married Prince in 1996 and later that same year, on October 16th, gave birth to their first child. Unfortunately, their son, Amiir, only lived six days.

“I don’t think he ever got over it,” Garcia tells PEOPLE of her late ex-husband. “I don’t know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven’t.” In her new memoir, Mayte opens up about her life and marriage to Prince and also reveals that the loss of their son, who was diagnosed with Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 at birth, ultimately tore them apart.

Garcia reveals that there were signs something was wrong during her pregnancy, but that the legendary singer was adamantly against invasive procedures to determine the issue. When doctors suggested an amniocentesis, Prince, a Jehovah’s Witness, stated, “No, we’re not doing that.” However, the Purple One chose to pray, “’Please, bless this child,’ said Prince as he prayed on his knees. “We know you won’t allow this child to be harmed.'”

Mayte describes Prince’s reaction after she gave birth to Amiir via C-Section:

“I don’t know how to describe the look on my husband’s face. Pure joy. And then they held the baby up to those harsh lights,” she writes. “The elation on my husband’s face turned to pure terror. Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 is a genetic disorder that causes skeletal and systematic abnormalities,” she continues. “The premature fusing of the bones in the skull, sometimes resulting in ‘cloverleaf skull,’ in which the eyes are outside the sockets. The fusion of bones in the hands and feet causing a webbed or pawlike appearance … I learned all of this later.”

Amiir passed just six days later.

The former Hollywood Exes star says she’s releasing her book, The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince, now because, “I knew there was going to be a lot of stuff coming out about him, negative and positive,” she says follow the star’s death. “I wanted mine to come from love.”

    It´s very untactful and unfair to publish private items after your husband´s death. Mayte Garcia was married to Prince only four 4 years. A short time indeed!
    Nobody is able to remember today in detail what someone said or did in 1996. In my view Mrs Garcia spreads dishonest allegations in order to raise her profile, increase media interest and make money quickly.
    Prince doesn´t deserve such defamations by his malicious ex-wife. He wanted to keep private issues under lock.

Who’s Really Delusional? Charlamagne Can’t Quite Comprehend Amara La Negra’s Colorism Issues

Published

This is uncomfortable to watch.

Love & Hip Hop Miami star Amara La Negra stopped by The Breakfast Club for a chat about her life, career and experience with colorism. Unfortunately, the interview started of awkwardly when Charlamagne’s first questions was, “What are you?” You see, for whatever reason, the radio host was confused about La Negra’s Afro-Latina heritage. And while there’s nothing wrong with an honesty inquiry, it was the way he asked the question that was off-putting. But, it didn’t stop there.

Charlamange, along to co-host, DJ Envy, repeatedly asked the reality star what was her “struggle”, ignorantly assuming that colorism isn’t a thing anymore because of all the advancements in the entertainment industry that have occurred. Yet, and still, you don’t see artist of Amara’s hue celebrated on any Latina platform such as Univision or Telemundo. The host, with the exception of Angela Yee, then proceeded to deduce Amara’s issue to being a problem that’s “all in (her) head”, even referencing the success of Cardi B. as evidence of La Negra’s delusion. You have to watch this to believe it…
