Prince’s First Wife Speaks Out – He’s With Our Son Now

Prince’s first wife Matye Garcia is no doubt one of the people hit hardest with the devastating news of the music legend’s death today.

The 42-year-old dancer was the inspiration for his hit song “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World,” and she as just released a statement about her ex-husband’s death though her manager.


“I can’t even think of the words of what I’m feeling,” she said. “This man was my everything, we had a family. I am beyond deeply saddened and devastated.”

The two wed in 1996 after meeting in 1990. Matye became one of Prince’s back up dancers and he even produced an album for her. While they were married they led a very private life and were rarely seen out in public together.


Soon after they were married they had a baby boy, Gregory who sadly died a week later from a rare genetic disease called Pfeiffer disorder.

Prince and Mayte divorced in 2000 and rarely spoke to each other after that. Their lives and careers both went in opposite directions. However Matye has always spoken fondly of her time with Prince and holds him very close to her heart.

“I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally,” she says. “He’s with our son now.”
