Prince's ex-wives speak out

Prince's ex-wife is "beyond deeply saddened and devastated" by his death.

The 57-year-old singer was found dead at his Paisley Park estate this morning (21.04.16) and Mayte Garcia - who he wed in 1996 - admits the iconic star was her "everything".

She told People in a statement through her manager Gladys Gonzalez: "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."

Prince and Mayte were devastated when their only child, Boy Gregory, was born with rare genetic disorder Pfeiffer syndrome and died just a week after he was born, and the singer/songwriter is taking comfort from the fact her former spouse - who she divorced in 2000 - is now with their offspring.

She added: "I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now."

Prince's second wife, Manuela Testolini - who he wed in 2001 before divorcing her five years later - is not coping well with the tragic news.

She told RadarOnline.com: "I'm not OK."

An official cause of death for the 'Beautiful Ones' singer has not yet been revealed, but he was taken to hospital with flu symptoms earlier this month.
