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 "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.
