Okay, it’s time we did this! What does everyone think about Sharon Nelson’s opinion that Denise was the love of Prince’s life? I personally think she found out something recently that makes her think this way. I’d love to know what it was. Your thought?September 8, 2017 at 12:54 am #3791
I read this on LSA. I believe Sharon said it for a reason. After all, it’s Prince’s sister–someone who knows more about his personal life than us fans. What she didn’t know directly from Prince most certainly could have went around from one family member to another as well. Meaning, it’s possible another family member could have told her, too. What I believe? I believe she truly believes it, herself and did not just throw it out there for fans or just because people tend to associate Vanity with Prince. One thing for certain, Denise was living a Christian life for quite a long time. It’s not like people saw them together later in these past few years and made assumptions. If you were to believe the org, you’d think Denise was a hit and run from the 80s. No fan knew how long her and Prince communicated after the 80s. This takes me back to Prince’s statement about “everyone thought I was going to marry Vanity” in the 90s to Jet Magazine. As I’ve said on prince.org, why would Prince say “everyone” if these people that were close to him didn’t know he cared for Denise enough to want to marry her or how much he cared about Denise? I believe his sister knew just how much Denise meant to Prince for her to put that statement out to the world. This was an official Q&A for her on the org, right? I don’t question her statement as to if it was true. She believes it for a reason. She knows something we don’t for her to boldly state her opinion. I guarantee you my brothers would not go around and tell people that a certain person I use to be involved with is the love of my life if they didn’t even know enough about my love life to begin with. Denise stated that they were communicating but she hadn’t seen him in years. So they weren’t dating anymore by that time. So why would Sharon think and boldly, publicly state, after all those years that Denise and Prince wasn’t together, that Denise was the love of Prince’s life? Simple… she believed it for a reason. Maybe, just maybe Prince told her from his own lips.

Yup, I totally agree. I understand that she might not have been around in recent years, (no one knows that for certain though) but I think she has a valid reason for saying what she said. She could have heard something, saw something, maybe even read the few pages of his memoirs. Maybe when she was closer to Prince in the past he told her something as well, and who knows for sure if she wasn’t in contact with him in recent years. Maybe she was. Prince was trying to make amends with everyone. I believe that she found something out about them….

And the memoir, I sure hope they choose to release what he did complete. I would be shocked if Vanity wasn’t mentioned in it with the few pages he did complete.
Yes, the fact that he decided to write that memoir after she passed and call it “The Beautiful Ones” – A song he said she inspired, is powerful. And you are right about the Org. When it was first announced, they were literally begging people not to talk about it!! lol.. Pathetic!

I wouldn’t be surprised if OF4S tried to eject Denise from Sharon’s statement and say something along the lines of… “He was mad at Susannah when he said Denise was the love of his life” Smh… I go by and lurk every now and then just to be sure Denise is still being discussed.November 16, 2017 at 5:08 pm #4152

hmmm I have a question for you…have you read her memoir? Did she mention Prince? He certainly seemed to stay in touch with her…that seems to speak volumes to me! It is awful that he never finished his memoir…I wonder what Tyka has to say about his in her book! She knew him the best in my opinion…they grew up together for the most part.
