      What I don’t get sometimes is why a few people I’ve come across online act seriously dumbfounded when it involves Prince and Denise. Many have stated “if Prince wanted Denise he would have taken her back”… “if he loved her so much why didn’t he marry her”… if they were soulmates or if she really was the one why didn’t he… yada yada, etc. O.o This is frowned upon and leaves me in awe. Some seem to have forgotten that it was Vanity that left Prince back in 83. Some forgot that she said she didn’t want to go back to her Hollywood days when she became Christian in the early 90s.

      Some haven’t thought about other reasons (besides the stated mess above) why the marriage between them never happened.

      True, Prince said she was connected with her spirit in 96 when he voluntarily stated why what everyone thought was going to happen didn’t happen–the marriage between him and Denise.

      I honestly think it was Denise that decided against a relationship with him after she became faithful to Christ (considering her devotion before Prince became devoted). She was already deeply devoted when he made that statement in 96.

      Take into consideration her faith versus Prince’s Jehovah’s Witness beliefs. She was in an entirely different religion (church of God and Christ) — a religion I was brought up in and I was NEVER taught that it was ok to marry outside of my religion. I’m sure Jehovah’s Witnesses have that belief about marriage as well. Imagine the religion differences alone between them.

      Assuming she didn’t want to have anything to do with the music industry as Prince was in, she may have chosen against a relationship with him (I’m just assuming). Her saying later that she would love to see him didn’t necessarily mean they weren’t communicating, her stating that she would like for God to supernaturally hook them up didn’t necessarily mean she wanted to be in a romantic relationship with him, or maybe the supernatural statement had nothing to do with a physical relationship but rather something… supernatural.

      Denise’s faith was so strong she believed God would put a new kidney in her without her going through any surgery to get a kidney that was in someone else. She didn’t want a kidney from anyone (after the failed kidney she received in surgery). I did not mention this for one to assume such faith Denise had was ill-fated but to emphasize to you just how deep her faith was in God. Please know that I don’t doubt God. I’ve always believed ANYTHING is possible through God, but I won’t just assume this supernatural hookup she was talking about had to have been in a physical sense. I don’t know, but I remember Prince saying in I think 97 that he believed his gifts to be from God and he wasn’t going to stop doing what God gifted him to do. After all, he WAS music in his eyes. His friends said he lived and breathed music… he dreamed it, etc.

      Prince’s devotion to his music and his JW beliefs versus Denise’s devotion to staying away from the industry, her religious beliefs and what she felt was right in the eyes of God wasn’t balanced between him and her and would likely have caused a serious strain on their relationship had they became a couple again. They’d already been in a strained relationship before back in the 80s–all the arguing and fighting, etc. Go through another strained relationship because of conflicting religious beliefs…? Likely a big I THINK NOT! This is enough reason to have kept them from being in a relationship. I doubt it changed that she loved Prince and that Prince loved her. I believe it was simply God before everything else between them. There’s no way I see that either one of them would have left their religion just to be with each other.

        I like this comment, and great point on a valid reason why they might not have gotten back together. Nothing to do with Prince… but Densie’s relationship with God…

          Yes. I believe this. It’s really sad in a way that they never got that chance to get married. I really do think he wanted to marry her back then as well–when he composed the lyrics to The Beautiful Ones. The mention of marriage wasn’t even part of the film but he still added it in the song to her.

            Yeah I definitely concur with you:) Denise was one of the most loving women that Prince ever came across. What about…”Mary, Clair Denise and Belle Circle of Amour” I also read that “Delirious” was about her:)

              I also knew Darling Nikki was about V. Not necessarily what Nikki was doing to P, but the name itself. I knew someone name Denise with nickname as Nikki from the N I in Denise. Also, Necie.
