      Prince’s unsealed divorce file from his second marriage shows the couple lived a luxurious lifestyle that included spending $50,000 per party after major awards ceremonies, a newspaper reported Friday.

      Records from the late “Purple Rain” megastar’s divorce from Manuela Testolini were unsealed Friday by a judge’s order.The Minneapolis Star Tribune went to court to unseal the files. Testolini objected, saying the disclosure would put her and her family at risk. Her attorney did not immediately respond to requests from The Associated Press for comment Friday.

      The files show Testolini said the couple threw lavish parties after major awards shows, like the Oscars and the Grammys with Testolini hiring a $5,000-a-day stylist to do her hair and makeup, the Star Tribune reported. The records also show the couple would spend $50,000 on food, drinks and decor for each party.

      “We had accounts at boutiques including Gucci, Versace and Valentino. We had accounts at Saks. There was never any restriction on (Prince’s) or my spending,” she said.

      The records also show that Prince locked Testolini out of their home in Chanhassen, which was not at his Paisley Park recording complex, in May 2005.

      Prince and Testolini met when she was a consultant for his charity, Love 4 One Another, the documents showed, and married on Christmas 2001. The couple’s divorce was granted in 2007.

      Prince, 57, died of an accidental painkiller overdose in April. He previously was married to backup dancer Mayte Garcia.

      Two years after their divorce, Testolini claimed Prince had not returned several personal items, including copies of videos he made based on two songs he had written for her, the records show. He also had not returned jewelry, including a Tiffany gold and diamond earring set, as well as photographs, memorabilia and scrapbooks. The items were valued at $185,000.

      Prince was representing himself at that time and did not respond to the court.

      The documents do not give financial details of the final divorce settlement. Testolini did receive a house in Toronto worth about $6 million and a Lexus automobile, the newspaper reported.

        I used to like her…I thought she was a positive force in Prince’s life but after reading this I was summarily disappointed…there is never enough money in the end…the $6 million dollar home was not sufficient for Miss Testolini she had to have the his songs, memorabilia and everything else she could get her hands on as well? Why not his publishing rights too? Make him her slave?

          lol. She got him good! She came in on a married man and married him herself… I can’t say much about her because I don’t know enough info on her, but I’m sure she knew Prince was married when she was trying to like on him.

            Yeah I can’t say she is a person I’d care to know…and the whole bit about Ms Testolini rejecting about the disclosure because it could put “…her and her family at risk..” is LOL The only thing being hurt here is her reputation!

                Wow…it’s when you read things like these that you understand why Prince is so apprehensive when it comes to people… I don’t understand how anyone can be so soulless…is money the only thing that matters? Why if I had been married to Prince I would tried my very best to stay married to him…I know that he’s a difficult man but he’s also an incredible one…I don’t think Ms. Testolini saw that she just saw the money signs $$$$$$$! It both hurts and appalls me to read about the two women he chose to marry… Why didn’t he marry Denise or Susannah?!

                    I read one of their messages to each other that was a part of the content in their divorce papers. You can tell she was all about material stuff. And then, after the discussion about him destroying the home, she suddenly had to go, and ended the conversation.

                      I hadn’t read that before! But it seems to be in tune with what has been disclosed about their divorce! I don’t think she’ll be publishing a book anytime soon with all these documents that have been shed light to.
