“This man was my everything, we had a family. I am beyond deeply saddened and devastated,” said Garcia to People Magazine. She was his inspiration behind the song, “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” and his muse for most of the 90’s. Garcia met Prince in 1990 at a concert in Spain when she was just 16 years old.
Her mother, Janelle, also a big Prince fan passed a video of her daughter dancing to one of Prince’s backup dancers and 5 days later she received a call from Prince who hired her. She was his muse and not only was she able to dance with his Diamonds and Pearls tour, but she even recorded English and Spanish vocals for his albums.
In 1996 Prince and Mayte married on Valentine’s Day. The couple had one son together, Boy Gregory, who passed away one week after being born. The baby suffered from Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects the skull and bones in the hands and feet. The death was devastating, since they were looking forward to being parents.
