The former Hollywood Exes star said she has been urged to write a book for years, because, “Prince was loved the world over but few knew him intimately. And ours was a rare, almost otherworldly connection. I want to share our love story, and with it the highs and lows, always coming from a loving place, as this man is still part of my family and always will be.” The Most Beautiful is set to be released in April 2017 – to mark the one-year anniversary of Prince‘s death.

The press release from Hachette Books:
“In THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, Garcia, for the first time, shares the richly detailed and deeply personal story of her LIFE and her relationship with Prince: from their unconventional meeting backstage at a concert (and the long-distance romance that followed), to their fairy-tale wedding (and their groundbreaking artistic partnership), to the devastating loss of their children that ultimately dissolved their romantic relationship for good.
Through it all, they shared a partnership unlike any other in Prince’s life. No one else can tell this singular story or provide a deeper, more nuanced portrait of Prince, both the famously private man and the pioneering, beloved artist, than Mayte, who was with him during some of the most pivotal moments of his personal and professional life. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL (the title of which is inspired by Prince’s 1995 hit song “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World,” which celebrated their legendary love story) draws from never-before-seen letters, photos, and memorabilia.”
A spokesperson for Hachette Books added, “We’re incredibly fortunate to have Mayte share her deeply personal story about the mind and life of someone we think of as an icon – but whom she knew as a friend, collaborator, and the love of her life.”
Prince‘s fans could go either way with this – some fans will appreciate Mayte for sharing their story and her memories and will read the book. On the flip side, some fans will accuse Mayte of trying to capitalize off his death (especially with the book being released near the one year anniversary mark) and will lash out and will definitely not read the book.
