Mayte Garcia announced her “intimate” tell-all memoir about her life and four-year marriage to Prince will be released in April 2017, near the one-year anniversary of the musician’s death.
The book, entitled ‘The Most Beautiful,’ will chronicle Garcia’s relationship with the singer and their marriage from 1996 to 1999, including details about the painful loss of their son in 1996. The story will span “[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,” publisher Hachette said in a statement.
“Prince was loved the world over but few knew him intimately,” Garcia said. “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.”
Prince died on April 21st of a dug overdose of the painkiller Fentanyl. The singer’s body was found in his home at Paisley Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was 57.
