On April 21, a devastating news item broke: Music icon Prince was found dead on Thursday morning. Celebrities, fans, and the President of the United States have mourned the loss of the “When Doves Cry” artist, and the list of the bereaved includes Prince’s second wife, Manuela Testolini.
When asked how she is coping with the death of her ex-husband, Testolini reportedly told Radar Online that she is “not okay.”Testolini and the Purple Rain star were married from 2001 to 2006.
I always thought she must be very pretty in person.She not only supports a few foundations, but also started Altru, a fragrance company that directly benefitted the The In A Perfect World Foundation.Testolini is the president and founder of TIAPWF, which, according to the site’s mission statement, is “a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering the next generation by creating and supporting programs that provide education, mentoring and artistic expression to underserved and at-risk youth around the world.”Testolini has since remarried: She and singer Eric Benét tied the knot in 2011, and the couple welcomed daughter Amoura Luna in 2014.Testolini says she reached out to the 57-year-old legendary musician because she wanted to tell him about her new project."I just reached out to him a few days ago to let him know that I was building a school in his honor," she continues."My heart aches that the school will now be built in his memory." Fans across the country have been paying tribute to the late singer with dance parties, memorials and more, but nothing will fill the void he left behind with his untimely death."His passing leaves me with such a devastating feeling of pain and loss.When I see her in that extra curly hair and relaxed fitting clothes I wonder how much of her true self she cut off in order to land her dream man. I think he got child support too b/c Halle adopted his daughter.
