I don't think those post are hateful, they are somewhat true. My grandfather past in Feb., I got 3 days off for the funeral. We had agreed to host his family reunion here. So in between my grief, anger and life in general I had to plan a family reunion. So I get that it can be tough, but you have to find a way or get with the right people to make it work. Dealing with us(Prince Fam) can be just as challengeing as dealing with blood relatives.

Tyka must also understand that at times we will question the things she do{like we questioned Prince}-I question the $250 meet and greet at the Dance party...Does that make me mean and hateful???

Also, because we know that she is not in control, as of today, we know she doesn't have the final say. I figured that out waiting for the tribute to go down. If she had said that or even eluded to the fact that she is not the only one working maybe people wouldn't be so hard on her.


It depends how you do it. Frankly, there's really nothing to bitch about with respect to this because no one is making you pay that amount. There are lower-priced tickets - or you could just stay home.

And, yes - what did Prince charge for a meet and greet?

Not complaining-imo its not a good look. Just my opinion I got the $31.21 tix so I'm good.

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

While "his body was still warm"? WTF are you talking about? He was creamated 30 hours or so after he was found dead (and at that point he had already reportedly been dead 6 hours) -- and AFTER a four-hour autopsy had been completed! His body was FAR from warm and there is literally nothing shady about having him cremated at that point.

Did you consider that perhaps she didn't want his body lingering around because she wanted to avoid the possibilty of post-mortem photos sneaking out somehow (like MJ's did) to eager "fams"? I would have done the same as her.

Not a good look? Then everyone who uses tiered pricing for any kind of event looks bad. Which is 100% of the people who do events.

I know! Right?



If Prince's younger sister is anything like my younger sister, the only thing she would be saying to "the fams" is something along the lines of...



as slimphuk Natasha rodrรญguez would say:

I think she did it because she knew that if she had buried him instead of cremating him, then all these religiously fanatical "disciples" would be permanently camped out around Prince's grave waiting on their knees for a messianic "resurrection".

disbelief Good luck Tyka, you're doing the best u can, that's all anyone can do. I dread 2 think of the massive amount of work & responsibilities that have fallen into your lap. All the changes & challenges whilst you are grieving. butterfly

All you have to do is read the hateful, insensitive posts above yours to give you an idea of the venom Tyka has endured since she lost her brother.

Perhaps spending less time on the internet, reading what people think of her, is in order? I mean... if you're 'busy'. Hell, I'm so spun around by today's "don't think / just do" business culture, I can't tell you what's on TV these days or what's a great new song that's out there. Perhaps she should rethink her capacity and role - she may be the best person to make decisions, and let others 'do'. All said w/love.

And there it is....the million dollar question
Thanks for the laughs, arguments and overall enjoyment for the last umpteen years. It's time for me to retire from Prince.org and engage in the real world...lol. Above all, I appreciated the talent Prince. You were one of a kind.

Man - if Prince were alive I bet he'd be pissed at all the people giving his family a hard time. I understand that everyone just is looking out for what they think is justice for Prince and they need to realize that Tyka might not have all the answers yet herself. This is likely a hugely complicated situation and we shouldn't speculate at all on it and judge her for our perceived inactivity or suspicion.

.

The dude was private enough that we'd probably know even LESS if he was in charge of *his own* funeral. On top of that people on here thinking they are owed something BY PEOPLE THEY HAVE NEVER MET IN REGARD TO A PERSON THEY DID NOT KNOW PRIVATELY need to take a step back and get their delusion goggles off.

.

I mean damn - if I was famous and then died and some asshole who didn't know me started giving my family a harder time than they were already enduring I swear to god I'd come back from the dead to go back hand them in the face and then I'd majestically evaporate back into the ether.

Edit: And even then I bet my said 'fans' would complain that while resurrected I didn't give them an autograph.

at the end of the day she and her siblings could have said 'fuck the fans, what do we care, we
have enough to deal with. get a lawyer in here to broker the best possible deal for this estate,
agree on the sum and sell it'.

they didn't. they're being accomodating. it remains to be seen if this whole museum thing is a
lucrative deal for the estate in the long run. but it seems those were prince's wishes and she's
seen to them this far.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

This.

Some people need to put themselves in Prince's shoes and then read some of the crap posted on this forum. Is it any wonder Prince was so private? Some seriously self-entitled obsessive types here. The type you would not want as a fan. Scary.

Hi, Please understand that I'm Doing The VERY Best I Can! Don't 4 Get I've Lost from this Earth someone I've been with All My Life...He Loves U and I Will Make Sure My WONDERFUL Brother/Friend/Man/Musician/Entertainer and Son of GOD! WILL Remain Accessible 2 the Ones Who Loved him 2 Prince Lives... Eternally ~Tyka

I sometimes need to remind myself that while I lost an artist I loved dearly Tyka lost a brother. Even if they didn't always have the best relationship they were FAMILY and they loved each other. The fans are important but it's not just about the fans. I'm sure she is doing the best she can right now. ๐Ÿ’œ


With all due respect, must call b.s.



Given the utter Slew of legal, administrative, business folks, and their underlings retained by her and others to be paid in specified billable minutes for what they're claiming to be doing on Prince's dime on her behalf and on behalf of the other beneficiaries, there should be/is very minimal being asked of her, frankly.



However, such clients who have never functioned consistently in this world with any structured work ethic, nor ever even been self-sufficient in meeting their own most basic, real world, daily demands financially as others must, anything would be "overwhelming."



Those who loved him do know this is not "the very best" folks can do on any level, and hasn't been from the beginning. If anything, true grief would push you to function harder.



















Wow. How very disrespectful & non-compassionate, never mind judgmental.
Sounds like you have a resentment against people who you consider to be lazy compared to wonderfully effective you.

You have no idea what Tyka's story is. But if you knew it, you would feel nothing but love and understanding for her.

I think she has been incredibly loving and strong throughout this whole ordeal - and MANAGING all those hired people and making constant final decisions and being sure they have her brother's and his loved ones best interest at heart in a very greedy world, and then trying to keep all of us happy AND dealing with people who say things like you've said...man. It's got to be a monstrous task.

She's a class act and has been all along. Plus, she loves her brother AND God.

She has my full support, respect and understanding.
