Alan Leeds' Explanation for Being Redacted From Prince's Appreciation List

Today, a very interesting list was posted on the Facebook page of Morris Day and The Time. Therein, Prince wrote the following:

eye would like 2 thank the following people 4 their contributions 2 my ongoing musical and spiritual development: Prince

He lists over 80 people. The most glaring thing, however, was the one name that he scratched through: Alan Leeds.

Leeds added the following comment to the post:

Hey folks....don't read into this. I think I had been included by mistake - there are NO management on this list whatsoever, from any era, these are all artists or celebs of some sort.

In a subsequent post, Leeds jokingly added:

Maybe Morris crossed me off, LOL


What if anything should we read into Prince's redaction of Leeds' name? Thoughts?

That list has today become the one list to have been on. Lol. The people who made it on the list feel somewhat smug I bet.." hey, I made it on Prince's list
bitches."

Madge is not on it.

As for Alan I guess eric is right.

No date is listed. That bit of information would be helpful. This might be one clue. Rapper and actress Eve is included on the list. We do know that she was featured on Prince's 1999 album "Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic." So, it was probably after that time.
