Prince was married in Hawaii on New Year’s Eve, to girlfriend Manuela Testolini. Testolini, 25, is 18 years younger than Prince (43). According to reports by KMSP-TV, Testolini-a former employee at Prince’s Paisley Park Studios-and the singer tied the knot in a small Jehovah’s Witness ceremony. When LAUNCH contacted two separate representatives of Prince, both responded with “No comment.”
This is the second marriage for Prince. In February of 1996 while using the name the Artist (formerly known as Prince), Prince married then back-up dancer Mayte. Later that year, the couple’s one-week old son died after being born with a fatal skull condition, clover lead syndrome. The two eventually divorced in 2000. Since that time, Mayte has been paired with rocker Tommy Lee of Motley Crue fame.
