Patricia Kotero, better known as Apollonia from the 1984 film Purple Rain, fresh off of mourning in Minnesota alongside Prince’s closest friends and family members, finally mustered the strength to break her silence to the media, (who have been after her to share her Prince stories to the world). The actress/director and timeless beauty sent a heartfelt message about her mentor and close friend saying:

“I want to honor and continue to have the greatest respect for Prince and his preference for privacy. When I am ready and it’s appropriate I will share with you all that is in my heart and all that is my truth.”

Having been the lead singer in the girl group Apollonia 6, replacing Denise Matthews aka Vanity in Vanity 6, they hit the charts with ‘Sex Shooter’ in 1984 and ‘Take me with you’, a duet she did with Prince in 1985.

Apollonia Kotero reportedly stayed close to the purple one throughout the years and was one of Prince’s closet confidants.
