The brothers and sisters of Prince have sent out a statement saying that their was no official memorial at Paisley Park for Prince two days after his death and that an announcement is coming soon about a public memorial.
According to reports, there was a service attended by many family members at his home after Prince was cremated; however, since that time, there was some controversy from family members who say they were not invited.
Whether the gathering at Paisley Park was a simple remembrance or there is a bit of relabeling going on to appease the snubbed isn’t known; however, there are plans for a public memorial at some time in the near future.
We would like everyone to know that, contrary to previous and current reports, there has been no memorial, funeral or tribute service for Prince that was organized or authorized by the family or Paisley Park representatives. Together, the family is planning an official memorial service and public event to take place in the near future. Prince and his music influenced so many people that we feel inspired to celebrate his life and legacy in just the right way. We appreciate the public’s patience and have been comforted by your outpouring of love, support and condolences. We look forward to sharing with the world this celebration of, and farewell to, our Prince. Details will be coming soon.
