“When people find out that I’m Prince‘s ex-wife, sometimes they can’t believe it, or sometimes they just can’t believe, wow, you’re normal. People think that we’re weird. We’re not weird, we’re just artistic,” Hollywood Exes star Mayte Garcia explains in the clip above.
She started her career in showbiz at the age of eight when she was the world’s youngest professional belly dancer, and she met Prince at 16, thanks to her mother’s persistence and attempts to get her a job as one of his dancers. They married six years later, and enjoyed a pretty normal life together, it wasn’t until after they were divorced that she experienced the culture shock of life as a single woman. Though she was briefly engaged to Tommy Lee, Mayte is currently single and living with her mom in Los Angeles, and she’s on the hunt for a new man…preferably not one in the music industry.
Hollywood Exes premieres Wednesday, June 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
