According to The Wrap, Prince’s First wife, Mayte Garcia’s best-selling memoir, “The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince,” is set to be adapted into a biographical film by Crazy Legs Features. The book, released in early 2017, provides a unique look into the life of the iconic musician, Prince, through the eyes of his first wife, Mayte Garcia.
Mayte Garcia’s memoir recounts her relationship with Prince, which began when she was 16 years old and he was 32. After a four-year courtship, during which Prince became her legal guardian, they married in 1996. Tragically, their son, born in 1996, passed away shortly after birth due to Pfeiffer syndrome type 2, which contributed to the dissolution of their marriage in 2000.
The memoir derives its title from Prince’s song, “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World,” which he wrote for Mayte in 1994. The book offers an intimate portrayal of their relationship, from its inception backstage at a concert to its development into a deep artistic and personal connection.
Mayte Garcia expressed her sentiments to The Wrap about the project: “Prince is one of our generation’s most electrifying, charismatic, and enigmatic personalities.”
Tom Cappello, CEO of Crazy Legs Productions, stated, “We are honored that Mayte has chosen us to bring her moving, candid memoir to life and provide a rare insight into an artist who touched the lives of millions worldwide.”
Gilbert Davison, an associate producer for the project, added a personal touch, having been a friend of Prince and later his personal manager. He now represents Mayte Garcia and other musicians.
Mayte Garcia remarked, “Crazy Legs is a perfect partner to bring this deeply personal reflection of my life with Prince to the screen. This film will provide an intimate look at the man I loved, our life together, and his lasting influence.”
This project promises to offer a revealing and intimate portrait of Prince, shedding light on the life of the legendary musician and his impact on the world.
