After asking for some time to mourn her loss, Apollonia Kotero has posted a heartfelt message about Prince.
The two dated in the '80s and were notably in the film Purple Rain together, but also remained close in the years after their breakup.

A few days following Prince's death, the 56-year-old former lead singer of Apollonia 6 honestly expressed her need for some space:
On Tuesday, April 26, she posted a lengthier message thanking everyone for their support, while promising to post more in the future:
"My dear friends and family, thank you so much for your sentiments and prayers. The love you have shown for my dear friend Prince has been my support system. Your dedication to him is profound and beyond words. Please know that during these most difficult days I have spent my time with my close friend and media consultant Elliot Mintz. He has been my guide and guardian angel as 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. Thank you for your love, understanding and patience. You are everything 2 me."
We're sending her so much prayer and positive thoughts. We can only imagine how difficult this whole week has been for her.
