Prince's ex-wife Mayte Garcia claims the singer burned their late son's ashes.

The 43-year-old dancer's son Amiir passed away at six-days-old in 1996 after being born with rare genetic disorder Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 and Mayte has claimed the 'Purple Rain' hitmaker - who died in April 2016 from an accidental Fentanyl overdose - asked his assistant to burn the ashes of their late son in a bid to "cauterise this deep wound he couldn't close".

Writing in her memoir, 'The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince', she shared: "In some sad, painful moment, he had it all burned, as if fire could cauterise this deep wound he couldn't close. I wasn't there to witness it, and I can't bear to think about it now."

Meanwhile, Mayte previously admitted she doesn't think Prince ever got over their son's death.

She said: "I don't think he ever got over it. I don't know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven't."

Amiir was born via caesarian section and Mayte had to watch on as Prince's face went from "pure joy" to "pure terror".

She recalled: "I don't know how to describe the look on my husband's face. Pure joy. And then they held the baby up to those harsh lights. The elation on my husband's face turned to pure terror.

"Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 is a genetic disorder that causes skeletal and systematic abnormalities. The premature fusing of the bones in the skull, sometimes resulting in 'cloverleaf skull,' in which the eyes are outside the sockets. The fusion of bones in the hands and feet causing a webbed or pawlike appearance ... I learned all of this later.

"They brought the baby over to us. He was curled on his side, gasping shallow little gulps of air. Because there were no lids to blink, his eyes looked startled and dry. I caught hold of his tiny hand, saying over and over, 'Mama loves you, Mama's here.'"

Like so many famous rock stars before him, Prince was unable to control his addiction to prescription drugs, and it finally cost him his life.

Earlier today (June 2), federal authorities announced that the late “Raspberry Beret” singer overdosed on Percocet on April 21st, just before he was supposed to meet with an addiction specialist.

He was arguably one of the most influential artists of his generation, but that doesn’t mean the late, great Prince didn’t have a little fun at the expense of his fellow celebrities.

In a recently recovered Rolling Stone interview from 2014, the “Purple Rain” hitmaker took aim at Justin Bieber, as well as the pop music industry overall.

Continuing the investigation into the untimely death of pop star Prince , Carver County police have secured a search warrant that will allow them access to his Minnesota home.

According to the documents, the cops will keep the contents of the warrant confidential to avoid “premature disclosure of the details provided in the search warrant and its accompanying documents as they may compromise this law enforcement investigation by causing the search or related searches to be unsuccessful."

Given his massive success and ample wealth, it’s hard to believe that the late great Prince never drew up a will to divide up his assets after his death.

The “Purple Rain” singer’s sister Tyka Nelson filed legal documents this week claiming that her brother’s affairs were not in order and hence she would begin attempting to put things right.
