I hung up the phone. An employee of Prince called. I have been preparing for two years, so I knew that it was coming.”

According to Nelson, Prince hinted to her that his life was winding down. “He said it a couple of years ago: ‘I’ve done everything that I’ve come to do,'” she recalled. “I was crushed for about two years.”
