Prince’s Ex-Wife Manuela Testolini Building Is School In His Memory

Manuela Testolini is “heartbroken beyond words” by the passing of her ex-husband Prince, but she plans to honor him in a very special way.

In an exclusive interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Manuela, who married the music icon one year after his divorce from Mayte Garcia, says Prince was a “fierce philanthropist,” who encouraged her to start her own charity.

She had plans to build a school in his honor. Now, it will be in his memory.

Prince and I had a magical journey together and I loved him immensely. I knew him as a husband, friend and fierce philanthropist. Philanthropy brought us together and it was Prince that encouraged me to start my own charity over 10 years ago.

I just reached out to him a few days ago to let him know that I was building a school in his honor. My heart aches that the school will now be built in his memory.

What a beautiful way to honor Prince.

Manuela Testolini and Prince divorced in 2006. She is now married to R&B singer, Eric Benét.
