However, the relationship between the duo broke up after three years of dating. As posted by people.com on 17th November 2003, when talking about the relationship after the break up the lady said:
“I was in love or infatuation,I just thought he was beautiful.When we split three years later, my heart was shattered.”
As reported by Contact Music.com on 8th May 2003, she further revealed about being unknown to the man despite being in a relationship with the Prince for years. She said:
"I never really knew him, and I never let him really know me. I tried to be this woman I thought he wanted - very passive, letting him lead. He told a friend of mine he was going to marry me and take care of me. I knew I wouldn't get anything better than that from him, so I believed it."
She did not speak only about how she felt but also disclosed how the man had proposed Mayte Garcia, a belly dancer cum actress in front of huge crowd in a concert. She said:
"After that, we were in New York, and he asked me to come see his show. Mayte, one of his dancers, flashed the engagement ring he'd given her from the stage. When I asked him about it afterward, he was very evasive and defensive. I haven't spoken to him since. It upsets me that we ended things that way because at one point he was really, really important to me."
Well, that must be hard for the lady to see her man propose another woman right in front of her eyes. It might have left her shattered to she her man go away from her life at once whom she had expected to get married someday.
