Apollonia has blasted Sheila E. on social media following the release of her Prince tribute song “Lemon Cake.” “One day I mentioned to him that I make a good chocolate and lemon cake,” Sheila E. told Billboard in an interview. “His response was, ‘Oh, I didn’t know you cooked.’ I said, ‘Of course I do. My mom being Creole and my dad Mexican, I better know how to cook.’ The next day I baked a lemon cake. It was love at first sight and one of his favorite things that we would share in the studio.” On Tuesday, the fourth anniversary of Prince’s death, CBS will air Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince, a star-studded tribute concert that Sheila E. helped put together and performed in.
“You are so desperate to be RELEVANT as the brilliant Linda Perry said,” Apollonia, another of Prince’s longtime friends and proteges who famously starred in Purple Rain, wrote on Facebook in response. “Prince refused to acknowledge you for 5 years before his death because of your lies. Your charity funds went where? Where are the music schools $$?? I was there helping you raise funds. I had your best interest at heart but later found out, the money went into your dirty pocket$. I was crestfallen. Prince scolded me! He knew better. You can’t continue to fool our Prince fans any longer. Because I AM here to tell you, it’s over. Time for the truth. My memoirs will reveal all that Prince revealed to me.”
“Prince was so angry because of all your continuous lies,” she continued. “Your bio filled with lies. He sent you legal letters as you were slandering him. I have copies and will include them in my memoirs. You need to stop using Prince in death. You need to stop using Purple Rain ☔️ as a vehicle. YOU ARE NOT ON OUR CAST LIST. Prince outed you. Prince called you HeSHe. At first I thought this was not nice. But I listened to him. I listened to all of his complaints and even then , I did not want to be in between you both. It was painful for me because I loved you both. But once he was killed, you exposed your true self. It broke my heart. He was right all along.”
“Why would you do a Purple Rain boat cruise tour $?$? in 2016?” she concluded. “Why would you sell Prince logo tshirts $$$ ? Why did you tell The Revolution April 2016 that YOU knew how Prince died BUT you could not tell them!?! Please get over yourself: YOU ARE NOT PRINCE. You will never be. You can copy his attire, try your best, but you will NEVER be Prince 👑 So get over yourself sad self and face the truth. He did not want anything to do with you for 5 years. You erased all that history by being your desperate egotistical self . Egotistical empty sad desperate for money. Money will not get you to Heaven. Time to come out and tell the truth. God forgives🙏🏽”
