Prince's former wife Mayte Garcia is preparing to launch an intimate memoir of time spent married to the pop icon next month to coincide with the anniversary of his passing. Garcia who was Prince's first wife will recount the tragedy of child loss that drove the pair apart.

Prince's marriage to Garcia took place in 1996 and lasted for four years. The book titled "The Most Beautiful: My Life With Prince," People reported is the first memoir of its kind. Garcia told the publication that since her former husband's passing and the shock of his addiction to pills, she was determined to reveal the truth about the person she came to love at a young age.

Prince was discovered following his death in an elevator at his recording studio and home in Minneapolis. Subsequently reports have revealed that the music legend died from an accidental overdose of the drug called fentanyl.

Garcia met Prince when she was 16 while the star was on tour in Germany. She told the publication she never saw the singer use drugs. However, she recalls disturbing instances when the singer would claim to be sick or having a migraine. She said as an adult she realizes now, there was more to what her husband revealed to her.

Marriage to Prince was unconventional and veers from the ordinary, the Mirror revealed. In an interview with Garcia in 2016, she told the publication that she never called the icon by his name and the two would spent countless nights together till the early hours and sleep through the day.

It was eight months to the day of their marriage that Garcia gave birth to the couple's only child -- a boy, the Daily Mail revealed. Earlier on in her pregnancy she noted that she began to bleed and required an  amniocentesis test to determine abnormalities. However, with the risk of a possible miscarriage Prince did not allow Garcia to go through with the procedure. The child was born with Pfeiffer syndrome and lived only a week.
