Singer Prince’s Brother Duane Nelson Has Died at Age 52
On last Friday, Prince’s brother Duane Nelson died. Nelson, 52, was a former employee of his brother Prince at Paisley Park as the head of security. He was reportedly found dead in his apartment on last Friday.
Twitter respects to Duane Nelson and family came from Sheila E. Prince’s full sister Tyka Phillips stated on Twitter: “All Glory & Honor 2 God — We Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the kind words, e-mails, etc. of condolences. My brother Duane has gone to be with God — He is in a better place. Please respect our Family’s privacy at this time of mourning.”
Dunae has some run ins with the law in the 1990’s and on. Prince’s other sibling Lorna Nelson died in 2006. Prince had a rocky relationship with his brother Duane after firing him from Paisley Park and putting out a restraining order out on him.
The memorial service will be held on Saturday in Minneapolis.
