Prince's sisters are having a full on feud about whether or not purple was his favourite colour


PRINCE AND PURPLE. The two go together like peanut butter and jam or Bert and Ernie.

Yes, the late musical icon is synonymous with the colour purple, but his sister has recently stirred the pot and claimed that orange was in fact his favourite colour.

Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson spoke to the Evening Standard ahead of a memorabilia auction and stated that Prince favoured orange over purple.


The stand out piece for me is his orange Cloud guitar. It is strange because people always associate the colour purple with Prince, but his favourite colour was actually orange.
People were shaken to their core.


On Thursday, Prince’s other sister, Sharon Nelson, decided to wade in on the controversy and issued a statement to the Associated Press in which she stated that “contrary to what has been said, purple was and is Prince’s color”.

She added that Prince was “was fond of many colors in the rainbow, he especially loved the color purple because it represented royalty”.

…the color purple always made him feel Princely.

To recap: Prince’s sisters are feuding about what his favourite was.

What a time to be alive.
