Mayte Garcia has revealed how sex between the pair was always "very tender and attentive" and admitted the couple even got intimate to one of this own tracks.

Asked how it was between them, she said: "Very, very tender. I can't say for all the other women. For me, it was always very tender and attentive and sweet. Even though I danced on stage with handcuffs, there was never any of that."

And Mayte admits Prince had two personalities - the "insatiable sex thing" and a kind, loving boyfriend.

She added to The Times magazine: "I saw the boyfriend. Nothing crazy. Loving. Respectful. I was held high on this pedestal, and I liked it."

Meanwhile, Mayte previously confessed she doesn't think her ex-husband ever got over the death of their son Amiir, who passed away in 1996 at just six-days-old after he was born with rare genetic disorder Pfeiffer syndrome type 2.

She said: "I don't think he ever got over it. I don't know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven't."

And Mayte recently claimed the singer burned their late son's ashes.

Writing in her memoir, 'The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince', she shared: "In some sad, painful moment, he had it all burned, as if fire could cauterise this deep wound he couldn't close. I wasn't there to witness it, and I can't bear to think about it now."

Amiir was born via caesarian section and Mayte had to watch on as Prince's face went from "pure joy" to "pure terror".

She recalled: "I don't know how to describe the look on my husband's face. Pure joy. And then they held the baby up to those harsh lights. The elation on my husband's face turned to pure terror.

"Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 is a genetic disorder that causes skeletal and systematic abnormalities. The premature fusing of the bones in the skull, sometimes resulting in 'cloverleaf skull,' in which the eyes are outside the sockets. The fusion of bones in the hands and feet causing a webbed or pawlike appearance ... I learned all of this later.

"They brought the baby over to us. He was curled on his side, gasping shallow little gulps of air. Because there were no lids to blink, his eyes looked startled and dry. I caught hold of his tiny hand, saying over and over, 'Mama loves you, Mama's here.'"
