This is too sad. Tyka Nelson, Prince‘s sister, arrived at his Paisley Park estate on April 23 to pay tribute to her late brother at his memorial service just two days after his passing. Tyka, who has been diligently praising and thanking fans at Paisley Park, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for their kindness and support, had finally broken under the weight of her grief.

Our heart just breaks for Tyka, and the rest of the Nelson family. Prince died at the too-young age of 57 on April 21, and the wounds are still fresh for his loved ones. In the photo, Tyka is being driven up to the part of the Paisley Park compound where the private memorial is being held by her husband Maurice Phillips, her eyes covered by huge dark sunglasses, her head in her hands. Her hair is still dyed purple — a gesture she made in tribute to her famous brother.
Earlier on the 23rd, Prince’s staff members were seen setting up the memorial, which is expected to be an intimate affair. In the first photos of the memorial, people were seen carrying boxes, catered food, and tables into the venue, along with huge bouquets of flowers — purple, of course. People dressed in head to toe black, presumably Prince’s family members, were seen hugging and crying in the parking lot shortly before Tyka’s arrival. It’s just too unbearably sad.
Tyka is expected to inherit $800 million from her brother if rumors that he didn’t leave a will are true. Insane! Though Tyka and Prince were estranged quite some time while she struggled with drug addiction and made a living as a sex worker, their relationship improved over time, and they became closer over recent years.
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts are with Tyka and Prince’s other loved ones during this difficult time.
