With Prince's Financial Implications
Earlier this week, Prince’s older half-brother, Alfred Jackson, told reports that the 55-year-old actor “has helped us out tremendously, and we’re extremely grateful.”
“I assisted the brothers that were in need at that particular moment,” he said.
Lopez was by himself in Columbus, Ohio, when he found out that Prince had died unexpectedly at
“It wasn’t an easy day or weekend,” he admitted, noting that he eventually had Eddie Murphy’s brother, Charlie Murphy, around to help him cope.
Lopez also shared a story similar to the one he would later tell during the memorial service -- about how The Purple One inadvertently effected his former talk show, Lopez Tonight.
“The art director came over and said 'Prince wants the green room painted white.' It was this nasty green,” he explained.
“So I said, ‘Well if he wants it painted white, then paint it white!’ They took all the furniture out, they painted it white, they brought in some white couches, some white carpet -- and it wasn’t him, it was me.”
Lopez later told Prince that he got the room painted just for him, to which he apparently replied, “You did?!... it's beautiful now, but thank you.”
