Prince'south ex-wife said Thursday she was "devastated" by the musician'south shocking death.

Mayte Garcia, who reportedly was the inspiration for his one thousand nine hundred ninety-four song "The Most Pretty Girl in the World," told PEOPLE that the she'll like Prince "eternally" and that the artist was reunited with their lost son.

"I can't even think of the words of what I'm feeling," Garcia told PEOPLE in a statement through her manager. "This man was my everything, we'd a family. I'm beyond deeply saddened and devastated."

Garcia met Prince as a teenager in one thousand nine hundred-ninetieth and worked as a dancer on one of his tours. The pair married in one thousand nine hundred ninety-sixth, when she was twenty-two and he was thirty-seven.
