I have a lot of great memories but the one that made me laugh was there was one night where I got a call at about 3 am in the morning and he wanted breakfast for 14 people. I was the only butler on duty during that graveyard shift. He asked for 14 omelets and 14 orders of pancakes. I called everyone in the casino and had all the cooks running to make this order while I made the table. I had to serve the whole breakfast at now 4am in the morning by myself. I came up with the two carts full of food trying to plate it as fast as I can when Prince stood up from his chair and walked over to my cart. He grabbed a plate of pancakes and started helping me serve. I couldn't help but to laugh from the Charlie Murphy story on the Dave Chappelle show. This was my favorite moment...ever.

Just the piano. One early evening he ordered pizza which he wanted to eat during a movie. I got him pizza from the casino and as I was clearing off the coffee table one of his guitar picks was there. I picked it up and asked him where I should place it, he responded in his deep voice "You can keep it". So I did and I gave it to my dad as a gift, the pick had his logo on it and it was white and purple.

The breakfast story was the craziest for me but I remember after he won his Golden Globe for Happy Feet it was in his room but in an odd place. I was in the room with my manager and I looked at it and said wow, I am actually looking at a Golden Globe, my manager laughed and asked me if I could guess why it was in an odd place on an oak table in the room. I didn't know so he lifted it up and there was a burn mark from a candle which Prince caused one night. He was using the Golden Globe to cover up room damage, which is hilarious.

Every joke made about Prince's mannerisms are all true, the jokes on SNL to Dave Chappell. He would talk to me directly if it was just him and I alone, but when he had guests over he would have someone ask me questions or requests, never him directly when people were there. He was a night owl, often stay up till 3 or 4am and wake up at 12pm. He loved pizza and Pinot Grigio wine. Never in a baseball hat or tee-shirt, always dressed to impress. He was well mannered and spoke in a deep profound voice. Never once did he yell or curse at any of us. He was shy but he had this glow to his personality and that is why I think so many people loved him. For a guy who is 5 foot tall he would have girlfriends 6 feet tall and more than one. He was very spiritual and always spoke about his love for God, he prayed with every meal. It was an honor for me to know him the little time that I did.
He had other female signers with him and some basketball players like Magic Johnson. At dinners he would often give sermons and preached to them, he was a Jehovah Witness. One of the Spice Girls was always there...the tall one.
Never did I suspect any drugs. He enjoyed nice wines here and there and Patron but no red flags for me.
We had to change things in his room like his All Seeing Eye above the door to his exit/entrance of his villa. We ripped up tile so we can put in new tile that had his logo on it. Removed all furniture and he had a round bed and beautiful curtains around it. He wanted us to re-paint the room but we didn't. Large Piano in the living room and some of his paintings on the wall. He was eccentric.
