The last meal Ray Roberts prepared for Prince was roasted red pepper bisque and a kale salad. When he entered Paisley Park that night, he was told he could just leave the meal and go.
"Whatever was going on with him that night, he clearly wanted to be alone," said Roberts. Typically, the artist was jovial and his home and recording studio was a joyful, light-filled, and fun place to be.
By the following morning, Roberts would discover that Prince never did eat that dinner. By now we all know why.
"He didn't seem like his normal self that night. He'd been like that for months."
