Prince defintely had a lot of influence on the world, and even the women he loved. MStars News has learned that the late singer's second ex-wife, Manuela Testolini is mourning the loss of her ex and will be building a school in honor of her late ex-husband.

Now married to Eric Benet, Testolini revealed that she spoke to Prince before he died on Thursday, April 21 and claimed that she was working on building a school to honor Prince, which will now be a school of memory to the singer.

Sharing an image of their past romance, Testolini wrote: "From our Founder: Prince and I had a magical journey together and I loved him immensely. The world knew him as a musical genius - I knew him as a husband, friend and fierce philanthropist. Philanthropy brought us together and it was Prince who encouraged me to start my own charity over 10 years ago," Testolini claimed.

"I just reached out to him a few days ago to let him know that I was building a school in his honor. My heart aches that the school will now be built in his memory. His passing leaves me with such a devastating feeling of pain and loss. The love we shared, the music he made, and our life together is forever engraved in my heart & I will always love & respect him. I am heartbroken beyond words," she finished.

Testolini was married to Prince from 2001 until 2006. Prince was married to his backup dancer, Mayte Garcia before tying the knot with Testolini. The singer and Garcia divorced after never getting over the death of their son, Boy Gregory.

Testolini married Halle Berry's ex, Eric Benet in 2011. The couple have two daughters together: Amoura Luna Benet, and Lucia Bella Benet.

Benet also mourned the death of Prince. He posted a series of photos via Instagram to remember the icon, sending prayers to the singer's family and city of Minneapolis.

 Prayers to the family in Minneapolis… And the world.
