Morris Day is calling out Prince’s estate and accusing them of blocking him from performing as part of Morris Day and the Time.
Day, who was a childhood friend of the late legend, took to his Instagram to explain the issues he has been facing with the estate.
He wrote, “I’ve given 40 years of my life building up a name and legacy that Prince and I came up with. A name that while he was alive, he had no problem with me using. I literally put my blood, sweat, and tears into bringing value to that name. In fact, he booked me on several tours and may jam-packed nights at Paisley Park, under the name Morris Day & The Time.”
Day continued, “Not once ever saying to me that I couldn’t use that name configuration. However, now that Prine is no longer with us, suddenly, the people who control his multi-million dollar estate, want to rewrite history by taking my name away from me, thus impacting how I feed my family. So as of now, per the Prince Estate, I can longer use Morris Day & The Time in any capacity.”
Reps from Prince’s Estate have not responded to Morris Day’s claims yet.
