10 Amazing Things You Didn’t Know About Prince

Once Painted His House Purple

Prince’s association with the color purple extended to him even going as far as painting his home in purple paint and a giant love symbol. This did get him in a spot of trouble though, as his landlord, basketball star Carlos Boozer, later went on to sue the musician for carrying out unauthorized work on the property. The lawsuit was later dismissed by a judge.
