I would just as soon avoid the topic out of respect for them and focus on Prince the musician, whom I respect profoundly.
As a recent resident of the Twin Cities, I'd like to report that, according to everyone I know who has had any contact with him, Prince is well beyond quirky. He ranges from rude to bizarre.
That said, his family tragedy is not really something the rest of us need to know about. The poor child died, which is bad enough for any parent, without weird speculation on God knows what you were insinuating.
Also, just as an aside, an an example of quirky, Prince lets people come sit in his living room when he's in the mood. Friday at midnight, if he wants, he'll open the doors and any devoted fans who are sitting outside (and there're always a few) can come in, drink soft drinks, eat peanuts, and listen to Prince and his band jam, practice, and make music. I know a couple people who have done this, and they say the man is a guitar god.
