*Morris Day has been opening up lately about his music career in the early 80’s and working relationship with the late-great Prince.

Day is reportedly a member of a two-person band and a social media star, and he’s the only one of Morris’ kids pursuing and succeeding in the music business.

After Morris and Judith spit, the singer married a woman named Lorena and they are still going strong and raising their own kids.

In recent interviews, Morris has dished about how his family were influential in his career.

We previously reported, Day has released a memoir in which he recounts the tension on the set of “Purple Rain” between himself and the late-great Prince.

In the book, “On Time: A Princely Life in Funk” (Da Capo), Day outlines his tumultuous friendship with the artist, and blames the music legend’s ego trips for much of the turmoil on the set of the 1984 music drama. Day even recalls the time they nearly came to blows during production.

Day claims Prince was in “macho mode” during the making of “Purple Rain,” as he wanted to silence reports that he was effeminate. Day writes, “I know the humiliation remained in his mind.” So the Minneapolis-born singer created a confident character that dressed in black leather, rode a Harley and seduced super hottie Apollonia.
