Tamron Hall Mourns the Death of Her Best Friend Prince

Tamron Hall, a correspondent for MSNBC and The Today Show, is mourning the death of one of her best friends, Prince.

“We talked for hours Monday and I said he did not sound sick. He assured me he was okay,” Tamron said on The Today Show. “All Saturday he kept saying he was fine and asked me to come to Paisley to see his new piano and for a fan party. I was working and didn’t go. Monday, we exchanged emails after I sent him a video from a restaurant playing a song. I talked about how he was everywhere I go. It was a sweet moment and I had no idea it would be our last time talking. I never imagined it.”

Tamron said that she would talk to Prince on the phone until the early hours of the morning. “The only other person I spoke with or speak with more than Prince is my mother,” she said. “This is the person I communicate with more than anyone.”

“Monday I was in a restaurant and videotaped the restaurant’s ambiance music which was one of his songs,” Tamron said. “I emailed him, and I said, ‘You know you’re everywhere.’ He wrote back, ‘But nowhere at the same time… You’re thinking of me because I’m thinking of you too.’ And I never imagined again that would be my last correspondence with him.”

We continue to send out our thoughts and condolences to all of Prince‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
