Prince's friend confirms Charlie Murphy's basketball story

Finally, we have the answer to the question America has been wanting to know. Did Prince play Charlie Murphy in a pick-up hoops game?

In a new interview with The Undefeated, Prince's friend Mikki Free states “Everything in that skit is true,” said Free, a Grammy Award-winning songwriter who was a member of Shalamar in the 1980s. "I played in that game. And Prince was Steph Curry all [expletive]night!...we had on ‘blouses,’ and frilly shirts,” Free said. “The same clothes we had at the club. Prince played in 6-inch heels!”.
