Kim Berry's Diamonds and Curlz book

Just to let people know, it seems they are shipping the book again.

I canceled my order through Paypal and got a refund 2 months ago after trying to contact her to no reply.
But suddenly my canceled order arrived yesterday, so a free (altho shitty) book lol

Is there any new information about Prince that we may be interested in? How much does the book cost? (I know u got yours 4 free) I don't want to buy it, I'm just curious.

I payd $51,99 that's including shipping to the Netherlands through Paypal but got that refunded when I canceled it. I havent read the book yet but there's an older thread that has some info:

It's gossip garbage. She paints him in horrible light filtered through her own lies. It's poorly formatted and full of errors. Save your money.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Yes. There IS information, and her perspective of being around him. It's worth the read.

I am sorry people are so unkind to Kim, because i would like her to continue with her books. I especially want to know about the last part of Prince;s life, or when she last was around him, did he change? What things? What was he like? That's what I want to know. I appreciated her being willing to put herself out there.

I mean, it's your opinion but I want to answer your question as to why people are so "unkind" to Kim. First of all, people are honest, I don't think that's unkind. She disrespected not only Prince, but his mother too. How will we ever know if what she said is true? ( I doubt one of his siblings will say anything about it). She portrait Prince in a very bad light, she tried to auction off his socks and hair and used pics without the consent of Steve Parke.

She badmouthed Mayte's mum too, although I personally can imagine that these stories are true but still, how did she believe it's her right to tell all these stories? Even IF half of it is true. This book is certainly NOT what she told us before she published it.

She's being trashed for a good reason. She said she's talking about Prince behind the courtain, the loving husband and father but where did she portrait him in this light? She acted like she was the only saint person in his life.

She talked about stuff and people when it really isn't her place to do so.

And doesn't it seem she keeps extending the time she was doing Prince's hair?

She also screwed people out of their books that they already bought. Amazon even had a disclaimer on her book and wouldn't sell it for awhile...I haven't bothered to check if they are selling it now or not.

Steve Parke had a problem with her using his pics & Troy Gua also had a problem with her, and even left a review on Amazon.

Her timeline is way, way off. She said Mayte had the miscarriage before she had the baby. Mayte said she had the miscarriage AFTER she had the baby. Who am I going to believe, the hairdresser or Mayte who actually carried the children?
