Mayte Garcia Net Worth $2.5 Million

Because of her father`s relations with the military, Mayte Garcia had to move many times when she was a child, living in many places around the USA as well as in Germany, in fact graduating from General H. H. Arnold High School in Wiesbaden, Germany, able to speak Spanish, English and German. Mayte`s mom was a dance teacher, clearly who first taught Mayte how to dance.  It is not surprising Mayte has such net worth, as she started dancing when she was three years old, and became a professional dancer at the age of eight. Mayte came into prominence and started her net worth growing after appearing as the  world`s youngest belly dancer on “That`s Incredible!”, the American reality television show aired on ABC channel from 1980 to 1984. Thus, belly dancing soon became her main career and source of Mayte Garcia’s net worth. As regards her relationship with Prince, Garcia met him in 1990 on tour in Germany. However, Prince already knew Mayte because a couple of months before they met, Mayte`s mother gave him a video cassette with Mayte`s performances. Soon Garcia became a dancer on Prince`s The Diamonds and Pearls Tour during which Prince was promoting his album of the same title.

Mayte Garcia net worth was growing as she continued collaborating with Prince: she contributed to his albums named Three Chains o` Gold and Love Symbol, too. Garcia not only appeared as a dancer, but also as a singer in English and Spanish in some of Prince`s songs. It is clear that both of them were related to each other more than in business and career deals, and they became a couple. In 1995, Prince released an album titled as Child of the Sun, dedicated to Mayte. Hence, Mayte enlarged her net worth with her appearances along with Prince.

As Mayte is also a choreographer, in 1997 Garcia became the artistic director of the New Power Generation Dance Company on their tour named Around the World in a Day. Mayte also directed some music videos for the American singer Chaka Khan, as well as for the funk band Grand Central Station. Mayte earned more while directing the music videos for The One for Prince and further showed her skills while contributing to Britney Spears`s music video I`m a Slave 4 U.

In her personal life, Mayte and Prince married in 1996, and had a son the same year, but sadly he died  from Pfeiffer syndrome shortly after birth. They finally divorced in 2000. In 2013 Mayte adopted a daughter, and is now hoping boyfriend Humberto will become permanent.
