OK something about Kim’s story has always bugged me. She says she worked for Prince for 28 years yet she says she stared during Diamonds & Pearls. OK that would be roughly 25 years. So where are the 3 extra years coming from. confused

I've questioned the same thing. Who was doing the D&P/Love symbol period hair? I didn't think that was her. When did Earl Jones leave the camp?

Kim claims she came on board in ‘91. But that wouldn’t be 28 years.

She said in the new interview with Uncovering Prince that she was dating one of his bodyguards and he introduced her to a woman named Tanya who was his hairstylist at the time and that was around 87/88.She said that after an argument with Prince, Tanya quit and she came in after her.

Ok well then she gets her years wrong because she’s also said in interviews that she started around Diamonds & Pearls.

Maybe Tanya did hair for others in the camp because in 87/88 Earl Jones(Jill Jones's uncle) was still his hair stylist

Earl was Prince's stylist from 1982-1989

I think so too. Maybe she means that she was around during that time since she said she was dating one of Prince's bodyguards.During the interview,she was specifically asked about the look that he had during The Sacrifice of Victor with the "finger waves" and she said that Tanya started that look and she kept it up after she left.

She also said that she was 19/20 years old around the time of the "Buckwheat braids" 1998/99 and the NPS/Rave albums. Which would made her around 17 at the time of the Oprah interview and 9 or 10 years old in 88/89, 15 around the time of the "Typhoon". Doesn't add up at all. Tanya made the Typhoon as it was shown in '92. Tanya was credited for "visage" on the Love Symbol album.
