HE once famously painted it purple and had his logo affixed to some walls.

Now the Costa del Sol home of singer Prince has gone up for sale for a cool €5.6 million.

The 11-bedroom villa, near El Paraiso golf course, in Estepona, was purchased by the singer in the early 90s, on the spur of the moment after he held a concert in Marbella stadium.

He bought the home with his Puerto Rican wife Mayte (who he wrote about in his song The Most Beautiful Girl in the World), and was spotted a few times in Marbella’s night spots.

But his Costa del Sol dream turned sour when his son with Mayte died shortly after his birth, and Prince vowed never to set foot in the mansion again.
