Prince shut R&B crooner Eric Benet out of the Essence Black Women in Music pre-Grammy event in Hollywood because Benet is engaged to his ex-wife, Manuela Testolini, sources told Page Six.

The event Tuesday night at Playhouse in Hollywood honored Grammy-nominated singer Janelle Monae.

The couple lived in Toronto when they were together.

The York University graduate currently heads a foundation called In A Perfect World, which has a branch dedicated to constructing schools in rural areas around the world, including Nepal, Senegal and Haiti.

The last item on the sweet checklist was "become a big sister."The beautiful pair tied the knot in 2011 and welcomed Lucia in 2012.

The Grammy-nominated artist, 47, was previously married to Halle Berry for four years, before they divorced in 2005 without having any children.

Benet, who was married to Halle Berry, was disinvited once Prince was expected as a special guest.

Organizers believed it was because Prince didn’t want to be in the company of his ex.

The R&B singer and his wife Manuela Testolini welcomed the new addition to their family this past July.

The love we shared, the music he made and our life together is forever engraved in my heart. I am heartbroken beyond words.” The pair met when Testolini worked at Prince's charitable organization.
