The medical examiner's confirmation, which was released Friday, ended a three-month investigation that, at one point, included homicide detectives.
And in 1995, Prince penned his hit song 'The Most Beautiful Girl in the World' for Garcia.
WATCH: Prince Found Dead in an Elevator, Police Continue to Investigate Death When he was 37, he wed his 22-year-old backup singer and dancer Mayte Garcia on Valentine's Day in 1996.
According to VH1, the former couple met six years earlier when Mayte was a 16-year-old dancing prodigy attending one of his concerts.
The two had been in a sexual relationship for years at that point, one that Prince initiated by informing Garcia one day that it was time for her to go on birth control. Garcia recalls in 'The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince' how he first caught Price's eye after her mother submitted that belly dancing tape she reveals in her new memoir.
Garcia was living in the European country at the time, and the day that Prince got her tape he invited her backstage at his concert.'Prince was outside his dressing room, shaking one of those little Easter egg maracas,' writes Garcia of their first encounter.'His hair was straightened to a soft wave, his eyelashes were unfairly lovely.
