Did She Really Date Prince?

During the premiere episode of The Golden Bachelor, contestant Leslie Fhima dropped a bombshell on viewers. Not only did she once date superstar musician Prince, he (allegedly) wrote his song “Sexy Dancer” about her.

Sadly, Prince died in 2016, but Fhima’s family backed up her claim. In an interview with the Star Tribune, her brother Eli dropped another bombshell. Yes, his sister dated Prince, and she also “broke up with Prince.”

Fhima reportedly ended the relationship to tour with the Ice Follies.

According to ABC’s official bio, the Golden Bachelor frontrunner used to be a professional figure skater. While she may not skate professionally these days, Fhima isn’t retired either.

Who Is Leslie Fhima’s Ex-Husband?

Does She Have Kids?

Like Gerry Turner and the other two final contestants, Leslie Fhima does have children. She boasts three adult children, and she’s proud to be a ‘glama’ to three grandchildren.

Who Wins Gerry Turner’s Final Golden Rose?

One question we don’t know the answer to is if Leslie Fhima wins The Golden Bachelor. As of this publication, three women remain in the running for Gerry Turner’s heart – Fhima, Theresa Nist, and Faith Martin.

Leslie Fhima clearly has a connection with Gerry Turner, but is it stronger than his connection with the other two? Only time will tell. The Golden Bachelor season finale doesn’t air until November 30.

The good news is if Fhima isn’t his final pick, she might be ABC’s first pick for a potential Golden Bachelorette spinoff.
