Yesterday, TMZ announced that Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl halftime show (happening tonight) would include a Prince hologram. Sheila E., Prince's collaborator and former fiancée, tweeted that "Prince told me don’t ever let anyone do a hologram of me. Not cool if this happens!"

Last night, she followed up with this tweet:

Family, I spoke w/Justin 2nite and he shared heartfelt words of respect for Prince & the Purple fans. I look 4wrd 2 seeing what I’m sure is going 2 be a spectacular halftime show. There is no hologram. 🙏🏽💋 pic.twitter.com/mhVXBfBa1B

It's not clear whether the Prince hologram news was incorrect or if it was scrapped after the backlash.
