La Toya Jackson has revealed she came close to becoming Prince's girlfriend after a bizarre group date back in the early 1980s. The singer tells The Hollywood Reporter she stopped short of dating the Purple Rain singer even though she knew he liked her when they went out roller skating in the San Fernando Valley. She says, "Prince did like me, yes, but I didn't date him. We've gone roller skating, but not just with me - I think (friend) Kathy Hilton was there, my brother Michael was there, my sister (Janet) was there. So it was like a group." La Toya is currently looking for love after confessing she has not been on a date since her marriage to former manager Jack Gordon ended in 1997.
