Apollonia was actually married* at the time of Purple Rain, but was sworn to secrecy about it, so that people would really think she and Prince were a couple.*Update: People have written in saying that Apollonia wasn't married - she was dating David Lee Roth at the time. Morris Day apparently had a substance addiction throughout the filming of "Purple Rain" and was high during most of the filming.
He often had to be almost literally dragged out of his room to the set from being so under the influence.
(Greg Kot)"We keep getting these little shots in the arm, so people can say, 'Oh (expletive), I forgot about them! The success of "Uptown Funk," the Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars hit whose resemblance to "Jungle Love" cannot be overstated, has focused renewed attention on the original.
When Morris Day and The Time last released an album, it couldn't do so under the group's own name.
Prince, Day's longtime friend, occasional patron, sometime rival and owner of the name "The Time," wouldn't allow its use on recorded material (though the group is allowed to use it for live performances).

Throughout his "Triple Threat" Tour, Prince was often seen writing in, what legend has it, was a purple notebook.
In the spring of 1983, he and William Blinn began work on a screenplay entitled "Dreams".
By the time Purple Rain was released in 1984 Morris Day and Prince were not even speaking to each other due to disagreements over "creative differences".
Many people don't know that Jesse Johnson (of The Time) and Prince used to argue ALL the time!
Thanks to a handful of classic pop-funk hits, the evergreen appeal of The Time's career-launching Prince vehicle "Purple Rain" and the nostalgia of Gen Xers, Morris Day and The Time have endured.
