Prince PFUnks Up His Fans

11/10/2007 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

PrinceBattling with several fan sites of over the use of his material, Prince has decided to try making nice with his biggest supporters the best way he knows how -- through song.

His Purpleness released a new track on his site entitled "PFUnk" and even gave the song to the website PrinceFansUnited.com -- a site formed by three of the largest Prince fan sites as a way to fight back against the barrage of cease and desist letters the sites have received from Prince's lawyers. Controversy!

Here's where it gets strange: A statement was released yesterday by Prince's PR people, calling the Prince Fans United sites "phony" -- only it turns out the statement was sent in error. The two sides are working on a joint statement and hope to have the matter resolved soon.

Earlier this year, Prince and his record label fought with YouTube over a 29-second video of an 18-month-old baby dancing to Prince's "Let's Go Crazy." How does Prince find so much time to surf the web?
