Legendary musician Prince was found dead on Thursday morning in his Minnesota home. He was 57 years-old.
TMZ reported that paramedics were called to Prince’s Paisley Park studio at 9:43 am, and both a forensics team and a medical examiner are at the scene. According to Daily Mail, Prince was hospitalized six days ago with severe flu symptoms.
Prince was aboard his private plane last Friday when he became so ill that the aircraft had to make an emergency landing in Illinois. He was treated for six hours and then released, but a source at the time claimed he was “not doing well.”
The iconic musician had just performed at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta last Thursday night, which was the second of two back to back sold out shows. Audience members said he appeared fine at the concert.
