Oh no! Police reported a death at Prince’s Minnesota estate on April 21, just days after he was rushed to the hospital with the flu. Sadly, it has been reported that it was in fact Prince who passed away.
This is so sad. A person was reported dead at Prince‘s Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minn., and sources are saying that it was Prince who died. Although was recently hospitalized for the flu on April 15, his death doesn’t come as any less of a shock to fans.
Just before 10 a.m. CST on April 21, authorities responded to a medical emergency at Prince’s Minnesota home and studio, according to TMZ. The Chanhassen Sheriff’s department told the outlet that there has been a fatality, and they immediately informed Prince’s closest relatives about the death. Not long after, sources confirmed to TMZ that it was indeed Prince who had died.
While it was initially unclear if the deceased was Prince, fans were terribly concerned about whether Prince was okay, as the report of the death was incredibly shocking following the singer’s recent condition. Just days before the fatality occurred, Prince’s plane had to make an emergency landing to rush the music icon to the hospital. His rep confirmed to TMZ that the cause of Prince’s hospitalization was a case of the flu, but that didn’t make fans any less concerned that he could be dead only days later. Clearly he never fully regained good health, and we’re heartbroken that he’s now gone.
