Fans of Prince are absolutely devastated after hearing he tragically died on April 21, and immediately, dozens flocked to his house in Minnesota to pay tribute. A group has already gathered outside in the rain to honor the icon’s incredible life.
The rain isn’t stopping Prince’s fans from paying tribute to him after his death on April 21. Just hours after the singer was pronounced dead at his home, people gathered around the compound at Paisley Park to mourn him, and it is quite a heartbreaking scene.
Even in the middle of a downpour, diehard fans made a point to pay their respects by standing outside the estate, where, hours earlier, Prince was declared dead. It is quite a touching image to see, proving just how much of an impact the legendary superstar had.
Prince was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. after police found him unresponsive in an elevator and attempts at frantic CPR didn’t work to revive him. His cause of death is still unknown, but the night before, he was seen at a Walgreens pharmacy, making it the fourth time he’d been there in the past week.
Less than a week before his death, Prince was traveling home from a concert in Atlanta when his plane was forced to make an emergency landing because he wasn’t feeling well. He had been battling the flu for weeks and was rushed to the hospital, but discharged just a few hours later.
The very next day, Prince invited hundreds of fans to his home for a dance party, where he remained optimistic and assured everyone he was totally fine. Still, as we EXCLUSIVELY reported, his friends were very concerned about the state of his health in the days before his death.
“It felt to his friends that there was a bigger disease he wasn’t admitting to,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. We will continue to update you as new details about this tragic story unfold.
