Music legend Prince has passed away at age 57, according to reports.
The reports claim that the singer’s body was found at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on Thursday morning. And his publicist confirmed by Thursday afternoon that the singer had indeed died at his home in Minneapolis.
Carver County Sheriff spokesman Jason Kamerud confirmed that authorities were investigating a death at the compound. However, the department currently isn’t releasing any information on the matter.
"We are not releasing any information regarding the identity of the person who died until next of kin is notified," Kamerud said.
Prince — whose full name is Prince Rogers Nelson — had reportedly been dealing with health issues just a week earlier, with reports surfacing on April 15 that his jet made an emergency landing so that he could be rushed to a hospital.
His team later released a statement saying that he was “fine” and was simply suffering from the flu.
The rep added that Prince was at home resting in Minnesota following the reported incident.
