The legendary, iconic, Prince has passed away.
He was 57-years-old.
His body was found at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning.
He had been battling the flu for the past week but last appeared at a concert on April 16th to assure fans he was doing better.
We’re at a loss for words. Never did we expect to lose vanity and Prince in the same year — or even at all.
New reports have surfaced alleging Prince underwent treatment for a drug overdose in the days leading to his death.
We broke the story … Prince’s private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, hours after he performed in Atlanta. At the time his reps said he was battling the flu … something we questioned because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing.
Multiple sources in Moline tell us, Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a “save shot” … typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.
Our sources further say doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn’t possible … Prince and co. decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home.
We’re told when Prince left he “was not doing well.”
We know authorities in Minnesota are trying to get the hospital records from Moline to help determine cause of death.So sad.
