TMZ officially reported the passing of the musician Prince after multiple news sites reported a fatality on Prince’s Paisley Park recording studio. His publicist confirmed the death on Thursday via Jon Passantino’s twitter. Prince was 57 when he passed away.
A few days earlier, Prince was hospitalized during his tour due to a bout with the flu. It was apparently severe enough to cancel a few shows and warrant an emergency landing with his private plane, en route to a show.
As of this moment, no official word has been revealed regarding his cause of death but we’ll update as soon as more new comes. Our deepest condolences to Prince’s family and friends.
Prince was a famed recording artist with hits such as “1999”, “Batdance” and “Purple Rain”.
