Prince is dead at 57, the Associated Press has confirmed, citing the pop star’s publicist. Law enforcement at the scene confirmed that the death is under investigation at Paisley Park Records in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Paisley Park is the compound where Prince lives, records music and hosts parties and concerts, including one party just a few days ago.
We first heard of Prince’s medical problems last week when in the middle of a flight, Prince and his crew had to abruptly land in Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois a bit past 1am. The icon was rushed to a nearby hospital in an ambulance after the plane made its landing.
