The artist known as Prince has died ... TMZ has learned. He was 57.
Prince's body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning.
Multiple sources connected to the singer confirmed he had passed. We've obtained the emergency dispatch call for a "male down, not breathing."
The singer -- full name Prince Rogers Nelson -- had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.
At the show, Prince prophetically told the crowd, "Wait a few days before you waste any prayers."
Prior to his most recent appearance however, Prince had cancelled two shows due to health concerns.
Prince became an international superstar in 1982 after his breakthrough album "1999."
Sincerest sympathy Vicki. In your condition this is the last thing you would expect to be focusing on... wrapping you in our hearts.
We lost mum last year - I hear you.
Thanks, Rose. Yes, my world has been shaken. And I certainly wouldn't have chosen to fly whilst pregnant but this was just meant to be for some reason...
Those photos that you linked to - the second photo is exactly what I was seeing above their house. Terrible times.
