TMZ is reporting that Prince is dead at the age of 57.
The musician’s body was found at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota on Thursday, according to the site, after police were called there about a death.
Last week, Prince was reportedly hospitalized after an emergency plane landing because of illness. A rep told TMZ that Prince “has been fighting the flu for several weeks.”
According to the AP, the local Carver County chief sheriff’s deputy says that officials are witholding information about the identity of the deceased person until next of kin has been notified. A news release will come afterward.
