Popular artiste Prince has passed away at the age of 57. News reports have confirmed that the singer's body was found at his Minnesota estate early Thursday morning. Earlier, a death was being investigated at his home, but no names were being revealed.
He'd been unwell for a while and was even hospitalized some time ago. On April 15, a medical emergency led to his private jet making an emergency landing. Later, during a performance, he told his fans that he was fine and it was being said that he had the flu. However, he'd earlier cancelled two of his shows citing health reasons. 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.
Shocked reactions have already started pouring in on Twitter.
