57 year old Prince Rogers Nelson was battling the flu and had to cancel a few appearances after his plane made an emergency landing to get him treatment in Illinois. A representative for Prince told TMZ the singer was feeling under the weather during his shows last week and began feeling worse on the plane. He was treated at a hospital and released a few hours later. Prince made an appearance Saturday night at a Paisley Park party quelling speculation about his diminishing health before today’s sad news.
Prince passed away on April 21, 2016 at his Paisley Park Estate in Minnesota.
