Prince has died.

TMZ confirms the news – his body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning after a medical emergency at the on-site recording studio was reported.

Prince’s spokesperson says in a statement, β€œIt is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57. There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time.”

Prince had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois, but his reps confirmed later he was OK. At his concert the following day he assured his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.

RIP Prince. Leave a few words for the iconic singer in Exhale.
