Prince has died at 57, according to TMZ. The singer, born Prince Rogers Nelson, was found dead at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning following a medical emergency last week. Prince's publicist confirmed the news to AP shortly after news broke Thursday afternoon.
"It 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," Yvette Noel-Schure said.
Prince was hospitalized with a severe bout of the flu on April 15 after his private jet made an emergency landing in Illinois -- but the "Kiss" singer assured fans he was okay, performing the next day.
No further information was immediately available from his rep or local officials
