Beloved superstar Prince has sadly passed away at 57. TMZ first broke the news the singer's body was found at his home in Minnesota early Thursday morning, and his publicist has now confirmed to AP that he has died at the Paisley Park estate. The cause of death is unconfirmed.
Prince was hospitalised in Illinois on April 15 after battling the flu for several weeks, though was released only a few hours after being admitted. Exactly one month ago he had announced plans to pen his first memoir tentatively titled The Beautiful Ones.
