It is with deep regret and sadness that we are hearing about Prince dying at 57. We do not know cause of death at this time.
From PRINCE's publicist:
"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
He had been battling the flu. I have no further info at this time. I will update when I can.
To us he was more than just a celebrity and he has referred to us as a true friend on multiple occasions.
I am in denial a bit.
"He called me his friend. I don't think he had many. I cherish that he let me into his life and confided with me, shared with me, and let me be a part of things for him. For that, I am truly grateful. I know I speak for fans and friends around the world that this is a tremendous loss. He was brilliant. So funny. You have no idea. Loved basketball almost as much as his guitar."-Dr. Funkenberry
