The 57-year-old singer, real name Prince Rogers Nelson, lives in a posh mansion in the Minnesota suburb. It’s unclear if Prince was home at the time of the death investigation.
Last week, the “Purple Rain” singer checked into a hospital in Moline, Illinois after his plane was diverted for an emergency landing. He was traveling home from a concert in Georgia.
The next day, he reportedly hosted a party at his estate. According to his camp, Prince was discharged hours later after receiving treatment for a “bad bout of the flu.”
