UPDATE: Prince has passed away at the age of 57 upon being found at Paisley Park. Full story here.

Original story: Police are reportedly investigating a fatality that has occurred on Prince’s estate in Minnesota.

According to KSTP and TMZ, a death occurred at Prince’s Paisley Park studio on Thursday morning (April 21). Authorities were alerted of a medical emergency, and are reportedly notifying next of kin.

Carver County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud confirmed the death investigation but did not give further details. Fuse has reached out to a rep for Prince, who has not immediately responded.

Prince was briefly hospitalized last Friday (April 15) after his private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Ill. The music legend has been battling flu-like symptoms.
