A publicist for Prince has confirmed the death of the music icon.
He was found dead in his Minnesota home Thursday morning.
Prince recently performed in Toronto, putting on two shows at The Sony Centre to sold-out crowds.
The artist, who was born Prince Rogers Nelson, had a medical emergency just last week, which forced his jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. He went on to perform the next night.
His representatives told TMZ he was just fighting the flu.
Prince was 57.
An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

Prince’s talent was limitless. He was one of the most unique and talented artists of the last 30 years 4/4
