Prince has been found dead at his mansion and Paisley Park recording studios in suburban Minneapolis, according to the Associated Press.

Detectives are investigating the star's death and details are scarce. Police were called to his property on Thursday and numerous sources are now speaking out.

Local reporters, like those from TV station KSTP, has been reporting. Farrah Fazal, tweeted this afternoon: "BREAKING: Deputies say they are now doing "death investigation" at Prince's Paisley Park recording studios near Minneapolis. @ KSTP."

His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told The Associated Press that the music icon died at his home in Chanhassen.

According to sources, authorities responded to a medical emergency at his property around 9:43 am. There has been a death reported, and they are notifying next of kin.

The news comes days after the 57-year-old singer was released from hospital after a bout of flu.

His last performance was a sold out one in Atlanta on Thursday, April 14. After the concert, his private jet made an unscheduled landing at Quad City International Airport in Illinois. From there he was taken to the hospital. However, he was taken home not even three hours later.

His hits included "Little Red Corvette," ''Let's Go Crazy" and "When Doves Cry."

Rolling Stone's induction into the Hall of Fame said it best:

He rewrote the rulebook, forging a synthesis of black funk and white rock that served as a blueprint for cutting-edge music in the Eighties," reads the Hall's dedication. "Prince made dance music that rocked and rock music that had a bristling, funky backbone. From the beginning, Prince and his music were androgynous, sly, sexy and provocative."

We will keep this story updated as more information becomes available.
