CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — Authorities are investigating a death at Paisley Park, where pop superstar Prince has his recording studios. According to TMZ , multiple sources are reporting that the singer has died.

Prince was rushed to the hospital earlier this week after his flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois. A rep later told TMZ that Prince had been suffering from the flu.

Jason Kamerud, Carver County chief sheriff's deputy, tells the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the investigation began on Thursday morning.

He said officials are withholding information about the identity of the deceased person until next of kin has been notified. A news release will come afterward.
