The singer Prince was hospitalized on Friday after his personal jet made an unscheduled, emergency landing in Illinois.
TMZ broke the news and later updated the developing story. A source told the online Los Angeles based tabloid that the “Purple Rain” singer had been fighting the flu for a few days and canceled two shows on April 7.
Even though he was feeling under the weather, Prince wanted to perform for his fans in Atlanta. After the show, he boarded his plane and his condition worsened, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport just after 1 a.m. Friday morning.
He was treated and released 3 hours later. He is now back home resting.
