In early April, the singer — whose full name is Prince Rogers Nelson — was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois on his flight home from Atlanta after he fell ill. He was transported to a local hospital by ambulance and released three hours later. He had reportedly been suffering from the flu.
More details to come.
