Prince’s untimely passing caused a great jolt in the music industry. The music legend collapsed and died at the age of 57 in the elevator of his Chanhassen recording studio. Reports first surfaced the singer and multi-instrumentalist passed away due to painkiller overdose but a new report now claims Prince really died from having AIDS. Fans are not having it.


According to The National Enquirer, Prince knew he will die soon. The gossip site learned from an insider that the legendary musician was diagnosed with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or AIDS, and since then Prince was “preparing to die for a little while.” His health too was rapidly declining.

The source said in a statement, “Doctors told Prince his blood count was unusually low and that his body temperature had dropped dangerously below the normal 98.6 degrees to 94 degrees.” The source added, “The singer was totally iron-deficient, very weak and often disoriented. Prince rarely ate and when he did, it all came right back up.”

In addition, before Prince died, TMZ reported the iconic singer was trying to go to a local Chanhassen pharmacy to pick up some prescriptions to put an end to his great pain. Prince was suffering from influenza at the time and the pain to his weakened body was unbearable.

An employee of the local Walgreens pharmacy stated, “We were all just shocked that the singer came in last night looking so beat. We said to Prince that we are praying for him.’” The employee added, indicating Prince’s response, “He said, almost under his breath, ‘Maybe if you prayed for me a year ago, it’d be different right now.’ Then he waved and said thanks anyway.”

In spite of that, Prince’s loved ones wanted the true cause of the singer’s death to be a confidential matter. An insider stated that the family of Prince demanded not to unleash any public autopsy report.

His fans on the other hand, are frustrated that such rumors will emerge, as reported by Yahoo News. Some cannot believe it and call the gossip site disgusting for publishing this angle. “Santa Monica paper claiming Prince had AIDS & JehovasWitness preventd treatment. Bull! I’ve lost many 2 HIV. None lookd as well as he did (sic),” Twitter user Pierce Aero said in disbelief.

“Prince dead from AIDS? The man just died. Leave him alone. We may never know the whole truth. Respect. Mysterious to the end,” Twitter user Nicole Cappelleri tweeted.
