Fans of famed musician Prince had a minor scare on Friday (Apr. 15), when they saw his name was trending on social media. News broke that the “Purple Rain” artist was rushed to a hospital after he finished performing at a concert in Atlanta, Ga., earlier this week.
When he boarded a plane on his way to another destination following the night’s festivity, Prince began to feel ill and made an emergency landing in Moline, Ill., TMZ reports. According to a rep for the highly-decorated singer, Prince has been battling the flu for a few weeks now.
After arriving at the nearest hospital, Prince received medical attention and continued to travel on his way back home, where he’s currently recovering.
Although the music scene will take a backseat for a little bit, Prince announced last month that he was releasing a memoir in 2017 that’ll take fans and spectators on a literary journey of His Royal Badness’ “powerful reflections on his own life in his own incandescently vivid, witty, and poetic voice.”
