Minneapolis, MN, United States (NewsBahn) – Superstar musician Prince has reportedly been found dead inside his mansion in Carver County Minnesota.

While authorities are waiting to contact his next of kin before releasing his name, CNN and TMZ are among the media outlets confirming the death of Prince Rogers Nelson, aka Prince.

"We are not releasing any information regarding the identity of the person who died until next of kin is notified," Carver County Sheriff spokesman Jason Kamerud said.

He was 57 and was touring as recently as this month, though he was said to be not feeling well at an Atlanta stop and canceled one concert there.

Prince has had five No. 1 hits and 14 in the top 10 and he earned an Oscar for the soundtrack for Purple Rain.
