Prince died from AIDS.
A music industry source interviewed by The National Enquirer messaged friends on April 19 to say the singer was suffering from the disease.
The magazine claims the Purple Rain star was diagnosed with AIDS six months ago after contracting the HIV positive virus “in the 1990s”.
However due to his Jehovah’s Witness faith he refused medical treatment instead believing he could be cured by pray.
Members of his faith are also claimed to have told him to ignore it, saying to the singer he had “everlasting life”.
