Prince is currently recovering at home after his private plane was forced to make an emergency landing in a bid to get the iconic singer to a hospital, stat.
According to TMZ, The Purple One was rushed to the ER after his plane made an unscheduled stop in the US overnight, touching down at an airport in the small city of Moline, Illinois.
Prince’s reps apparently told the gossip site that the iconic muso was suffering from a bad bout of the man flu, and after hopping a plane en route to his scheduled gig in Atlanta, Georgia, he apparently felt “considerably worse” and arranged for the aircraft to make an emergency landing.
He then spent three hours in hospital before heading home, and has apparently been hitting Twitter hard ever since, posting review links and random shit but also sort-of confirming that he’s OK:
The Roots’ Questlove has also tweeted to let fans know that Prince told him “I’m cool”.
"I'm cool" #nevermind

After having a blast on tour here in Australia, Prince was forced to reschedule a pair of his Piano & Microphone tour dates last week after he came down with the flu, and apparently it was a bad one because he’s still not over it.
Speaking of which, it’s coming into flu season here in Aus too and doctors want y’all to make sure you get your shots.
But whatever. We’re not your mum. Do what you want, just keep your germs to yourself.
