Just a few days ago I saw this article on another site. Readers were speculating that it was Prince. I don't know how he passed, but it doesn't matter; it's still tragic.

MediaTakeOut.com™ 2014

"April 16, 2016: MediaTakeOut.com just received word that a VERY popular African-American celebrity - who has recently been in the news - now has what is being described as AIDS. Obviously since we are not able to 100% confirm the story - we're going to leave it as a Blind Item. We want to make it clear we are NOT talking about Magic Johnson.

This report REALLY hurt our heart.

According to a person EXTREMELY CLOSE to the situation, the celebrity, who is known for having a very EXTREME sexual past reportedly contracted the illness sometime in the 1990s. He kept the illness quiet but began taking his medication RELIGIOUSLY up until about two years ago. Here's what we're told by a VERY trusted entertainment insider:

[The celebrity] believed that he was cured, and he had some crazy [religious] people who told him that God cured him. So he stopped taking his medication and the sickness came back. Now doctors say he's dying, and there is nothing anyone can do about it."

We're told that the celebrity is expected to get sicker and sicker, and eventually pass. It can happen as soon as the summer.

Very sad news."

I can see him believing that, but hopefully that isn't true that he had AIDS. Makes me concerned for all the women he was involved with.

He honestly never looked too healthy in recent years... but he was still so active, that this does come as a shock. Sad to lose such a creative, and original musician. RIP Prince....

A very popular African-American celebrity who has recently been in the news? Prince is not the first one to come to my mind. Bill Cosby is.

To be honest, I've never really thought he looked overly healthy due to his makeup jobs.

I knew he was ill, but didn't expect to see the headlines that he passed, wow.

R.I.P. Another great one, gone.

I haven't heard anything about Bill Cosby in the news in recent weeks. Of course, I could have missed something.This story came out right after Prince went to the hospital.
