I can believe that. He really got very deeply involved with the Jehovah's Witnesses some time back, and as recently as a few years ago it wasn't all that uncommon for people to call a local radio station in Minneapolis and report that Prince had just knocked on their door to give them religious literature. He was really, really into it. There were lots of anecdotes about how deeply devout he had become, and how irrational some people who were close to him thought it was making him. Most of it was little things, though - not on the scale of refusing to take his medication. I hope that part isn't true, but won't be surprised if it turns out to be so.

This is what I was just thinking. It seems like we've lost tons of celebrities this year, including those who weren't even old like Prince and Garry Shandling.

57 is young! He had an illness a couple days ago and I hope his doc did not give him some meds that caused this. It's happened to others unfortunately, a friend of mine and a sister-in-law.

This has to be the biggest news in terms of death of a musician since Michael Jackson in 2009.

What jumps out at me is how he had access to the best doctors, given his vast amount of funds, yet whatever it was which ailed him could not be stopped even by that. I can't imagine ever listening to his music again the same way, especially "Let's Go Crazy" and that part where he says "I'm here to tell you, there's something else, the after world."

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 wouldn't believe that clap trap. And you notice it was dated the 16th which is after hearing the news of Prince's emergency landing due an llness (flu). MediatakeOut? Yeah, it's made up.

I just read this a few moments ago. Actually I first saw that Chyna the wrestler died, then the story about Prince. It has been one after the other celebrity the past 6 months or so. None of them get beyond their 50s or 60s. Very sad.
