5:51 pm
illinois.lino and prince was rushed to the hospital. he was only there for abouty th three hours and then went backak home. ho he was only 48me minutes fromrom home when the plane landed and it seemed odd to us his reps told us it was the flu but but that just didn't make sense to e us because why wouldn't hen't he tough it out for the 488 minutes rather than go to a tn strange place and go righte pl back to the plane? and so this whole thing about the flu f just felt bizarre to us and never quite rang true. t and then the second weirdecond r thing that happened was the hap day after he he made the made emergency landing he showed up at paisley park and he said toao the crowd at a dance party,arty wait a few days before you waste any prayers and it wasit s almost like he had some kindnd of a premonition.ti >> yeah. >> 'cause that's just an oddusta statement.at so there are other things asem s well but this whole business bin about the flu

else, it just -- it was not n ringing true to us and i think t we're going to have moreeo shortly on the web site.he >> yeah, can't wait to seeh, ca exactly what that is.th and, you know, you mentioned mtn he was kind of had a premonition there, perhapsion knew something was gthoing onoi but also leading up to that heha had canceled some recent r concerts as well, too, right? g what was his state then? doesne anybody know? >> well, again, you're absolutely right and he had had canceled atlanta concerts andsnd again, that was his make goodakg a week ago where he went back -- went to atlantatl because he had canceled theread a week or two before and again, they said it was thehe flu but it was kind of unexplained. when he went last week tot ek t atlanta to perform, he did twohd shows and everybody said hed looked great on stage, his sta, voice was great and thent and he suddenly an hour and a half orfr so later he's in an emergency room at a hospital that, you know -- away far from his from
5:53 pm
really made any sense and it just didn't track with the flu. >> what about this event he's had at paisley park, was itark,i last night or two nights ago ago that he held despite havingteav these health problems, why -- w what was that all about? whybo did he go forward with that ifwa he was still having these t health problems?robl >> i think you're making a min very good point. poi it was saturday night andignd again it was the day after hee made that emergency landing and he had seen the tmz storyto and we're told was upset aboutea it and wanted people to know that he wasn't going to die sood when he showed up at paisleypale park on saturday, he seemed hsem fine to everybody. so, you've got a guy whoho disappears from public viewc vie when he's supposed to do asuppod show. they say it's the flu. then he does a show and seems ae fine and then an hour and a half later all of a sudden all he's in an emergency room. he shows up the next dayws u looking completely fine.y f so what is bringing him in and a out of that state of emergencymg and that's the
