From a wonderful singer to an amazing dancer and from a multi-instrumentalist to a record producer and a philanthropist; he managed to do everything with grace and perfection.
Prince Rogers had a lot of home across the world. Wherever he worked, he built his very own home or sometimes homes as well. However, working a lot in LA majorly, Prince only owned a single home there. Furthermore, he sold that home for around $2.2 million in 1997. When Prince passed away in April 2016, he was residing in his home at Paisley Park Residence in Minnesota.

Prince Death; a Controversy:
Even after a year of Prince Nelson death, his death situation remains an unsolved mystery for all. An overdose of an extremely powerful painkiller fentanyl at 57 is said to be the major or core reason of his death. The reason as to why do Prince overdose himself or was it done so by someone else; this all remains an unanswered mystery. Reputation of Prince in the light of his record was all about his dirty talking but amongst friends and family he was famous for this clean living. This led to the result that Prince had never taken drugs and even his ex-wife gave the same statement as his friends and family did.
Was this done by someone? If so, then who was the person? Nothing has yet been found out even when it is more than a year now that Prince is not amongst us.
