On April 14th, after the makeup shows, Prince fell ill while taking a flight back home. His plane made an emergency landing in Moline III and the singer was then brought by an ambulance.
Schulenberg had been treating the singer for withdrawal symptoms for opioid addiction in the weeks before his death. Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park on April 21. He was declared dead shortly thereafter. He was 57.
