Prince's Sister Reveals Eerie Statement From Prince Before His Death

Prince's Sister Reveals Eerie Statement From Prince Before His Death

She says a phone call from the music icon was also a warning.

Published March 16th

Approaching us soon will be the one-year anniversary of the death of music’s legendary pop, soul, rock and R&B icon Prince, honored in an upcoming collaborative special airing on ABC titled People Icons: Gone Too Soon. 

With the commemoration of the Purple One will also come an exclusive interview with Tyka Nelson, one of Prince’s siblings, who People reports shared details on the idol’s antemortem words on his untimely, but foreshadowed, demise. 

During the interview, Nelson reminisced on her Minneapolis childhood beside Prince, sharing pleasant memories of how he taught her to whistle and tie her own shoes. Landing on the days leading up to his death, she said that a phone call from him was a mere warning that he believed his death would soon be approaching.    

“About three years ago, he called,” Nelson disclosed. “He said, ‘I think I’ve done everything I’ve come to do.’ My dad and Prince always spoke in these types of riddles… He knew [he was going to die soon]. And he was preparing me. It’s very clear.”

The “Purple Rain” crooner was found dead in his Paisley Park estate on April 21, 2016. Medical officials ruled his death an accidental overdose from the pain-killing opioid fentanyl.

People Icons: Gone Too Soon will premiere its Prince tribute on Tuesday, March 21.
