Prince's Sister Posted A Moving Tribute To Fans After Her Brother's Death


Following Prince's unexpected death on Thursday, the music legend's sister reportedly met with fans gathered outside his Paisley Park residence in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Tyka Nelson, 55, apparently greeted hundreds of people who came to Prince's home and recording studio to mourn the 57-year-old icon.

PEOPLE reports Tyka told the crowd,

Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator in his estate early Thursday morning. A cause of death has not yet been determined.

Tyka also posted a Facebook status following the news of her brother's death, thanking his fans for their support.

She wrote,

Tyka lives in Minneapolis and was Prince's only full sibling, though they both have several half brothers and sisters.

My thoughts are with Tyka and the rest of the family in this difficult time.
