Legendary artist Prince made an emergency landing and was apparently rushed to an Illinois hospital Friday morning, TMZ is reporting.

After a show Thursday night in Atlanta, the pilot of his private plane apparently made an unscheduled stop around 1 a.m. at Quad City International Airport in Moline.

The 57-year-old’s condition isn’t clear – one source told TMZ he was “not doing well,” while another said he has already been released from an area hospital.

Prince postponed an April 7 show because of illness after reportedly getting the flu.
