Prince was cremated and a group of his “most beloved” family, friends and musicians celebrated him afterward in a small, private service, his publicist confirms to the Associated Press.
Yvette Noel-Schure said in a statement that the 57-year-old music superstar’s family and friends gathered “in a private, beautiful ceremony” to say a loving goodbye.
Celebrity guests such as percussionist Sheila E. and bassist Larry Graham were both seen Saturday entering Prince’s suburban Minneapolis estate, Paisley Park. Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson and brother-in-law Maurice Phillips also were seen on the grounds.
As previously reported, Prince died Thursday at Paisley Park, and an autopsy was done Friday. But authorities have not released a cause of death and have said results could take days or weeks. [Associated Press]
