Speculation on the reason behind Prince's sudden demise is rife and as a new angle to it, a recent report says he was living with AIDS.

According to a source, the 'Purple Rain' hit-maker "was in bad shape," he was allegedly diagnosed HIV positive six months ago, reports

Reportedly, doctors told the legendary singer that his blood count was unusually low and his body temperature had dropped dangerously below the normal 98.6 degrees to 94 degrees.

Adding to that, the 'Little Red Corvette' singer was totally iron-deficient, often disoriented and rarely ate anything.

Prescription painkillers were reportedly found in Prince's possession when he died in his house in Minnesota.

As reported, the 57-year-old was spotted at his local Walgreens pharmacy few hours before he died on April 21 at his estate in suburban Minneapolis.
