Woah! Prince was rushed to a hospital early Friday morning after his jet made an emergency landing in Illinois, reports TMZ.

Sources say the legendary singer's private plane made an unscheduled landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline just after 1 AM... after which he was immediately transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

His current status is unclear, but TMZ says he's still in the hospital and "not doing well." However, another source says he's been released and is doing okay.

The nature of the medical emergency is still unclear.

UPDATE: A rep for Prince tells TMZ that the singer has been fighting the flu for several weeks, and despite cancelling two shows on April 7, wanted to make Thursday night's performance in Atlanta. However, after the show, he was on his private plan and began feeling pretty sick, so he made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where he was taken to the hospital and treated.

He was released three hours later, got back on the plane and is now back home.
