MINNEAPOLIS, May 7 (UPI) -- Prince's family says no official funeral has been held for the late music icon, despite reports claiming one has.
"We would like everyone to know that, contrary to previous and current reports, there has been no memorial, funeral or tribute service for Prince that was organized or authorized by the family or Paisley Park representatives," his family said in a statement to People magazine Friday.
"Together, the family is planning an official memorial service and public event to take place in the near future."
Prince Rogers Nelson died on April 21 at his home in suburban Minneapolis. He was 57.
The investigation into his death and toxicology results have yet to be completed. In recent days, news media have cited sources close to the singer in reporting that Prince appears to have suffered from an acute dependence on opioid painkillers.
The artist's publicist told the media Prince's friends and fellow musicians attended a private memorial service at his home two days after his death. His body was cremated and his cremains "will remain private," his representative said.
