Following the death of her brother, Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson is speaking out and claimed that the Purple Rain singer loved all of his fans.

According to US Magazine, Nelson appeared from Prince's Paisley Park recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, with a smile on her face speaking to fans who were standing outside of the building. She thanked fans who came to pay their respects and mourn the loss of Prince and said: "He really loved you all," a witness claimed.

Despite efforts of the Carver County Sheriff's Department blocking off the road in front of Paisley Park, hundreds of fans still made their way to pay their respects decked out in purple leaving flowers, cards, candles, and more.

 RIP Prince #paisleypark

Prince had an odd love for the number seven. He was born on June 7, died at 57 and was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. The Carver County Sheriff's Department had responded to a 911 call when a unresponsive male was found inside of an elevator around 9:43 a.m. When the medical team arrived they were unable to bring Prince back. The cause of death has not been determined. Prince had been suffering for weeks with flu-like symptoms. An autopsy has been scheduled for Friday, April 22.

Celebs including Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, Oprah and even President Obama remembered and mourn the death of the legendary singer. Over 5,000 people showed up to Spike Lee's Brooklyn neighborhood to dance the night away in honor of Prince during a block party.

A rainbow was spotted shining over Prince's estate after he died. Many fans caught a snapshot of it.
