Prince purchased the house last year after it went on sale

It has emerged that Prince last year bought the house that his character, The Kid, in the film Purple Rain lived in.

The house in Minneapolis went on sale last year, and the buyer, as The Current reports, was NPG Music Publishing, one of Prince’s companies. Prince also owned several other homes in Minnesota as well as around the world including his childhood home and properties for family.
