Prince's family are reported to have held a private service to remember the pop legend, who died at the age of 57 on April 21 at his Paisley Park estate of an accidental drug overdose.

A cousin of his told that family members and close friends gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Friday August 12 to say goodbye and remember his life.

Charles 'Chazz' Smith told local news channel KARE-TV that Friday's service was held at a Minneapolis church, and that another service is planned for Saturday at Paisley Park.

He opened up during the short interview, revealing the late musician's family have been finding it difficult over the last few months, and that they're trying hard to preserve Prince's image.

Talking about Prince's death from a Fentanyl overdose, Smith said he hoped the tragedy would help others struggling with a painkiller addiction to seek help.
