La Toya Jackson "can't stop shaking" after learning of the death of close family friend Prince.
The legendary Purple Rain musician died at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota on Thursday (21Apr16), aged 57, a week after he was hospitalised for the flu.
Further details about the cause of his death have yet to be released, but the shocking loss has brought back painful memories for La Toya, almost seven years after the passing of her brother, Michael Jackson, in 2009.
"This is a sad, sad, sad day," she told CNN. "I never thought that this would come again, you know, that same feeling that just brings back memories of my brother, losing him. It's that same feeling that overwhelms you, that comes across your entire body, and you feel helpless, like, 'Oh my gosh'. I can't believe it. We're devastated and shocked by this news."

Janet Jackson's sister La Toya Jackson called out organisers of Sunday's (06Feb16) Super Bowl for omitting her superstar sibling from a montage of past half-time performers.
The Control singer became the centre of one of the most talked-about moments in the football game's 50-year history in 2004, when Justin Timberlake ripped off a piece of Janet's top during their performance, exposing her breast for over 140 million viewers to see.
The controversial wardrobe malfunction led to broadcasting fines and lawsuits, but despite all this, La Toya still wondered why her superstar sister was not included in the Super Bowl 50 montage.
Coldplay led this year's (16) half-time show, and near the end of their set, he brought attention to those who have graced the same stage in the past, as clips of memorable sets from Bruce Springsteen, Rolling Stones, James Brown, Whitney Houston, Paul MCCartney, and last year's (15) star, Katy Perry, among others were flashed up on screens around the stadium.

Michael Jackson cloned his DNA before his death, it has been claimed.
The King of Pop passed away in June 2009 from acute Propofol intoxication but in the years leading up to his demise he paid millions of dollars to European scientists engaged in cutting edge genetic research to create replicas of himself.
Michael's wish was that the replicas would be able to carry on his legacy after his passing and he made ''safe deposits'' of his sperm in three different medical facilities across the world to be used if he died.

The two bodyguards who spent the last two-and-a-half years of Michael Jackson's life with him have come forward to tell their side of the story.
Michael Jackson’s bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard, have written a book giving their account of the final years of Jackson’s life. The two men spent two-and-a-half years working for Jackson, even continuing out of loyalty once he could no longer afford to pay them. They insist that Jackson was a good father and a good man: “We worked for Mr Jackson. We didn’t work for the King of Pop. We got to see him as a man and a father. It was so good to see the side of him which was so in tune as a parent, from helping them with their homework and making sure they were eating right, to putting them to bed.”
Michael Jackson, also known as the King of Pop, died in 2009
They address the rumour that had dogged Jackson in the years leading up to his death and that has lingered since - that he was a paedophile. Both Whitfield and Beard deny that Jackson was sexually attracted to children, instead claiming he had two secret affairs with women. While they deny that Jackson was a paedophile, they do admit he was eccentric: “He was certainly eccentric…He would go into a store and buy everything. When we stayed in hotels he would buy thousands of books. At one point, he bought a whole bookstore.”
