MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A real estate agent says Prince last year bought a Minneapolis “fixer-upper” featured in his 1984 hit movie “Purple Rain,” though the megastar never lived in the home.

Deborah Larsen of Coldwell Banker Burnet in Minneapolis said Tuesday that Prince’s company, NPG Music Publishing, bought the 1913 house for $117,000. The asking price was $110,000.

The house was used for exterior shots in “Purple Rain,” which starred Prince as an aspiring musician known as “The Kid.”

Larsen says a woman in California called last July wanting to pay cash for the house. It had been on the market for about a week. Larsen doesn’t know why Prince wanted the house. She says it needed “a lot of repairs.”

Prince died in April. Records show he owned a dozen Minnesota properties.
