Prince knew he was about to die.

At least that's what the late musician's sister, Tyka Nelson, told People magazine.

“About three years ago he called … He said, ‘I think I’ve done everything I’ve come to do,'” Nelson said in an interview for the upcoming People and ABC special, People Icons: Gone too soon. “My dad and Prince always spoke in these types of riddles … He knew [he was going to die soon]. And he was preparing me. It’s very clear.”

Prince died April 21, 2016, from an accidental overdose of fentanyl – a highly addictive opioid used to treat pain.

You can read more from on the TV special from People and ABC. The episode will air March 21.

Also on Wednesday, People magazine released details from Prince’s ex-wife Mayte Garcia's new memoir, The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince.

People has an excerpt explaining the "pain and heartbreak" the couple endured during their son, Amiir's, short life.

The boy was born in 1996 with Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 – a rare genetic disorder – and only lived six days.

The book will be available April 4.
