Where did the 'bike' picture originate?

Im refering to the picture of Prince on his bike, just before he died. We know it wasn't really taken a few days earlier, but it was 'put out' to suggest all was well. My point is, did Prince get this put out to cover any gossip about him being sick, or did it have nothing to do with Paisley Park. When you think about it, it is possibly more alarming to think someone else would have used the image to suggest he was ok, and you've got to wonder why?

Common knowledge from where? Is there a source?

TMZ claims to have taken it right afteer the airplane scare. They were stalking Paisley Park after he was released from the hospital.

Here's an article that talks about a woman who saw P riding his bike three days prior to his death. It says she snapped a picture, although I don't know that it's the photo you're speaking of. ahttp://www.etonline.com/...his_death/

That's my point right there. That's a lie, it wasn't taken that week or outside/around paisley park. So what's the reason?

this is a consipiracy theory - which is to say, a myth - which you'll never find an answer that satisfies. You've already disregarded interviews, and the reports of TMZ, for no reason at all, calling it "common knowledge". You're in the murk, and there's no stable ground. Even if someone follows your logic, it points to nothing, besides innuendo, and a vague feeling of paranoia. You'll NEVER be satisfied with what anyone says, unless they say something equally vague, and open ended.

Okay, I'll 'fess up--it was me out riding a bike in a wig and Prince disguise to lure paparazzi away from Paisley Park... boxed

I didn't set out to be vague, I am dead serious, and there are plenty of others on here who will tell you the picture was taken a while ago, and even where it was taken, which is what got me thinking about the logic to the story. Originally I thought it was Prince himself, or his camp, that put it out to cover up the severity of what happened on the plane, but if it wasn't Paisley Park, someone has fucked up.

Help us all out.
Blink once if you're saying he died on the plane and was replaced by a body double til they had a chance to stage his death at Paisley Park.
Blink twice if you're saying he was killed, replaced, then staged.
Blink three times if... OH lawd.

I am not suggesting anything like what you are saying. You are missing the point.

I believe pics of him on his bike that were old were reported as new by some newspapers trying to get a story out ASAP. There is zero evidence that these photos were "put out" by Paisley Park, Prince or anyone with any contact with him.

you need to post some evidence this. I asked before for a link to anything that proves it wasn't taken that week.

-There is an interview with the women who took the last picture of him because the tabs were offering her big money for it and she refuses to sell it. I will find it and post it may even be on this board if you just use the search area.

i saw this woman talking with local reporters after he died. i think the pic is real. the pic of him in white pants w/ light blue tunic is from another time and place.

there is also a video of him on his bike riding at some shoping center a few days before.

Growing things weren't green like that in April. Hunt out the Walgreens parking lot pic of him...you can clearly see things hadn't greened up in MN yet...at least for the one of him in that bottom pic. There had been another with him in a blue top claimed as recent that also wasn't a recent pic.

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod

All I can think about is "bike lanes" every time someone mentions Prince and his bike, that old thread of CJ report seeing him out riding his bike comes to mind. That area needs bike lanes.
