London, Feb 24 : Legendary pop star Prince would soon be undergoing a secret hip replacement surgery, after being crippled due to years of sexy dancing.
If the pint-sized US star does not go for the operation, he would develop a severe limp, which would force him to use a walking stick.
Therefore, the star is getting himself admitted into a private hospital and would be operated upon at the age of just 49.
However, his supporters seem to be keeping him off work for almost 2 months, so that he can recover, but they are not spilling the beans on why the star is doing so.
The operation would take almost two hours and the ball and socket of the Purple Rain' singer's hip will be replaced with titanium substitutes.
"For months Prince has complained of pain every time he moves. He is totally crushed as he knows he will never be the same again," News Of The World quoted a source as saying.
