Will Smith Offered Prince Big Loot For A Private Performance

Will Smith and his wife Jada were willing to shell out the cash for a private performance by Prince.

(AllHipHop News) Married actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith once offered Prince $400,000 to perform at a private party.

The "Purple Rain" icon regularly played lucrative private gigs, and one three-year-old memo reveals the Smiths were among those willing to pay big bucks to treat 100 guests to a very special night out in Los Angeles, scheduled for September 17, 2015.

It appears the bash was arranged to celebrate Jada's birthday, as she turned 44 the following day.

It's not known if Prince agreed to headline the event, but the note was among the treasure trove of paperwork recovered by Minnesota police following the superstar's untimely death at his Paisley Park estate on April 21, 2016.

Authorities at the Carver County Sheriff's Office released the documents last week, days before the second anniversary of the singer's passing, after declaring no criminal charges would be filed in relation to Prince's death from an accidental drug overdose.

Investigators determined there was no evidence to suggest he knowingly took powerful painkiller fentanyl, as it appeared he had been taking counterfeit Vicodin pills laced with the drug.

He did not have a prescription for the medication.
