This is so sad.
Prince, who died yesterday, wasn’t battling “the flu” as he said…instead, he was being treated for a drug overdose 6 days before his death.
Prince’s private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, hours after he performed in Atlanta. At the time his reps said he was battling the flu which seemed suspect, considering his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing. TMZ reports:
Multiple sources in Moline tell us, Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a “save shot” … typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.
Our sources further say doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn’t possible … Prince and co. decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home.
We’re told when Prince left he “was not doing well.”
We know authorities in Minnesota are trying to get the hospital records from Moline to help determinecause of death.
Yeah, I’m interested to know what drug use he was struggling with, and honestly, what his thoughts were during his last couple days of life. Such a sad day. Here’s one of my favorite Prince songs, written for Cyndi Lauper. Sigh.
