So sad.

According to the Star Tribune, the late Prince was supposed to meet with a doctor specializing in addiction treatment the day after he died, to deal with a “grave medical condition.” Ugh.

Dr. Howard Kornfeld, a national authority on opioid addiction, could not meet on April 21st so he sent his son, Andrew, to meet with the singer beforehand. The plan was, Dr. Kornfeld was supposed to come the following day, and Andrew (who works with him at the Recovery Without Walls clinic with his dad) was going to outline the course of treatment. Sadly, Andrew is the person who called 911 to report Prince was lifeless in the elevator.

TMZ reports that Dr. Kornfeld was initially contacted by one of Prince’s reps, who said the singer “was dealing with a grave medical emergency.” As it stood, Prince almost died from an overdose of Percocet 6 days before he was found in the elevator, and then, tragedy befell him almost a week later, just hours before he may have gotten some help or pathway into recovery.

This breaks my heart.
