Prince Was Supposed To Get Addiction Treatment The Day After He Died

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 9.18.13 AM

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.

Prince Dead At 57

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 8.40.43 AM

The artist known as Prince has died abruptly, at the young age of 57.

Multiple sources connected to the 7 time Grammy award winner confirm that he has passed, and TMZ reports that the musician’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning. An emergency dispatch call was made from Prince’s estate, calling a “male down, not breathing.”

The singer, who’s full name Prince Rogers Nelson, had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But then he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay, just battling the flu. At the show, Prince prophetically told the crowd, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.” So freaking sad.

Dude was a legend and we will miss him. This has been a tough year for musician deaths, hasn’t it?

Prince Is On The Mend!

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 8.40.43 AM

Prince isn’t here to disappoint!

The musician showed everyone he’s on the mend Saturday, making an appearance at $10 dance party around midnight, complete with his new guitar and piano. Awesome!

TMZ reported that Prince’s private plane made an emergency landing early Friday after a concert in ATL, and the legend was rushed to the hospital shortly thereafter.  Though everyone was in a panic, Prince reps told everyone he was battling the flu, and it was NBD.

We’re told Prince wanted people to have living proof he’s still living, so he popped over to the dance party at Paisley Park near his Minnesota home and hung out. He didn’t sing, but told the crowd, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.”
