TMZ reports that Prince suffered a drug overdose just six days before he died. It turns out it wasn’t the flu that caused his plane made an emergency landing in Illinois; it was something far more dangerous.
Prince was rushed to a hospital on April 15 after his flight made an emergency landing due to his health. Now the site is reporting that the singer needed a “save shot” from a doctor in order to combat an opiate overdose. This is way off of the initial claims that he had been taken ill with the flu and needed immediate attention.
The site also claims that doctors advised the legendary musician to stay in the hospital for at least a day, but that his people demanded that he get a private room. When they were told "that wasn't possible," Prince and his entourage flew back home after spending only three hours in the hospital. TMZ also notes that their sources said that when Prince left he “was not doing well.”
