Headlines are burning the internet with the news on Prince’ caused of death. Reports say that Prince died of opioid overdose according to a law enforcement official based on the tests they conducted on the singer. Prince, 57, was found dead April 21 at his Minneapolis-area estate.
The singer’s death came less than a week after his plane made an emergency stop for medical treatment in Moline, Illinois, while returning from an Atlanta concert. The official said Prince was found unconscious on the plane and that first responders gave him a shot of Narcan, an antidote used in suspected opioid overdoses.
Prince had a reputation for clean living, and some friends said they never saw any sign of drug use. However, his longtime friend and collaborator Sheila E. said that Prince had physical issues from performing, citing hip and knee problems that she said came from years of jumping off risers and stage speakers in heels.
