Did a Drug Overdose Kill Music Legend Prince?


42116-prince-getty-04Music legend Prince was treated for a drug overdose 6 days before his death according to sources who spoke to TMZ.

According to TMZ,  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. However, this did not make sense because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing.

According to sources in Moline who spoke to TMZ, Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a “save shot” … typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.

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 his entourage decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home.

According to TMZ’s sources: Prince “was not doing well” when he left.
