Prince Treated For Drug Overdose Days Before Death

Prince was treated for a drug overdose six days before his death, multiple sources are telling TMZ.

Last Friday, Prince’s private jet made an emergency landing at Moline, Illinois hours after he had performed in Atlanta. It was reported then that he had the flu, but TMZ says the emergency was for something else:

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

Our sources further say 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 co. decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home.

We’re told when Prince left he “was not doing well.”

I’m so upset.

We’ll know the truth soon enough as investigators gather all the facts surrounding his death.

Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator in his Paisley Park studio in Minnesota on Thursday morning. He was pronounced dead minutes later.
