Prince Allegedly Had a Drug Overdose Just Days Ago
The 57-year-old entertainer, who died on Thursday (April 21), reportedly was given a “save shot” after his plane had an emergency landing and he was rushed to the hospital, according to TMZ.
Prince was only in the hospital for three hours and was advised to stay for 24 hours. After he was not given a private room, the singer’s team decided to have him discharged even though he was “not doing well,” sources say.
The save shot is normally given to “counteract the effects of an opiate” and Minnesota authorities have requested the hospital records from the Moline, Ill. hospital to help figure out the cause of death.
An autopsy is scheduled to be performed on Friday.
