It was revealed on Thursday (June 2) that Prince died from an opioid overdose, and now more details have been revealed via a statement from the Midwest Medical Examiner.

Gene Simmons Calls Prince's Death 'Pathetic,' Issues Apology Statement

Rocker Gene Simmons has issued an apology after calling Prince‘s sudden death last month “pathetic” in an interview with Newsweek.

“But how pathetic that he killed himself,” the 66-year-old entertainer said. “Don’t kid yourself, that’s what he did. Slowly, I’ll grant you…but that’s what drugs and alcohol is: a slow death.”

Gene later took to Twitter to apologize.

“I just got such sh*t from my family for my big mouth again. I apologize – I have a long history of getting very angry at what drugs do to the families/friends of the addicts. I get angry at drug users because of my experience being around them coming up in the rock scene. In my experience they’ve made my life, and the lives of their loved ones, difficult. I was raised in a culture/crowd where drug addicts were written off as losers, and since that’s the narrative I grew up with, it’s been hard to change with the times.”
