Prince "treated for drug overdose days before death"

Prince "treated for drug overdose days before death"

Celebrity news website TMZ is today reporting that Prince was treated for a drug overdose just 6-days before his death.

On the 15th of April Prince’s plane was forced to land in Moline, with representatives of the singer claiming he had the flu.

“Something we questioned because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing,” reports TMZ.

The website claims that the pop star was rushed to hospital where doctors gave him a ‘save shot’, which is typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate

It is alleged that his doctors advised him to remain in the hospital for 24 hours, but when he was unable to get a private room he and his entourage left, just three hours later.
