Prince's former bodyguard remembers star's wild days

Prince's former bodyguard has remembered the star's partying days.

The 'U Got The Look' hitmaker never did drugs and barely drunk, according to his former security guard, who he worked with in the 1980s.

Wallace Safford told "When we filmed Purple Rain, that was the prime of his life right there. He partied, but he didn't party. No drugs. He didn't do drugs. Not at all. I never knew him to drink either!"

Meanwhile, it was previously revealed that Prince's body was found in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota Thursday morning (21.04.16).

A statement from Carver County police read: "Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson reports that on April 21, 2016, at about 9:43 am, sheriff's deputies responded to a medical call at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen. When deputies and medical personnel arrived, they found an unresponsive adult male in the elevator.

"First responders attempted to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the victim. He was pronounced deceased at 10:07 am.

"He has been identified as Prince Rogers Nelson (57) of Chanhassen. The Carver County Sheriff's Office, with the assistance of the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office and The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office, are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding his death."
