Just say no to drugs!
Minnesota police have released 911 calls about the late popstar. The most recent phone call is woman who said she was concerned about his "cocaine habits" and was placed back in 2011.
The log says, "He advised her last year in Germany that he cannot control his habit and she was advised to report it."
The woman's name was redacted and the Carver County Sheriff's Office noted at the time that because the information the woman gave was a year old and that the singer did not seem to be "in immediate danger," the authorities marked the incident as closed.
It's too bad that the call wasn't taken more seriously -- perhaps there could have been a different outcome?
There are no details as to why the mystery woman waited a year to call in her concern. She also gave no proof that Prince was using drugs of any kind, however, Prince did travel to Germany in 2010 for a European tour -- so that fact is correct.
While autopsy results are still pending, it's being reported that Prince was found with prescription painkillers when he died. Authorities told NBC News that the music icon had pills in his possession at the time of death and elsewhere in his home, and local Sheriff Jim Olson told reporters that day that there were “no signs” of trauma on Prince’s body.
Olson added that medical responders did not use Narcan, an emergency treatment to reverse drug overdoses, when they responded to the 911 call. We reported last week that sources had told TMZ Prince was first prescribed the powerful painkiller Percocet in 2009 when he suffered from hip problems, and despite a corrective surgery in 2010, he became addicted to the pills.
Federal law enforcement officials are currently investigating who prescribed the drug and who filled the prescriptions. Prince was found dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota, on April 21, and an autopsy was completed the following day. Authorities said during a press conference that it could be weeks before the results will be released, as they are running a full panel of tests to determine the cause of death.
Meanwhile, Sinead O'Connor has taken to Facebook to claim that Arsenio Hall gave Prince drugs for years.
The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer wrote, "Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades…. Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince's and Eddie Murphy's b----)." The unstable singer wrote, "Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Aresenio I've reported you to the Carver County Sherrif's (sic) office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie Murphy's house. You best get tidying your man cave."
"The statement regarding Arsenio Hall is absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd," said Arsenio's rep Traci Harper.
