A number of scandalous details have been released on the death of Prince, including an alleged secret addiction to drugs.
On Saturday, Daily Mail released statements from the late singer's supposed drug dealer who's goes by the name Doctor D, claiming Prince was addicted to opiates for more than 25 years, spending "up to $40,000 a time on six-month supplies of Dilaudid pills and Fentanyl patches." According to Doctor D, the Purple One couldn't perform on stage without them.
Doctor D mentions a physician could be the one who accidentally contributed to Prince's death by prescribing strong pain killers for the singer's hip problem and without knowing about his addiction to opiates.
Allegedly, Prince may have already been an addict before he and his dealer met.
"I first met Prince in 1984 when he was filming the movie Purple Rain and he was already majorly addicted to opiates," Doctor D said. "I didn't hook him on drugs and he was already a really heavy user. In the beginning he would by speed as well as Dilaudid. I would sell him Black Beauties which were a black pill and Cross Tops which were also speed pills."
The dealer claims Prince purchased these substances to counteract his anxiety.
"He needed the drugs because he was so nervous--he could be nervous in a room with just five people in it," he explained. "He was scared to go out in public, he was scared to talk to people and didn't like to go on stage--he had the worst case of stage fright I'd ever seen. A lot of performers rely on drugs to make them feel confident on stage, but he was by far the worst."
According to sources, Prince was treated by doctors for a Percocet overdose just six days before he died. And according to Doctor D, this could've contributed to his death.
"If Prince was just taking Dilaudid, he would still be alive," he said. "It has less side effects than other opiate drugs such as Percocet, but doctors don't like to prescribe it because it's one of the heaviest drugs. The problem with Percocet is that it is an opiate mixed with Tylenol--but he would have been taking much more than the recommended dose because he had developed a tolerance to opiates over the years."
