Troubling News Emerges About Prince's Health

| by Charles Roberts

At least one news agency is reporting that Prince was treated for a drug overdose slightly less than a week before his death.

According to TMZ, Prince received treatment of some sort for a drug overdose six days ago. The details of the treatment are unconfirmed at this time. Similarly, TMZ is the only the media outlet currently reporting this news.

“Multiple sources in Moline tell us,” writes TMZ. “Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a ‘save shot’ ... typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.”

While this report remains unconfirmed, it does coincide with other stories regarding Prince looking “frail” prior to his death, as well as those citing his frequent trips to a nearby pharmacy over the past week.

We will update this story with more information as it comes in.
