Prince OD’d on Percocet Days Before Death
Prince reportedly OD'd on Percocet days before his death, reports TMZ.
The iconic artist is said to have ingested so many pills that EMTs had to administer a "save shot" at the airport where his plane made an emergency landing to save his life... earlier in the week.
Prince's team told responders he had taken the painkiller after his Atlanta concert, which triggered the emergency... and hospitalization.
TMZ reported that he checked himself out of the hospital against doctors orders, after they were unable to give him a private room.
Apparently, Prince had corrective surgery for his hips around 2010, and was taking painkillers for his surgery.
Prince died on Thursday morning (April 21) at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota.
