A 911 Call Was Made About Prince’s Alleged Cocaine Habit Prior to Singer’s Death
New details have surfaced claiming that the music icon may have struggled with drugs prior to his death. According police records that have been just released by the Carver County Sheriff’s Department, someone had made an urgent 911 call for help because “the caller [was] concerned about Prince’s cocaine habits.”
The call logs stated that the caller said Prince had told her the year before in Germany that he “cannot control his habit.” The call was made on June 20, 2011, TMZ reports.
Authorities reportedly discussed the matter at hand after the caller hung up and called the woman back, telling her that the information was stale because a year a gone by then and there was no proof of Prince of being in immediate danger.
Prince passed away on April 21 at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. He was found unresponsive in an elevator in the morning. Emergency responders unsuccessfully performed CPR and he was pronounced dead on the scene at 10:07 AM local time. He was 57.
