Prince was an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actor and director. He was praised for his work, vocal range and unique sense of fashion. The accomplished singer sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Shortly before his death in April of 2016, Prince’s representatives sought the help of Howard Kornfeld, an expert in treating opioid addiction. Unfortunately, by the time Kornfeld could send his send over for an evaluation, the beloved singer was already dead.
Like Tom Petty, Prince suffered from chronic hip pain and fentanyl was found in his system at the time of his death. Even though he had no prescription himself, Prince had plenty of prescribed painkillers at his estate.
