Prince Rogers Nelson

Prince died the day before keeping an appointment with a doctor specialising in drug addiction.

The Purple Rain singer passed away aged 57 on 21 April (16) at his Paisley Park mansion in Minnesota. U.S. authorities are yet to determine a cause of death pending the results of an autopsy.

According to a new report representatives of Prince sought the help of opioid addiction specialist Dr Howard Kornfield the day before the star’s death.

William Mauzy, an attorney acting for the family of Dr Howard Kornfield, tells the Minneapolis Star Tribune representatives of the music icon called the doctor on 20 April (16) because the musician, “was dealing with a grave medical emergency.”

Dr Kornfeld, who runs the Recovery Without Walls addiction clinic in Mill Valley California, planned to visit the singer on 22 April (16) but sent his son Andrew Kornfield a day ahead of him to Paisley Park.

“The plan was to quickly evaluate his health and devise a treatment plan,” Mauzy says. “The doctor was planning on a lifesaving mission.”

Andrew was expected to meet Prince on the morning of the 21 April (16) however, according to Mauzy, he arrived at the mansion moments before Prince’s body was discovered.

The paper reports that it was Andrew who called police officers to the scene when the body was found.

The caller told police officers, “The people are just distraught. We’re in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and we are at the home of Prince,” and was unable to specify an address.

Mauzy also told the publication that Andrew was allegedly in possession of a small amount of the opioid treatment drug Buprenorphine to enable Prince to begin his treatment, but the drug was not administered.

Less than a week before the musician’s death, his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois after he was found unconscious on the plane.
