The report comes after a source told the Star Tribune last month that the painkiller Percocet, an opioid, was present in Prince's body when he was found dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minneapolis.
A week prior to his death, Prince's plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where he was transported to a nearby hospital. A source very close to the situation told ET that Prince was battling the flu, which turned into walking pneumonia. In addition, the "Purple Rain" singer was dealing with a hip injury and had a problem with Percocet, according to the source. We are told his issue with the powerful narcotic began years ago, shortly after he underwent hip replacement surgery in 2010.
