Nearly two weeks after Prince's tragic passing, a new report has come out claiming that the iconic singer passed away just one day before his scheduled meeting with a drug addiction doctor.
As we've previously reported, the Purple Rain artist may have been addicted to Percocet even before his hip surgery back in 2010.

According to the Star Tribune, Dr. Howard Kornfeld, who specializes in opioid addiction treatment, was called by Prince's reps on April 20 to fly out to Minneapolis for "a grave medical emergency," as stated by Kornfeld's attorney, William Mauzy.
Though he couldn't fly over until two days later, Dr. Kornfeld sent his son, Andrew, on a flight to Paisley Park that night to explain the treatment plan, and as Mauzy revealed:
"The plan was to quickly evaluate his health and devise a treatment plan… The doctor was planning on a lifesaving mission."
His attorney also added Kornfeld's son arrived at Prince's residence at 9:30 A.M. on April 21, and that he was actually the one to call 911 after being one of three people to discover the 57-year-old in the elevator.
While it seems Prince really struggled with addiction in the days leading up to his death, his autopsy results have yet to be revealed.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with his loved ones during this difficult time.
