Now the stories are starting to come full circle.

There's something shady about all of this…
As we previously reported, Andrew Kornfeld flew to be with the Raspberry Beret singer in order to help him with his painkiller addiction. What's odd about this situation is that it is Andrew's dad, Dr. Howard Kornfeld, who was asked by the late icon's rep to come help save Prince from himself.
Rather than just drop everything to be with the Grammy winner, the rehab specialist sent his son
Earlier this week we told you Sinead O'Connor made some serious accusations that Arsenio Hall supplied Prince with drugs, in addition to "spiking" her drink years ago at Eddie Murphy's house. The troubled singer also went on to claim that Hall is both Eddie and Prince's "b*tch" — which we suppose can be left open for interpretation. Woof.
In response, the 60-year-old comedian has slapped the singer with a $5 million defamation lawsuit. Mic drop.
The Arsenio Hall Show host also adds that he never drugged Sinead, who he claims he hasn't had contact with in more than 25 years.
Hall's suit also mentions the Ireland native actually "detested" Prince, once telling him to "go f*ck himself."
But all in all, Hall isn't surprised by Sinead's actions as he says she is "well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts."
Welp! Can't really argue with that one…

We're learning more about what might have happened to Prince.
While the toxicology and autopsy results aren't quite finished, the insider explained that the late legend has tested positive for the pain killer.
However, the confidante stressed that authorities aren't sure if the pill's presence had anything to do with the songsmith's death.
Whether or not the drug contributed to the musician's untimely end, sources have admitted that the rocker had been hooked on the opioid for years, and was even supposed to meet with an addiction specialist the day after he died.
Plus, we do know that the DEA and the US Attorney are both involved in the ongoing investigation.
But we won't know for sure how Prince died until his autopsy results come out.

If you feel like you've read this news before, that's because you basically have.
As we told you last week, a mid-level court made a decision that allowed the Andrea Constand case to go forward — and now, Cosby's attorneys have once again filed an emergency stay in response to that decision.
So basically any decision the court makes, Cosby's team appeals — then appeals again.
The actor's attorneys had been originally fighting the February ruling that decided against throwing out the case, since the previous District Attorney had apparently promised the star that he wouldn't be prosecuted over the alleged assault against the former Temple University employee.
The most recent filing states:
"If this court does not stay those proceedings, Mr. Cosby's fundamental due process right not to be prosecuted and not to be subject to the criminal proceedings will be irreparably lost. Mr. Cosby therefore files this application on an emergency basis."
So as you can see, this whole situation is just a lot of back and forth. Sigh.
No word yet from current Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele.

Well this could certainly complicate things.
On Thursday, it was reported that the man who dialed 911 in regards to Prince's death could be facing criminal charges for the part he played in the late Raspberry Beret singer's tragedy. What??
According to TMZ, Andrew Kornfeld had a synthetic opiate in his backpack at the time of the late icon's passing. It's said that Andrew's father runs a rehab center in Marin County, California. Whoa.
The pills that were discovered in Kornfeld's bag are predominantly used to help addicts wean off drugs like Percocet. In case you forgot, it's been rumored that
We can't say we're shocked by this development.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the U.S. Attorney's Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration will now investigate Prince's untimely April 21 death. The news comes on the heels of a report suggesting the singer attempted to seek help from a drug addiction specialist prior to his passing.
A spokesperson for the Carver County's sheriff's office revealed:
"They have agreed to provide federal resources and expertise in our investigation."
Wow. This is a HUGE deal.
If the singer's opiate addiction is proven to be true, we can only imagine how far this investigation will go. We bet many pharmacists and doctors will be questioned as to how the 57-year-old obtained all these drugs throughout the years.
What's even crazier about this new is we don't even have an official cause of death yet. This just proves how much other evidence authorities have!
So, what do YOU think of this development?
