As we reported, sources close to the 57-year-old said the musician was prescribed Percocet in 2009 and slowly became addicted.

On April 15 after a performance in Atlanta, the Grammy winner reportedly overdosed on the drug while in flight, prompting the plane to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois. Police are trying to figure out if a doctor was present for this ordeal.

Additionally, officials are investigating what type of drugs were on the plane, and what kind were at his Paisley Park house.

As we wrote on Thursday, police obtained a warrant to search his Minnesota mansion.

Our thoughts and prayers go to Prince's friends and family during this difficult time.

Apparently the celeb is reacting to two different external substances. Dr. Joseph clarified:

"One that's been added, another one that has been taken away."

It turns out that the momma-of-two has been having a bad reaction after switching her birth control pill. But, that wasn't the only thing messing with her system.

The docs also concluded that the MTV personality was suffering from marijuana withdrawals! It was the combination of ditching the drug and changing her contraception that brought on the medical mystery.

Oh no!

UPDATE THURSDAY 8:46 PM EST: Big Ang's family has already reached their fundraising goal! In only two days, the campaign raised far more than the $25,000 target!

According to the crowdfunding site, hundreds of generous donors gifted $36,941 for the lovely lady's treatment!


This is such sad news.

Last year, we learned that Big Ang's cancer has returned. And now, we're getting more bad news about her current treatment.

On Tuesday, the Mob Wives star's sister, Janine Detore, revealed that she has not been responding to her chemotherapy.

The VH1 alum's sibling created a GoFundMe page, discussing her current condition, writing:

"As you know my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 brain and lung cancer. Chemotherapy was started January 5 th. On January 26th the doctor reviewed her CT scan and informed us that the treatment was not working, and in fact one tumor grew larger and the other tumors had no change. We were advised that she would start immunotherapy the following week."

Oh no.

While she mentioned Ang isn't on the brink of death, she did say that the TV personality is really struggling with her breathing, and is in an incredible amount of pain.

So, the bar owner's sister suggested cannabis oil to reduce the pain. Unfortunately, the product is pretty pricey, which is why the famous family turned to crowdfunding. Janine wrote:
