At least one of Prince's confidantes isn't adding to the overdose rumors!
According to one of the singer's former assistants Mariah Brown, he didn't take any pills and he was in great shape prior to his April 21 death. The employee worked with the 57-year-old up until last year.
Speaking on the creative's physical state when she knew him, Mariah revealed:
"He was a very, very healthy person. … That man has more energy than me, and anyone I know. The whole death didn't make sense to me. … He never came across as sick, or anything like that. "
Wow. This is such confusing info considering all other reports suggest the artist was addicted to Percocet for years.
Not only does M.B. describe working for the artist as "magical", but she also has a strong message for the haters:
"It's like people are coming out just to try and throw dirt on his name. It's sad. Let that man rest in peace. "
Well, we hope despite all the drama, Prince's amazing legacy will be preserved. The legend definitely deserves it.

On Wednesday at 6:07 p.m. EST, radio stations around the country will honor Prince together by simultaneously playing Nothing Compares 2 U.
The idea began at KCMP 89.3 in the Purple One's home town of Minneapolis.
Director Jim McGuinn says "The Current" asked fellow stations to join them in playing the Prince-written song — turned into a smash hit by Sinead O'Connor — to "honor the man we called our friend," saying:
"Like no artist in our lifetimes, Prince united people with his music. Black, white, young, old, rich, poor, he cut across all boundaries with music that touched on rock, funk, soul, pop, R&B, new wave and jazz, and the world responded."
Nothing Compares 2 U begins with the lament, "It's been 7 hours and 13 days since you took your love away" (Sinead's version is 15 days); 6:07 on May 4 will mark exactly 7 hours and 13 days since Prince's April 21 passing.
WFUV New York, WXPN Philadelphia, and KEXP Seattle are among the stations that have already agreed to join in.
You can ask your local station to participate in the tribute as well!

We're still so heartbroken by this news.
As you may know, comedian Patton Oswalt suffered a tragic loss two weeks ago when his wife Michelle McNamara passed away in her sleep.
The true crime writer was tragically young, only 46 years old when she died. Since then her husband and their 7-year-old daughter Alice have been busy keeping her memory alive.
We've already heard Alice's unbelievably mature response to her mother's passing, and now Patton is sharing his own heartfelt thoughts on his family's loss.
The comic is featured in TIME this week where he penned a touching tribute to his wife, saying:
Such sad news.
According to reports, the businessman died at his London home surrounded by family following a "short illness."
The 44-year-old actor was extremely close to his father, who often attended many Hollywood events with his famous son and daughter-in-law Isla Fisher.
Our hearts go out to Sacha and his family during this difficult time.

One woman claims she was related to Prince, even though she hasn't been listed as one of his heirs.
Darcell Gresham Johnston has filed legal documents alleging that she's the musician's half sister, even asking for a piece of the superstar's estate.
Since the late legend didn't leave a will before his tragic passing, Minnesota state law declares that his vast fortune will be split between his surviving heirs — AKA his only full sibling and five half siblings.
However, Miz Johnston isn't one of these six siblings, meaning no one knew she was supposedly related to the rocker.
But sources are saying that this new woman is actually the icon's long-lost half sister, and that she and the artist have different fathers but share the same mother.
In fact, insiders allege that family members didn't even know Darcell existed until a few days ago.
As the administrator of the singer's estate, Bremer Trust will look into the claim, but the court will have the final say on its legitimacy.

What a tragic end to an already sad tale.
Catfish is supposed to be a show about bringing star-crossed couples together, but unfortunately not every love story gets a happy ending.
It's with a heavy heart we must report that Ashley Sawyer, a participant on the MTV show from back in Season Two, was found dead at age 23 on Monday.
Ashley's cause of death is not currently known, but fans will remember her as the subject who realized she and her love interest Michael Fortunato were both "catfishing" each other.
What makes this news even sadder, however, is that Michael actually passed away from a pulmonary embolism at age 26 just a month after their episode aired in 2013.
Hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph each took to social media on Monday night to honor Ashley's memory, saying:
