R.I.P.

We're learning more about what might have happened to Prince.

On Wednesday, Star Tribune reported that a source close to the investigation of the icon's passing has revealed that the artist had Percocet in his system when he died.

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.

Reports have also said that the emergency landing the 57-year-old made the week before his death was so he could receive emergency treatment for an overdose.

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.

We have a feeling gems like this are going to be popping up for a long time.

It's been nearly two weeks since Prince was found dead in his Minnesota recording studio, and secret moments from his life are still just surfacing for the first time.

For instance, did you know that the 57-year-old musician once had an underground show with Kendrick Lamar at his Paisley Park estate two years before his death?!

Apparently, the two Grammy winners — who interestingly enough each have seven gramophones to their name — performed What's My Name for a crowd of superfans back in 2014, and the video finally found its way online this week!

They sound as AH-Mazing as you'd expect, but the real treat is just getting to see Prince like we've literally never seen him before.

Rest in peace, sweet Prince.

At least one of Prince's confidantes isn't adding to the overdose rumors!

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.
