Jamie Lee Curtis Opens Up About Battling Drug Addiction In Light Of Prince's Death

Jamie Lee Curtis

Wow. This is powerful.

In light of new reports suggesting Prince died as a result of drug addiction, Jamie Lee Curtis penned an emotional essay about her own personal battle with painkillers.

In hopes of raising awareness about the dangers of opiate use, the 57-year-old actress wrote in Huffington Post:

"I too, waited anxiously for a prescription to be filled for the opiate I was secretly addicted to. I too, took too many at once. I too, sought to kill emotional and physical pain with pain killers. Kill it. Make it stop.

Too many of our fellow humans, famous, infamous, and not famous at all, have sought the same relief. The symbolism of James Taylor's Fire and Rain,an anthem of addiction, seems more poignant as now it is a purple rain, another loss to drug addiction."

Prince

As we know, Prince was an extremely private person — especially when it came to his health.

In a new piece by The New York Times, close friends to the music icon admit the late singer assured them "nothing was wrong" leading up to his tragic death at the age of 57 last month.

The Kiss singer reportedly told members of his inner circle everything was fine in the days after his private plane had to make an emergency landing due to a medical concern. At the time, Prince's reps told the media he was battling flu-like symptoms.

NYT says Prince proved to be doing OK as he organized a house party and rode a bike in a mall parking lot shortly after.

Wow, this is all so mysterious.

While most friends didn't notice a change in the musician, others say Prince admitted to feeling depressed.

Rather than just drop everything to be with the Grammy winner, the rehab specialist sent his son
