It's been said that Prince's abuse of opioids may've been the result of his chronic hip pain that hindered his physical activity levels. One of the Raspberry Beret artist's old collaborators named Sky Dangcil theorized the Grammy winner "took the pills to keep the show going."
Oh no! Apparently, when Prince couldn't deal with his pain any longer he would reportedly travel to his estate in Turks and Caicos in order to "rest his hips." As you may know, Sky was both a DJ and a violinist for the Minnesota native between 2000 and 2007.

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.
