We just hope for answers!

As we reported, Prince's autopsy revealed that the singer died from a self-administered Fentanyl overdose.

But how did the music legend obtain the powerful opioid?!

That's what law officials are trying to figure out. As of now, state and federal prosecutors are investigating exactly how the 57-year-old received the potent substance.

According to sources, police are questioning whether a doctor prescribed the medication to a person who eventually gave it to the Purple Rain musician.

Authorities have already obtained search warrants for Prince's house, his primary physician, and the Walgreens pharmacy which filled his Rx. However, there is currently no link between the three points of interest.

If a doctor illegally prescribes a drug that kills a patient, he or she could face up to 25 years in jail.

All we want is for justice to be brought down on anyone that breaks the law!

Get the deets HERE!

Remember that big announcement Charlie Sheen promised he was going to make on Dr. Oz's talk show? Well, here it is!

On Tuesday, the actor revealed that he had temporarily stopped taking his HIV medication! It turns out that the 50-year-old had ditched his traditional medicine in the hopes of being cured south of the border!

The Two and a Half Men alum explained on The Dr. Oz Show that he wasn't afraid of running the risk of hurting his health, saying:

"I've been off my meds for about a week now. Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn't phase me at all."

For those of you who are completely shocked by this bold move, the Anger Management star told the 55-year-old that he was receiving alternative treatment from a doctor in Mexico.

He said that Dr. Sam Chachoua — who is not licensed to practice in the U.S. — had been working on a vaccine for HIV, but did not discuss details about the process.

Instead, Dr. Oz shared an audio recording of a phone conversation he had with the physician, who said:

This is the perfect karma!

After Martin Shkreli and his company Turing Pharmaceuticals bought a drug called Daraprim last month and jacked up its price from $13.50 per pill to $750, the Internet exploded with outrage.

The drug, which is used mostly for patients with HIV/AIDS, become unaffordable for virtually everyone in its intended market overnight, and Shkreli became a national villain — one whom it turns out was pretty creepy in his personal life, too.

Now, though, Imprimis Pharmaceuticals has taken up the cause by making a significantly cheaper generic alternative to the drug — and it's only going to cost patients $1 per pill!

The Imprimis Cares program is set to make drugs similar to Daraprim far more affordable to consumers. According to CEO Mark L. Baum:

Was Caitlyn Jenner Impaired By Her Meds During The Car Accident That Tragically Killed Kim Howe?! Kim's Step-Kids Seem To Think So!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersCaitlyn Jenner

They want to know everything she was taking!

Caitlyn Jenner may be off the hook for manslaughter, but she's STILL in the middle of a wrongful death battle over the February car crash that killed Kim Howe.

The victim's step-kids have filed legal papers that request the names of the medications the 65-year-old was taking at the time, because they think that they could have caused her driving to be impaired.

But, after the arrest, the former Olympian passed a field sobriety test — so authorities had deemed she was good to drive.

According to the docs, the reality star has deposed a paparazzo who was also involved, because she claims she was chased by a few photogs at the time of the crash.

It'll be very interesting to see how the rest of the lawsuit unfolds, considering officials had previously reported that Caitlyn wasn't impaired back then.

What do U think of all this, Perezcious readers?

XANAX?!

Yes, you heard us right!

Employees at this particular establishment were rightfully confused as smoke shops don't sell drugs, they only sell drug paraphernalia, i.e. equipment used to make, use, or store such substances.

Even if they did sell narcotics, it's very unlikely they would distribute prescription drugs like Xanax.

According to sources, the troubled RHOBH alum was

According to reports, the actor got intoxicated, destroyed his hotel room, and fell asleep in a hotel worker's office.

The Los Angeles native did around $450 worth of damage to his room and spent around $380 in food and beverages, which he refused to pay.

As we reported four months ago, Brendon was arrested in Idaho for "malicious injury to a property" which was triggered by him mixing prescription medication and alcohol.

He was in the area for a comic book convention that time as well.

Recently, the former WB star also split from his wife of five months.
