Did Two Of Prince's Doctors Cross The Line & Contribute To The Singer's Fatal Drug Overdose? Here's What Police Are Working On Now!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad SadHealthAddiction


It may be several months before we know exactly what led to Prince's fatal overdose back in April.

As the criminal death investigation rages on, TMZ reports three agencies — the FBI, the DEA, and the Carver County District Attorney's Office — are all working together to determine if two of the 57-year-old's doctors crossed the line with giving Prince access to drugs.

The medical professionals in question? We've told you their names before, physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld.

As a refresher, Schulenberg and Kornfeld's son Andrew were both present in the Purple Rain musician's home when he was found dead in his elevator after OD'ing on Fentanyl. Andrew had tons of synthetic opiates to treat addiction in his possession.

Since the tragic passing, Schulenberg has not been working at his clinic while poppa Kornfeld continues to practice at his Marin County, CA office.

If the state files charges against either or both of the doctors, the case will go to the District Attorney instead of the grand jury.

Woof. We're just hoping for some concrete answers sooner rather than later.

Police Investigating If Prince Died From Fatal Mix Of Drugs — Who Could Be To Blame?

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad Sad


Not long after Prince's passing was confirmed last month, it was revealed that the Purple Rain singer reportedly struggled with an almost decade long addiction to Percocet.

According to TMZ, police are investigating a possible fatal mix of drugs as the music icon's cause of death.

Although toxicology results have not yet been revealed, authorities have interest to see if the artist had a combination of Percocet and Buprenorphine in his system.

This could potentially explain why Prince's doctor Michael Schulenberg and the son of California rehab Dr. Howard Kornfeld, Andrew Kornfeld, were both present when the 57-year-old passed.

Schulenberg says he went to Prince's home to hand deliver test results, while Kornfeld says he was there to deliver Buprenorphine pills — which are used to treat opiate addiction — to the singer's local doctor. Hmm… Coincidence?

The outlet reports that medical experts say combining Percocet and Buprenorphine can be deadly as both drugs suppress breathing and can create a "dangerous synergistic effect."

If results show both drugs in the singer's system, both doctors will be questioned again to get to the bottom of who should be held responsible.

We'll let you know as soon as a toxicology report becomes available.
