Music legend Prince passed away unexpectedly in Minneapolis on April 21, 2016, at the age of 57. Many wondered if he knew something bad was coming.

A week before his death, Prince reportedly felt unwell on his private jet, with his agent blaming it on a bad flu. However, rumors swirled about a possible drug overdose involving a powerful painkiller.

According to celebrity news site TMZ, Prince received treatment for an opioid overdose just six days before he died. He was supposed to rest after spending a night in the hospital, but instead, he threw a huge party for 300 people at Paisley Park, his home and recording studio complex.

At midnight, Prince surprised everyone by taking the stage, not to sing, but to play a long set on his new purple piano. He assured the crowd he was okay, but also added a cryptic message: “Don’t waste your prayers, wait a few days.”

In light of his death, this statement now seems prophetic. Some of Prince’s family members also revealed that he had recently started writing his memoirs, completing around 50 pages before his passing.

These events sparked questions: Was Prince seriously ill? Did he take his own life? The rumors wouldn’t die down. While the official cause of death was flu-like symptoms, his brief hospitalization and the pre-party comments all added to the mystery surrounding Prince’s final days.

The investigation into Prince’s death focused on the possibility of prescription drug abuse. Law enforcement looked into whether a doctor had prescribed him painkillers in the weeks leading up to his passing. Although no definitive conclusions were made public about the source of the alleged overdose, the episode cast a shadow over Prince’s final chapter and fueled speculation about his health and well-being.
