#Declassified! Search Warrant Reveals Prince (@prince) Had Pills Throughout Paisley Park!

There is not a day that goes by that we do not miss Prince.

It is hard to believe it has almost been a year since his untimely demise and he is still grieved by the entire world. Naturally, his cause of death was controversial; and rumors of his health and chemical dependency have been running rampant, but now thanks to a newly revealed search warrant, the rock star may have had a real “pill popping problem.”

According to new docs, law enforcement found Ziploc bags with pills as well as envelopes containing pills.

The docs bear out what TMZ has reported … Prince’s bodyguard was the person who went to a Walgreens pharmacy the day preceding the singer’s death to fill prescriptions, including Percocet.

And, Prince used an alias — Peter Bravestrong — and cops found a suitcase with that name that contained pill bottles along with the lyrics for the song, “U Got the Look.”

The main doctor who was treating Prince — Dr. Michael Schulenberg — admitted to a detective he had prescribed Prince Oxycodone the same day Prince OD’d on a jet — 6 days before he died. The doctor put the Rx in Prince’s bodyguard’s name.

Prince would regularly get B12 injections before his concerts to feel better and they were set up through his managers.

And this is interesting … Prince didn’t use a cellphone … apparently because he was once hacked and didn’t trust it. His communications were through emails and landlines.

This all looks bad, but it is honestly not surprising. Prince is not the first, and he certainly will not be the last, star we learn uses opiates. He also most likely will not be the last to succumb to them as well. Substance abuse and chemical dependency are very real problems that even being a megastar cannot cure.

Shawn ‘Jay Z‘ Carter never fails at putting his money where his mouth is. The Tidal music streaming service owner wants streaming rights to all of the late great Prince‘s unreleased music; and according to TMZ he is willing to pay up to $40 million for it!

Apparently the NYC rapper and business man flew out Tyka Nelson, which is Prince’s only full-blood sister, and her husband Maurice Phillips, to New York for a meeting to discuss the iconic Prince’s music that has not yet been released. $40 million sounds like a pretty generous offer, however, Jay Z is not the only one bidding and Tyka is not the only person who’s approval is required for the deal. The rest of Prince’s family would have to sign off on the agreement in order for it to happen.
