There are rumors abound that Prince‘s tragic death on April 21 was the result of a massive overdose, but that’s blatantly false, according to his lawyer, L. Londell McMillan. Prince lived a “clean and healthy lifestyle,” and was fine before his death, L. Londell told the Associated Press. Click through to read his full remarks!

L. Londell spoke to the Associated Press on Monday, April 25, and said that he had just spoken to Prince, whom he had known for 25 years, on Sunday, April 17. He had just heard the news that Prince’s plane made an emergency landing in Illinois due to a medical emergency on April 15. [Prince] said he was doing perfect,” he said. “[Prince] said, ‘OK, I’ll call you soon.'”
He shot down the rumors that the reason the plane had to make that emergency landing was a massive drug overdose — or that illicit drugs were the reason Prince shockingly passed away at the too-young age of 57 at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. L. Londell says that Prince was “not on any drugs that would be any cause for concern,” and nobody should have jumped to that conclusion.
“Everybody who knows Prince knows he wasn’t walking around drugged up. That’s foolish. No one ever saw Prince and said, ‘He looks high.’ It wasn’t what he was about,” L. Londell said. Though an autopsy was completed on Friday, April 22, Prince’s cause of death has not yet been released. The rockstar had been battling flu for several weeks.
