Prince was reportedly weighing a scary 80 lbs at the time of his death on April 21 and it was allegedly due to his battle with AIDS. The Grammy-winner was reportedly addicted to painkillers because he refused treatment, hoping God would cure him.
This is just so sad. Prince, standing at only 5’2,” was reportedly skin and bones, weighing just 80lbs when he was found dead in an elevator inside his Minnesota estate, Paisley Park. Prince had reportedly contracted HIV in the 90s and because he supposedly refused medical treatment, the singer allegedly contracted full blown AIDS just six months before his death. Prince knew his days were numbered, according to a new report, and was “very weak.”
“Doctors told Prince his blood count was unusually low and that his body temperature had dropped dangerously below the normal 98.6 degrees to 94 degrees,” a new report in the National Enquirer claims. “He was totally iron-deficient, very weak and often disoriented. He rarely ate and when he did, it all came right back up.” Prince, a Jehovah’s Witness, went against doctors orders and allegedly told friends, “God can — and will — cure me.” Prince hope to live through the summer but his immune system was so weak that he collapsed at his home just a few days after reportedly overdosing on percocet on his private plane. “[Prince’s] face was yellowish,” an insider claims. “The skin on his neck was hanging off, and the tips of his fingers were a brownish-yellow color.”
Authorities confirmed that prescription painkillers were found on him when he died and now the DEA is reportedly investigating. The autopsy has been completed but friends, family and fans are waiting for the results of the toxicology report, which could take weeks. “Prince’s loved ones are showing interest in hiding the true cause of his death,” the Enquirer goes on to claim. “Prince’s family is already banging on coroner’s door and demanding officials heavily redact any public autopsy report to spare family, friends and fans any information about his lifestyle that’s sure to come.”
