Prince was a mystical character, and it seems he stayed glittering and mysterious until the very end. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY on May 4 that even some of his closest friends were floored when they found out about his addictions and health problems.
Since Prince passed away, more and more reports have come out detailing what may have lead to his tragic death. Shockingly, many of his closest friends had no more knowledge of his apparent drug addictions and health problems than the public did. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that may were in “total disbelief” about the news. Here’s the scoop.
“Many close friends of Prince are in total disbelief as to all the news about him since his passing,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “While some of those close to Prince during his final days may have known what was going on with him, many of his long-time friends and ex’s over the years had no idea.”
How tragic! “Much of what has come out since his death about his alleged drug use and health issues have blown away his old friends,” the source continued. “We have all been stunned about the drugs and AIDS reports. His ex-girlfriends, and others close to him are in total shock that Prince may have had a double life.”
The Prince his friends knew was totally the opposite of the man being described since his death. “What we knew of the Prince we loved, was that he was an artist who was very kind, generous, who never drank or did drugs and was always healthy,” the source explained. “The news coming out that he was maybe sick or was addicted to drugs is news to us. It was like he led a double life. It is all very bizarre and hard to believe. His death was a sad, unexpected surprise which has left us all grief-stricken.” Our hearts go out to his heartbroken friends during this difficult time.
