According to the National Enquirer, the iconic singer had been diagnosed with the HIV virus in the 90s but allegedly chose not to fight the disease because he was a Jehovah's Witness.
The paper also allege that the 'Purple Rain' singer was told he had only six months to live by doctors and that's why he allegedly took his own life by overdosing on a concoction of pain pills at his Paisley Park estate.
Furthermore, the paper claims there's footage from security cameras in the elevator that shows Prince taking deadly pills to purposefully end his life.
"These videos prove Prince wasn’t murdered as some have suggested,” a source claims. "They show he was alone, and committed suicide by overdose. The truth is, he knew he had only a few months to live. He didn't want to die a slow, lingering death. He cleared the property at Paisley park, then ate a bottle of pills the night before he was found collapsed and dead in the elevator. The tapes show all this.”
The insider goes on to claim: "He couldn’t take the pain the disease was causing him in its last stages. And he didn’t want to just slowly waste away. Prince said just a few nights before he died that fans would wait a few days before wasting any prayers on him. In retrospect an obvious tip-off that he knew he was going to die.”
According to TMZ, the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is now involved in the death investigation of the superstar, and law enforcement sources tell the site that drugs are the focal point of the criminal probe.
