Prince arriving barefoot at jazz bar Ronnie Scott's in London

Remember I told you that Prince installed a state-of-the-art security system at his Paisley Park complex? The National Enquirer reports police seized video from the surveillance system that shows Prince committing suicide by overdosing on prescription drugs.

National Enquirer -- Superstar Prince’s tragic final moments as he died from a drug overdose in an elevator at his Minnesota studio were caught on camera — and police have seized the chilling images!

Now in a world exclusive, The National ENQUIRER is revealing inside details of the “Purple Rain” sensation’s heartbreaking end — and re-creating the dramatic images seen by investigators that could lead to criminal charges for the pushers who provided the fatal cocktail.

The video, captured by security cameras in Prince’s Paisley Park compound, indicates the 5-foot-2 star overdosed on prescription pain pills because he was facing a sad, painful end from AIDS, a highly placed source said.

    But most of the time you cant tell what's "paid for" vs what's just made up. That's the big problem.

    TMZ is reporting that Prince was scheduled to see an addiction doctor a day after his death.

  • LeBrick James

    ...with the fake ( or "re-created") pics and all.

  • Monday

    He is DEAD. Can't he R I.P??

  • LeBrick James

    Yeah ok.. TMZ.

    Meanwhile, LeBrick James is reporting that Beyonce will be staying at his house for the weekend.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I'm over all the Prince coverage.

    I don't believe it either...

    Prince, Whitney and MJ died of drugs and sickness but

  • LeBrick James

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Let that man rest.

  • melissaisasnob

    What do you have planned?

  • MookieFly

    That is so incredibly tacky smh. If they wanted to run the story to sell mags, it's whatever. But the fact that they went as far as to create fake photos is disgusting.

    Watching the NBA playoffs, of course!

  • nucynu25

    Am not a conspiracy theorist but who gets the rights to this music ..wasn't Prince's safe broke in to? These artist are worth more dead then alive..pretty soon sprites will be coming out with all of this creative music filled with rhytm & soul ...they'll be praised for bringing back music but it'll just be the stolen music of our legends #culturalvultures

    Oh wow. I really want this to be over with I want this man to RIP. This is sad and it's not going to stop no time soon either.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    My dumb self thought you were actually talking about Lebron James.

  • Di Ana

    I absolutely love love love love me some Prince. On a serious note, he did sleep around back in the day like there was no tomorrow, and as he got older Prince liked himself some young girls 18, 20, etc so it is not far fetch that he didn't have AIDS.

  • Shana

    Hello, mental health professional here :-)
    It's a known fact that suicide by gun is a popular choice for men who opt to kill themselves.
    Women typically take pills for a couple of reasons. 1 - because they are concerned about how they will look when they are found and 2 - because pills take time and they don't hurt and maybe, just maybe someone will save them in time, it's almost like a cry for help, but if it work, it works.
    If this is true about Prince, is it a possibility that he was crying for help? Would he have hoped someone would come and find him?

  • A D N

    I'm slowly shifting to believing he had AIDS. I mean, is it really that unbelievable? I don't know about the overdose yet...an addiction, probably.

  • Sheyonce

    Right....they also report on big foot sightings.

  • Shana

    Let me see your tootsie roll!
    Not really - just finishing your name/song

  • MissyJ

    So they finally ran the two death theories together....

  • A D N

    It's probably not possible he wanted to be found because he was in an elevator. Then again, another site reported he had an appointment on "the day" with an addiction specialist. Prince tend to identify with female qualities so if your information applies to women suicide methods, I can see him taking pills to end his life...if that was his intent.

  • A D N

    No one is disputing them...

  • charallday

    Yup, Ozzy, Ted Nugent racist and ugly ass. Ummmm, let's see, hell alllll of aerosmith, motley crue, sheesh all the hair bands of the 80s

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I doubt that he thought someone would come and find him. It is reported that the staff had dropped him off and retired for the night. I do believe the issue with his hip played a role in any self medicating, but I don't he meant to kill himself, I think he was very sick and no one really knew how bad because he was such a private person.

  • Empress

    Could this be a way that they try to bring charges on family members who are supposed to inherit his estate? If they are found guilty of manslaughter would that nullify them being able to inherit? If so, who gets all that money and the royalties then? I am not a conspiracy theorist but I am watching this. There are too many stories about "Who gets the money" When the law in clear in that State. It goes to the closest relatives(in this case siblings) like every other death without a Will.

  • Lovelove

    This is a man who lived via his music and he never EVER ever made mention of suicide or references to it. But because you are, for some reason, so eager and quick to tarnish his name, a name that was kept out of scandal and unsavory situations, you are forcing AIDS and suicide down our throats...if we choose to visit this blog. So now the f*cking National Enquirer knows what really went down from an "insider"? I could call a paper and say Anything and who would know if it is true or not? Stop with the ugliness....it has a way of coming back to you.

  • nucynu25

    Exactly , it's just too much & it's not adding up.

  • Byubabe

    Will people just let Prince rest in peace. No one brought up David Bowie's bisexual past after he past. It is always our artist whose names are drug through the mud after they are deceased. Enough already!!!!

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Respectfully,

  • SpideySense

    I wouldn't scoff at the Enquirer so easily. They have also broken many major news stories over the years, such as:

    1) Pres. Candidate John Edwards cheating on his dying wife and fathering a love child with her. He also illegally used campaign funds for their liasons. The Enquirer broke the story

    2) Jesse Jackson's adulterous ways and his secret lovechild

    3) During the OJ Simpson trial the Enquirer dug up photos of The Juice wearing the same brand shoes that the killer wore. He claimed at the time that he would never be caught in such ugly shoes. Guess they caught him

    4) Rush Limbaugh and his addiction to pain killers. He denied then admitted this after the story broke.

    5) numerous other cheating politicians

    The Enquirer is actually way more credible than people would like to believe.

  • Lovelove

    Yes I am a Prince supporter and sensitive abt all of this.

  • A D N

    I understand your point. And I'm certainly not one to dispute what a person will or will not do when I'm not around to witness first hand. But is it really that unbelievable that Prince can have AIDS and pass from it? Or, what about the addiction to pain medicine? Is it possible he could have had a dependency on medication?
    I totally get what you are saying and would love a person like you in my corner if I ever needed a character witness lol.

  • Phillybruh

    Why can't out black artist just be allowed to die, I don't recall David Bowies sorted past being brought up when he passed, why do we allow them to tarnish our artist name in such a away. I'm glad his family cremated him, so whether he had AIDS or not will never be dignified with a concrete answer.

    When did we see pictures of MJ's dead body. I recall Whitneys casket shot but nothing of MJ's. But the point I'm making is why tarnish his name.

  • Byubabe

    I posted the exact same thing below. I'm sick of it...

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    ? You know whet...? ?

  • Lovelove

    Yes it's all possible. I actually believe it was an accidental prescription drug overdose and I believe he was addicted or real close to it. I believe the pain from injuries lead to the pills and then addiction began. I just hate AIDS and suicide allegations being poured all over this man. Prince was not perfect but his only "scandal" in 40 years of being in a cutthroat business was battling with Warner Brothers. And why isn't SR posting the story abt him seeking help (but he died before he could meet the Doctor)? Why? Because that leads to believe he had an addiction and wanted help and to live and survive, not kill himself because of AIDS. I just thought SR was above the messiness. But anyway...I'm all in my purple feelings...lol??

    Addicted to prescription pain pills, I can believe. Guys like him and Mike put a lot of stress and strain on their bodies by performing like they are still in their early 20's.

    I don't believe it's AIDS. It is not far fetched but even his later music he was singing about getting it in. Though a little cleaner with it but still nonetheless. He was married to Mayte and Manuela ...I doubt the both would have stayed quiet on that and what about his latest girlfriend Damaris Lewis and she was like 23, Black and beautiful. While he says that's just his muse, she was with him at all the bball games and events annd stayed with him at his home. Hell what about Tamar Davis?

    LA Reid said it was ironic that Prince was found dead end in an elevator. He said he asked Prince what was the elevator in his 'Let's Go Crazy' lyrics 'Don't Let The Elevator Bring Us Down.'

  • ATL White Guy

    Regardless, he was a musical genius the like of which we may not see again for a long time. He was also very instrumental in championing artists rights against the bad contracts that many musicians signed thinking that the recording conglomerates had their best interests at heart. I celebrate his life & music and ignore the speculation around how he died. I just know he unfortunately did.

  • luvlives

    These are blatant lies!!! None of those cameras inside Paisley so there is no way the Enquirer has any "final moments" footage. When will we stop trying to discredit and demean our black artists? You couldn't do it while he lived so I guess you will try now.

    Between him and Michael Jackson, MJ was the bigger star, but Prince was definitely a better musician... maybe the greatest pure musician of this generation. I'm not expecting to see anybody on his level again in my lifetime.

    I love me some Prince.

  • charallday

    But if you know anything about Prince he was not a man in those terms, like when ppl say he shaded trey songs when he sang "your side of the bed"...he didnt. He doesn't like male voices (his own , that's it)...he loved a women's voice tone and preferred it....he upheld women to such a high degree even though he himself had an ain't ish mom. So him going by pill is not far fetched.

  • charallday

  • ATL White Guy

    It's like arguing about who is the best all-around basketball player. LeBron may be because he can shoot, rebound, etc, but Curry is the best shooter & playmaker. I agree with you Prince was the better musician and maybe all around artist. MJ was definitely a great showman and singer, but didn't have the musicianship (is that a word??) that Prince had. It's kinda like 1a and 1b.

  • LeBrick James

    I liked Prince, but I'm honestly surprised by some of the reactions I've seen out there... wailing, crying etc.

    I've never cried for any celebrity who passed away, not even MJ, and I was a huuge MJ fan. I dont really understand it, honestly, but I guess everyone grieves differently.

    I don't believe he committed suicide. If so, why would he call a doctor to intervene with his addiction?

  • A D N

    It's ok to feel a certain way about your Prince lol. I feel the same way maybe more about Michael Jackson. You can't tell me anything bad about him lol. I was crushed to learn he was taking Propofol (sp) to help him sleep. That was extreme anxiety and depression I pray to never experience. Fame and fortune can be a demon especially because those who have access to "yes" people are the most hurt and harmed. I'm unsure what to fully think about Prince's passing. The reported stories are all over the place...suicide...addiction...AIDS. But now that I think about it, the three sort of go together in a sense. If Prince was very concerned about his public image and very private about his life, his reaction to having AIDS would be one of suicidal thoughts. Gurl, I don't know lol. I'm going to leave this subject alone...lol.

  • nucynu25

    & Mj fought like hell to be done with Sony ...

  • SpideySense

    Not many scandals for Prince over the years. Everyone i listed were public figures whether they valued their privacy or not. Prince is dead so there are sure to be leaks here and there now. I'm not sure if I believe the story or not, but I don't think it should be dismissed because of the news outlet that broke the story, especially since they have proven to be reliable in the past.

  • the guest

    Thank you!

    This is just too much information. This is no one's business. His private darkest suffering last moments. I hate to think of anyone so alone and sad. I wish they would leave him be in peace. All he did was give all his heart to music. We had a literal genius musician and revolutionary black man in music on this earth. Few men in history can do what Prince did. Why can't he just be left to rest in peace. Just let his music speak for his memory.

  • SameoleJ

    What I am saying is there were already whispers about those other people and things before Nat'l Enq. broke the story.......which is not the case with Prince. Plenty of money could have been made off of dropping information about him, but it never was until now.

  • Benita Renee’

  • the guest

    Lets just come right out and say it. They were all murdered by apparent overdoses. So was Marilyn Monroe. Celebrities with too much information or who are worth more dead than alive have been killed throughout history.

    Lauryn's not so crazy after all to have turned her back on the industry and live off the grid and raise children. We can't imagine what she's witnessed or been through or possibly indulged and had the self discipline to save her life.

    Prince just got his catalog back four weeks ago. Two weeks after securing it he's dead. I would bet his whole catalog the label threatened to expose his illness and he couldn't bear the evil.

    The industry still pissed he called the industry slavery and renamed himself a symbol. That was some bold revolutionary ish.

    His catalog is 100% his own creativity, music, instrumentation, voice all of it his! And the white man felt entitled to whats his. The nerve. Pray for his family. They should not drive or eat without caution. And that's real talk and no conspiracy theory.

  • DHoward1913

    I could be wrong here but I am guessing that all that footage is going to show is a man taking pills; possibly a man in pain because of bad hips or a man with stomach issues. I would like to think that a man as private about his personal life as Prince would be smarter than "OD'ing" where it could be seen and shown to the masses.

    I don't believe that overdose crap anyway.

    If he was purposely seen taking pills... why are we calling it an "overdose" - it's suicide to me.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Yep. The same people he distrusted became executors to his estate and sold back the catalogue for a paltry sum. Do you realize what was in the catalogue? No one EVER on that family would have had to work again. Every decendent would be covered. I just can't believe it. I bet you a dollar to a doughnut Paul got his stuff back.

    So first the National Enquirer says Prince is "praying the AIDS away" although he had hip replacement surgery and was taking prescription pain meds which shows he went to doctors. Now although he was "praying the AIDS away" which shows he believed in God, he was taking the meds to kill himself. smh With all the medicines now days, Prince could have lived another 20 years with AIDS.

  • rayne215

    Well, its all but confirmed that Prince did indeed die from a overdose:

    Time- A Minneapolis attorney said Wednesday that Prince had arranged to meet with a California doctor who specializes in addiction treatment the day before he died.

    Attorney William Mauzy said the doctor, Howard Kornfeld, had never met or spoken to Prince before the singer’s representatives reached out to him on April 20. Mauzy, confirming details first reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, said Kornfeld wasn’t able to travel immediately to Minnesota, so arranged for his son Andrew to go instead.

    Mauzy also said he arranged for a Minnesota doctor to evaluate Prince, and that the doctor had cleared his schedule for the following morning. But Prince was found unresponsive that morning at his Paisley Park studio complex, and it was Andrew Kornfeld — who was among three people to find him — who dialed 911, the attorney said.

  • rayne215

    Damn, shame he died before treatment. I wish didnt leave him alone. It explains the lack of will, he wasnt prepared to die and was probably to stubborn to think he would die from the pills..

  • Linda Anderson

    lies, lies, lies. HE DID NOT DIE FROM AIDS

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I do like Crown Apple :thinking:

  • JV

    Even if he did die via overdose, that doesn't mean he committed suicide. He had an addiction; he would have needed professional help to stop in all likelihood. That he had AIDS, that he intentionally tried to kill himself-- all lies, until proven otherwise. He could have been given those pills for a number of conditions.

  • rayne215

    i agree, i dont think it was suicide nor AIDS. he had an addiction it seems like.

  • Crazy tee

    How can you go after the pusher? If your doctor prescribed the same meds and said " take one a day for 30 days" now there is a 30 count....if you took all 30 in one day and died then they will fault the doctor....I think everyone should be responsible for their own actions when it comes to what is good for there body and what may not be.....

  • kiddo1

    Life is truly short...I just had a co-worker/friend to die, she had a massive heart attack, she was not over weight, no known health problems, married for 15yrs with two lovely children..boy 11 and girl 16, we walked on our breaks every morning and talked about our kids future, she was a really good person, like all of us just trying to make it day by day, but anyway when I got the news I was shocked and sadden all at the same time, I'm just thankful I had the chance to know her..RIP my friend...Tell someone you love them you may not get a second chance!

    The sad part is if there's no will they're going to go back to Warner Brothers because he went back to them -> Warner Brothers. After all those years of fighting to get his master's he went back and now he's gone.

    I'm not into conspiracy theories either but I do believe people will do anything for money and the music industry it's still Corporate America. People on Wall Street and big business die every day mysteriously but it's always swept under the rug. But that fact is what's fueling the conspiracies. I'm really sick of the clone one!

  • SpideySense

    Hmm, not sure. Wouldn't be surprised though. Google can answer that. Those are pics i dont want to see.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Sorry to hear about your friend, Kiddo1. That's awful.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I thought I heard something about him having several doctors. Unfortunately, doctors have no way of knowing you having another physician and who's prescribing what (other than them). It's a sad outcome, be it OD, suicide, AIDS, etc. Whatever the cause of death, sad.

  • Tammy GILBERT

    yes you are right it"s not the poe poe it is the record producers they got plenty more to go.

  • Lovesexxee

    Hey, The Enquirer has proven to be credible in the past.
    Someone told me about this and my exact words were, "It's probably the National Enquire or The Star." And it's them. They're like, TMZ good. I truly hope this story is not true. I don't think he overdosed. I think he was killed. He knew it was coming, thus his statement days earlier.
    I was one of the fortunate few who was at that last show and heard him sing "Purple Rain." He didn't sing it at the 7p.m. show. I've been to many Prince concerts and he was an Artist first and foremost. He cancelled the concerts THE DAY OF the performances the week before. I said then I doubted he was sick. His moods are legendary, and he plays WHATEVER he feels AT THAT TIME. He was joking, singing, hitting EVERY NOTE (the flu??) and gave an incredible show. So, when I heard about his plane making sn emergency stop 30min from his destination, my antennae went up again. Then he gets home, throws one of his block parties where he told people to save their prayers. Hmm... Then he's gone. A man who stays awake all night. A man who allegedly overdosed a week before. So, he's left ALONE - no housekeepers, no cook, no staff, no friends?? In a place that size?? And really, who would be worried about him at 9:30a.m.?? If they were so worried, they'd have been there with him.
    So, we have the flu, overdosed on a drug habit - twice - and now AIDS. In an elevator.
    COME ON!!
    He was pissing off a lot of people the last few years. He was dropping clues for any enlightened person to see. He knew what was coming. Too many coincidences aren't a coincidence.
    We'll never know the whole truth.
    He left us with so much love.
    He was the ULTIMATE. An ORIGINAL.
    His name was Prince.
    And he was funky.
    He will be loved and will live on forever.
    We were blessed to have had him.

    They killed Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, Whitney and...... Worth more dead than alive always spells trouble in this corporate money driven society.

  • stanhope

    Be pissed at the dirty bytch that took or authorized the picture....Pat, you reading this?

  • Guess Who

    I don't get it. He overdosed on pain meds...had AIDS but wouldn' take meds to treat AIDS? Some blog mentioned he was a Jehovah's Witness and he didn't seek treatment...but opted to manage the pain with meds....okay....

  • Sincerity7

    Well, we need the video link Auntie!

  • Bonnie J. Williams

    Yes, this is tragic, and a celebrity we have easy access to information for is what is going on. All of us, read, think. And is it too much information? Well, this is the thing....people who overuse, mis-use prescription and/or street drugs or alcohol become extremely clever at hiding it...and manipulating their lives extensively. We may know someone who is doing this in our own circle of family or friends; no one can escape that fact or issue. In this case, we can discern a little bit more of what we could do with a loved one, acquaintance to respond accordingly to what we may perceive as a drug problem, so we don't watch them lose their lives. What a person does in a matter of days and seconds for someone on the brink can save their lives; and prevent the horrific tragedy of a person's life snuffed out before their time. Sincerely, my brother blew his brains out the day after a birthday party in a corner of his basement after he was home alone. May 14, 2001. RIP Len.

    I am so tired of the stories about Prince, all I know, he was a wonderful entertainer, sexy, humble, and handsome. His business intellect was amazing. Although he was a very private man, we don't know what he was going through. But, he will never be forgotten a true humanitarian. All the negativity about his demise, should only be the concern of his family.,

  • R Pope

    It's all a lie

  • R Pope

  • Lovesexxee

    They are actually spot on most of the time. Face it: TMZ and The National Enquirer get info from well connected people. The Enquirer does extensively and accurate information since the 60's or 70's (can't remember for sure) the majority of the info is true.
    I was at his VERY last show in Atlanta and he sang Purple Rain at the 10PM show, but not the 7pm one the same evening.
    Prince knew he was going to be killed, he didn't have AIDS. He was a blood sacrifice for that old Hag in England, Queen Elizabeth. He was talking too much and he denounced the Illuminati Satanic Entertainment industry. Perid. He didn't care about the money, he'd gained ownership of his master catalogue which was the first time in History an artist of his caliber and fought so long for it. He opened the door for all artists to have the right to do the same. Okay, "They" weren't too happy about that but let it go. Then he started enlightening others to what is really going on in this world. So he sold his soul to Satin, got it back (ppl get killed for that) along with his masters, then exposing the illuminati. He dies in his elevator. RIGHT!! People WAKE UP!!
