Prince was found dead in an elevator in Paisley Park on April 21. He was 57.

Initial reports said that Prince, real name Prince Nelson, has been wide awake for several days before he was found dead in the lift despite having sleep-inducing painkillers, Mirror UK said in a report.

“I was with him just last weekend,” Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson told. “He worked 154 hours straight. He was a good brother-in-law.”

Also according to The Daily Mail, Prince’s drug addiction has resulted to spending whopping $40,000 for a six-month supply of Dilaudid pills and Fentanyl patches, which he used as painkillers. A source told that he has been doing this for 25 years now.

The musician rose to fame for his first album “For You” in 1978 under Warner Bros. His recent albums were “Love Sexy,” “Hit N Run Phase 1,” and “Hit N Run Phase 2.”
