Prince drug dealer: A mystery D tells of having acted as Prince’s illegitimate drug dealer who fed him a cache of opiates over the course of 25 years.
A report has told of Prince retaining a drug dealer who fed the musician’s ‘secret drug addiction’ with a cache of opiates, including Dilaudid and Fentanyl.
In an exclusive with the dailymail, an individual identified only as Doctor D, a self confessed drug dealer to Prince, tells of supplying Prince with the highly addictive opiates for over 25 years, between 1984 and 2008, telling how the musician spent up to $40 000 a time on six month supplies of Dilaudid pills and Fentanyl patches, both highly addictive opiate pain killers.
Doctor D, a self confessed dealer to the stars, according to the tabloid, told of Prince being ‘majorly addicted’ suffering ‘crippling’ stage fright and not being able to perform without his cache of drugs.
So bad was the musician’s spiraling addiction, along with a phobia of doctors, Prince, reveals the mystery physician, resorted to getting his fix clandestinely.
According to the unnamed physician, which the tabloid never explains how they came across suggests that a doctor could have unwittingly contributed to Prince’s death by prescribing the strong pain medication which Prince would tell was for pain associated for his hip condition.
Of question, is how many doctors was the musician going through, and what was he not disclosing to those physicians? And how each new prescription risked sending the musician past the point of no return.
Offers the mystery Doctor D who originates who the reader is told originates from Los Angeles but who know takes stock at Coachella: ‘I first met Prince in 1984 while he was filming the movie Purple Rain and he was already majorly addicted to opiates – I didn’t hook him on drugs he was already a really heavy user.
‘In the beginning he would buy speed as well as Dilaudid.
‘I would sell him black beauties which were a black pill and cross tops which were also speed pills.
‘He would use that as a counter balance to get back up again from taking opiates.
‘That lasted for a couple of years then he would just buy Dilaudid, which is a heroin based opiate. It is highly addictive.
‘As far as I knew he never took heroin – as that would leave you out of it for days whereas Dilaudid gives you an energy buzz as well as making you feel relaxed – so he preferred it.
‘He needed the drugs because he was so nervous – he could be nervous in a room with just five people in it.
‘He was scared to go out in public, he was scared to talk to people and didn’t like to go on stage – he had the worst case of stage fright I’d ever seen.
‘A lot of performers rely on drugs to make them feel confident on stage but he was by far the worse.
‘Plus he was always paranoid about doctors so he wouldn’t ask them for help – he had a phobia of them.
The revelation comes as Prince was observed making no less than 4 visits to a local Walgreens Pharmacy to pick up what many now believe to be his fix of Percocet, the opiate based pain killer which the musician overdosed on six days prior to his death.
Offers Doctor D who hypothesizes by the time of Prince’s death being on a molotov of prescription drugs, courtesy of unwitting doctors who may not have known that Prince was taking other combinations:
‘But doctors would have freaked out if they knew the extent of Prince’s drug problem and wouldn’t know what to do.
‘He self medicated for years and was fine – so it wouldn’t have been the opiates that killed him but the Tylenol.
‘So perversely the doctors who thought they were helping him may have hurt him by prescribing Percocet.
‘Also if they did have to give him a save shot when he overdosed like everybody is saying – that removes all traces of drugs from your system so he would have started to go into withdrawal and would have had to take a lot of drugs to feel okay again – which also could have killed him.
‘You can’t just stop taking these drugs when you have taken them for so long.
‘But without knowing his drug history doctors wouldn’t have known that.
‘It explains why he was spotted looking nervous and pacing around at the pharmacy in the week before his death.’
According to Doctor D, the drugs also served to change the musician’s personality.
Offers the physician: ‘He didn’t have much of a personality off the stage to be honest. Like a lot of these stars he needed the drugs to get the personality.
‘He’d go from boring, mellow, nothing special and suddenly be transformed into this amazing performer once he had the drugs.’
Since last meeting with Prince in 2008, after the musician rarely returning to California, Doctor D tells of never having seen the musician ever again, nor whether he has other clients whom he illicitly supplies narcotics to and how prevalent the industry of rogue doctors going underground, acting in essence as drug dealers.
Explains the mystery Doctor D which the tabloid makes no effort to explain how they come to believe the legitimacy of the physician’s claims: ‘I never heard from him after that – I don’t think he came back to the area much.
‘He was such a heavy drug user he must have got another drug dealer up in Minnesota.’
