Report: Prince treated for drug overdose just days before his death

Prince was treated for a drug overdose 6 days before his death, multiple sources tell TMZ.

Last Friday, Prince's private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois just hours after he performed in Atlanta. At the time, his reps said he was battling the flu, which was something TMZ questioned because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing.

Multiple sources in Moline now tell TMZ that Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a "save shot," typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.

The sources further tell TMZ that doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn't possible, they decided to leave.
