Prince Was Due To Meet Addiction Specialist

Pop star Prince asked to meet an addiction specialist the day before he died, a lawyer has said.

Representatives of the 57-year-old musician had contacted Dr Howard Kornfeld the day before he was found unresponsive in a lift, but as he was not immediately available, he sent his son instead.

Andrew Kornfeld, who is not a doctor, was one of three people who found Prince's body after he showed up at his Minneapolis-area Paisley Park estate.

Dr Kornfeld's lawyer, William Mauzy, said neither his client nor his client's son had met or spoke to Prince in person.

Mr Mauzy said it was Andrew Kornfeld who called 911, and confirmed that he was carrying a small amount of bruprenorphine - a drug which can be used to give pain relief to drug addicts who are in pain - although he did not intend to give this to Prince.

The lawyer said Dr Kornfeld also called a doctor colleague in Minnesota to see if he could check on Prince and that doctor cleared his schedule on the morning the pop star was found dead.

That doctor remains unidentified.

Mr Mauzy spoke out on behalf of California-based Dr Kornfeld after a report was published that claimed Prince had arranged to meet a doctor to kick an addiction to painkillers shortly before his death.

A police official close to the investigation has told the Associated Press news agency that investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose.

On Tuesday, police released call records from 2011 that suggested Prince was unable to control a cocaine habit.
