In the two weeks since Prince’s death reports have flooded in about the artist’s offstage lifestyle, pain medications he was on and 911 calls from his estate. Regarding the latter, Minnesota authorities have just released a call log that indicates 46 emergency calls were placed from Paisley Park since 2011, ranging from the trivial to the sobering.
In 2011 an unidentified woman reportedly called to express concern for the Purple Rain star’s “cocaine use.” Another call, made in the days after his death, suggested the existence of a living child — an unidentified woman who called said her 17-year-old son with Prince wanted to attend the funeral.
Other calls were for police to provide assistance for incidents, including a a tripped fire alarm and a trespasser.
It could be weeks before autopsy results determine the cause of Prince’s death. However, the call log paints a picture of Paisley Park in a somewhat regular state of emergency.
