The shocking news has surfaced that pop icon Prince, was diagnosed with full blown AIDS six weeks before he died and that although he was prepared for death, he believed that God would heal him.
A US magazine – The Enquirer – is quoting sources as saying that music pioneer Prince learned he had the full-blown version of the HIV disease six weeks before his death, however, other sources claim that the Jehovah’s Witness star, knew six months ago.
A source, whose identity the Enquirer did not reveal, said: “Doctors told Prince his blood count was unusually low and that his body temperature had dropped dangerously below the normal 98.6 degrees to 94 degrees.
“He was totally iron-deficient, very weak and often disoriented. He rarely ate and when he did, it all came right back up.
‘”His face was yellowish, the skin on his neck was hanging off and the tips of fingers were a brownish-yellow,” the supermarket tabloid stated in its report.
Prince, whose love and sex life has been well documented and over the top, reportedly raised awareness of Aids in a 1998 campaign. It is now being reported that he contracted HIV in the mid 90’s.
He was given a life-saving injection on his private plane days before his death and was spotted heading into a chemist several times a week for drugs. According to a report on Yahoo, staff at the Walgreens Pharmacy said the pills he had been buying were used to treat HIV patients.
The deadly infection, normally transferred through sex or sharing needles, breaks down a victim’s immune system. Prince was known as much for his wild sex life as he was known for his incredible music.
According to one report, women claimed he had sex dungeons built in his home and he asked lovers to call him the “Messiah” during all-night orgies.
The Purple Rain singer, 57, was found dead in a lift at his home in Minneapolis last Thursday.
His remains were cremated following the autopsy.
