American pop artist Prince died from a self-administered overdose of a prescription painkiller.

The US Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office said the singer died of an accidental overdose of one of the strongest opiate drugs on the market: fentanyl.

The probe into Prince’s death had focused on painkillers after prescription opioid medication was found close to where he died .. and after reports he had been struggling with an addiction.

The songwriter was found dead in his home in the US state of Minneapolis in last April.
