Prince Suicide Note

(In Touch)

Prince did NOT leave a suicide note prior to his tragic death in April, despite a false tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to In Touch, Prince intentionally overdosed on opioids before two staffers discovered the singer’s body in the elevator of his Paisley Park estate, despite the official autopsy results ruling his death an accident. The magazine’s questionable source claims that an unidentified person found a suicide note in one of his notebooks, but kept it hidden from the authorities because it’s “what the deeply private star would have wanted.”

This supposed “close friend” of the late musician says, “It was chilling and read simply: ‘Need something to make the pain stop, even if it means ending everything somehow. It’s time to go, I didn’t mean to leave soon. I didn’t meant to leave now. Love, Love, Love.'” The tabloid’s dubious insider adds, “He knew he would finally do himself in with a deadly dose of opiates.”

The outlet’s “source” further alleges that Prince had a death wish for quite some time, and was also “sick and tired of living” and contemplated suicide endlessly. “It was a heartbreaking final bow,” adds the magazine’s seemingly phony insider. “As far as I’m concerned, Prince didn’t die of an accidental overdose.”

But as far as the truth is concerned, Prince’s death wasn’t at all intentional. The singer tragically succumbed to a powerful addiction to painkillers. He didn’t purposely take his life, nor did he leave any kind of suicide note. Gossip Cop checked in with a reliable source close to the late pop star, who exclusively assures us that the tabloid’s story is simply “not true.”

In fact, In Touch can’t seem to get its concocted tales straight. Gossip Cop recently busted the tabloid for falsely alleging in another cover story that Prince was “murdered.” However, the magazine’s headline was shamefully deceptive, since the actual story suggested that his death was merely caused by negligent doctors. The publication’s latest supposed cause of Prince’s untimely death is similarly fabricated.

A skeptic might conclude that the outlet preys on the untimely deaths of stars. As Gossip Cop reported shortly after Robin Williams’ death in 2014, In Touch also magically uncovered a suicide note that no other reliable or legitimate outlet found. The tabloid claimed back then that Williams left a series of messages that similarly stated, “The pain is too much.” As Gossip Cop noted, that story was a complete lie. Sadly, the magazine continues to publish falsehoods to deceive its readers.
