Prince’s cause of death has not yet been revealed, but the legendary musician may have been battling drug addiction just days before, according to TMZ.

TMZ reported that after the singer’s private plane made an emergency landing last Friday in Moline, Illinois, he was rushed to a hospital and given a “safe shot” by doctors.

According to the site, the treatment is frequently used to mitigate the effects of opiates.

The singer’s team reportedly asked for a private room, but when the request was denied, Prince left the hospital after three hours, rather than the recommended 24.

A representative for UnityPoint Moline, where the singer was reportedly admitted, said they did not register any patients under the name Prince or Prince Rogers Nelson.

Prince’s plane made an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois, early Friday, as the singer was en route home in Minnesota from a concert in Atlanta.

Prince was reported to have been experiencing flu symptoms, which worsened during the flight.
