He claims Prince was hooked on drugs for 25 years.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Online, the performer’s long-time dealer – who asked to be named only as Doctor D – revealed the singer would spend up to $40,000 a time on six-month supplies of Dilaudid pills and Fentanyl patches – both highly addictive opioid pain killers…

His death came just days after sources claimed he overdosed on the opiate Percocet.

Doctor D said the musician,¬†who he described as ‘majorly addicted’,¬†regularly bought drugs from him between 1984 and 2008.

The dealer, often to the stars, said Prince suffered crippling stage fright and could not get on stage and perform without the drugs – but had a phobia of doctors so could not obtain a prescription legally.

Tragically, Doctor D suggests it could have been a physician that unknowingly contributed to Prince’s death – by prescribing strong pain killers to the singer for his hip condition without knowing the extent of his secret opiate addiction.
