Sheila E. Sets Record Straight on Prince’s Alleged Drug Use and His Memorial

It was an emotional weekend for family and friends of Prince as they gathered to say good-bye to the music legend, who passed away unexpectedly on Thursday at the age of 57.

On Sunday, “Extra” spoke with his longtime friend Sheila E., who rushed to his Paisley Park compound shortly after the news of his death broke. Sheila told “Extra” of Prince's memorial service held Saturday after his cremation, “The service was basically family and a few friends. It was very closed... That was hard because there are so many of us that were a part of his life. We’re gonna probably have something later on as well for everyone else. It will be in stages, because there is a lot to process, but for the family we needed to do this for closure.” Sheila also addressed rumors of Prince's illness and the reported drug overdose on prescription medication.
