Scoop: Warrant reveals doctor prescribed Prince drugs just before he died

The latest in the investigation of Prince’s death: A search warrant reveals that Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg wrote the pop star prescriptions on April 7 and April 20, the day before his death, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

The warrant was filed in Hennepin County, Minn. and carried out at North Memorial Medical Center in suburb of Robbinsdale.

TMZ reports that the doctor, who was affiliated with the center, was present at Paisley Park the day before the singer died, apparently dropping off results of tests he ran on the musician.

Meanwhile, the doctor seems to have disappeared. Lesa Bader, a spokeswoman for the medical center, said Schulenberg was a primary care physician at its Minnetonka clinic, but that he no longer works there.

No one answered the door at his home on Tuesday and a phone message left for him wasn’t immediately returned.

In other Prince news, authorities revisited Paisley Park on Tuesday, Carver County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud told the AP, in an instance of “being thorough.”

There’s even more: a 39-year-old Missouri man, Carlin Q. Williams, came forward, claiming to be Prince’s biological son.

TMZ reports that the man filed legal documents saying that his mother, Marsha Henson, met Prince in the lobby of the Crown Center Hotel in Kansas City in July 1976, drank wine with him, checked into a room and had unprotected sex.

Carlin, who is in federal prison for gun possession, wants to test Prince’s DNA samples against his.


NICK JONAS TALKS SEX

Nick Jonas, on the cover of the upcoming issue of Out magazine, is getting used to people caring about his love life.

In an interview promoting his new album “Complicated,” he said, “The fact that people were intrigued by a 14-or-15-year-old’s relationships was strange to me,” he says. “Now I think it makes a bit more sense. I think it’s kind of amusing, people’s interests.”

But even so, “it definitely sucks,” he adds.

As for the handful of critics who accuse him of “gay baiting,” or playing to the LGBT community for publicity purposes, he says. “I think it’s really quite sad.”
