Purple Rain singer, Prince, was diagnosed with HIV back in mid-90s, but that developed into AIDS six months ago, the National Enquirer reports.

A source said the singer, who is a Jehovah's Witness, refused treatment because his believe was that prayer could cure him.

The claim comes on the back of information from police sources that the artiste had prescription painkillers in his possession when he died.

“Doctors told Prince his blood count was unusually low and that his body temperature had dropped dangerously below the normal 98.6 degrees to 94 degrees. He was totally iron-deficient, very weak and often disoriented. He rarely ate and when he did, it all came right back up. His face was yellowish, the skin on his neck was hanging off and the tips of fingers were a brownish-yellow,” a source told the Enquirer.

The singer, whose real name Prince Rogers Nelson, had to undergo a medical procedure on April 15. play
