Arsenio Hall is Being Accused of Being Prince’s Drug Pusher


The wounds from Prince’s death haven’t even begun to heal, as the world copes with the loss of an icon. The news that his death was likely drug related was even more tragic, but now their’s accusations that another popular Black celebrity could hold some responsibility in Prince’s passing.

TMZ reports that Sinedad O’Connor, a British singer whose biggest hit, “Nothing Compares 2 U,” was written by Prince has come forward to attack actor and former talk show host, Arsenio Hall.

O’Connor claims that Hall is to blame for supplying Prince with drugs.

TMZ quotes her as claiming, “Two words for the DEA investigating where (sic) prince got his drugs over the decades … Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch).”

It seems relevant to point out that Arsenio Hall and Prince were well known as being close friends along with Eddie Murphy, but aside from writing the hit for O’Connor, she doesn’t have any personal relationship with the late star.

As for Hall? Well a representative for him called O’Connor’s claims “absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd.”

So did Prince pick up a drug habit courtesy of Arsenio Hall? It doesn’t seem likely, but who knows.

One thing we know for sure, is that we really miss Prince.
