Prince's personal chef says the star was battling waves of sore throats and frequent upset stomachs in his final months. Ray Roberts, who cooked for Prince for almost three years, tells the AP the musician had recently been asking for items like smoothies and freshly squeezed juices that were easier to digest. He says he felt Prince "wasn't himself" in the months before he was found dead on April 21. But Roberts says Prince showed no signs of weakness and "not even a hint" that he was taking drugs. A law enforcement official told the AP investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose. (A source says Prince's secret vault has been drilled open.)
