But the doctor admitted he put the prescription under the name of bodyguard Kirk Johnson "for Prince's privacy", according to the affidavit.

Prince died on April 21, 2016, at age 57.

Autopsy results released in June show Prince died of a fentanyl overdose.

New details regarding Prince's overdose death have been revealed almost one year after the singer was found in an elevator at Paisley Park in Minneapolis.

Dr. Michael Schulenberg said he prescribed Prince - whose April 21, 2016 death was ruled as an opioid overdose - Oxycodone under his bodyguard Kirk Johnson's name in order to preserve his privacy, according to multiple search warrants executed past year.

The late Prince was reportedly prescribed opioids under a false name by his doctor.

CNN's attempts to reach Johnson on Monday were not immediately successful. Oxycodone, the generic name for the active ingredient in OxyContin, was not listed as a cause of Prince's death. A pamphlet on getting getting over drug abuse was also found at the house.

Search warrants and other documents related to criminal cases are normally public record, but authorities had requested all documents related to the Prince death investigation be sealed as the probe proceeded.

The B12 detail was included in a detective's affidavit seeking one of the search warrants.

Investigators haven't interviewed either Johnson or Schulenberg since the hours after Prince died, an official with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing. Authorities later said he died of an overdose of fentanyl, a powerful synthetic drug. Documents unsealed Monday don't say how Prince got the fentanyl that killed him, and Tamburino says finding the answer to that will be the target for investigators.

News reports that unspecified controlled substances were also found next to handwritten "U Got the Look" lyrics in a suitcase bearing the name "Peter Bravestrong", an often-used Prince alias.

Prince did not have a cellphone, and authorities searched multiple email accounts that belonged to him, as they tried to determine who he was communicating with and where he got the drugs that killed him, according to the search warrants.
