Authorities and emergency responders were called to Prince's suburban Minneapolis home over the last five years for everything from mundane reports of tripped fire alarms to more serious medical calls.

Minnesota authorities on Tuesday (May 3) released a log of 46 calls for service from Prince's Paisley Park complex.

In one 2011 call, a woman in Germany claimed Prince told her a year earlier that he had an uncontrollable cocaine habit. Authorities didn't follow up because the information was old and the woman didn't say Prince was in immediate danger.

The woman's identifying information was redacted. It's not clear whether she actually knew Prince.

A message seeking comment from Prince's representative wasn't immediately returned. Several people who knew Prince have said they never saw him use drugs.

Prince died April 21.
