Powerful pills found at the mansion of pop star Prince were mislabelled, investigators have said.

Several pills recovered from the Purple Rain singer’s mansion were counterfeit drugs which contained the opioid fentanyl, the drug which killed him, according to officials.

Many of the pills are said to have been found inside vitamin and aspirin bottles and tucked inside a suitcase and duffel bags in his dressing room.

Prince passed away in April and post-mortem tests later revealed he had died from fentanyl, a powerful painkiller.

The star is not thought to have had prescriptions for any controlled substances in the state of Minnesota in the 12 months before he died at the age of 57.

Authorities are still investigating how Prince obtained the drugs.
