The New York Post reports that Shields asked his personal assistant to give him Narcan, an anti-opioid treatment, around 9:00 AM local time because he suspected he was overdosing on prescription painkillers. But before his assistant was able to administer the drug effectively, Shields lost consciousness.
First responders say they got a call for help just after 9:00 AM local time but they were unable to get to him before it was too late.
An autospy has been ordered but sources close to the situation are telling TMZ they believe he overdosed on oxycodone, a highly addictive narcotic prescribed for severe pain.
Bethenny Frankel, one of the stars of Bravo’s “The Real Housewife Of New York City” and Shields began dating in 2016. Earlier this year, Shields told Steve Harvey that their relationship was difficult and “a bit like business.”
