Musician Tom Petty arrives for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, September 6, 2012. The L.A. County Coroner's office told TMZ that his organs failed as a result of "mixed drug toxicity".

The lead singer of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers suffered cardiac arrest in his home on October 3, and was taken via ambulance to a UCLA Medical Center, where he could not be revived and was pronounced dead.

Tom's autopsy report shows the singer was on several pain meds, including Fentanyl patches, oxycodone (Oxycontin), temazepam (Restoril), alprazolam (Xanax), citalopram (Celexa), acetyl fentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl.

Fentanyl is roughly 35 times stronger than heroin and is available with a prescription.

The statement goes on to say Petty insisted on pleasing his fans despite medical complications from emphysema, knee problems and a fractured hip. Petty continued to tour despite these limitations, they said.

The statement continued: "On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication".

The family also used the annoucement as an opportunity to talk about the ongoing opioid crisis.

In 2016, opioid-related overdoses increased by 28%, killing 42,249 people.

Petty's family said they hoped the revelation would add to the national discussion on opioid abuse.

Music legend Prince, who was also reported to have suffered from hip pain, died a year ago from a fentanyl overdose and may have unwittingly taken the drug.

Petty was found unconscious inside his Malibu home.
