Tom Petty's official cause of death has been revealed!
According to the medical examiner, Petty passed away from an accidental drug overdose after taking a variety of medications.
Petty’s family posted a statement, saying: “Unfortunately, Tom’s body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems, and most significantly a fractured hip. Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury. 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.”
