Three Indiana pharmacists have been reprimanded for trying to access Prince's medical records within days of the superstar's death last year.

The State Board of Pharmacy issued reprimands and imposed penalties after the Indiana's attorney general's office determined the three had separately tried to access Prince's medical records.
