A total of 10 substances, including opioids, THC (marijuana), antidepressants and benzodiazepines, showed up in toxicology tests.

He had earlier asked for help after suffering chest pains before his death.

Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell and his wife Etsy have since revealed they were in touch with the sticksman via audio message and shared a heartfelt exchange.

According to Brazil’s Globo 1, Taylor said: “Take care of each other. And I’ll take care of myself. And I’ll see you in São Paulo. I love, love, love you. Sleep well.”

The Motley Crue drummer revealed via social media that they chatted hours before.

The 59-year-old rocker wrote on Instagram: “Right now typing words has never been so difficult. F**********!!!! ..this hits so f***** hard!

“Dude I just talked with you a few hours ago from your hotel room in Columbia before your concert. I wish this was some s***** dream or bad prank that we would both laugh about. But it’s not! You KNOW how I feel about you and how much I love you and we both know there’s no head to type it all out on social media for others to read.

“I love you Taylor.

“Rest In Beats

“Tommy (sic)”

Miley had been communicating with Taylor as she battled altitude sickness and after the emergency landing of her private jet, which got struck by lightning on the way to Lollapalooza Brazil, in Paraguay.

The ‘Midnight Sky’ hitmaker dedicated her performance at the festival to her friend Taylor.

She tweeted before performing on Saturday. “Tonights show is in honor of my friend Taylor Hawkins.

The most bad ass dude I know who would want me to shine and sing LOUD for the love of rock n roll! I’ve got this with a little help from my friend TH above and all of you. Let’s do it. (sic)”
