I have been trying to avoid even reading on what had happened to Whitney because I knew I would be compelled to blog about it. This is a very touchy subject for me, because I have witnessed my LOVED ONES struggle with drug abuse. In no way shape or form is it funny and no one should crack jokes at the expense of someone’s death. For all those PEOPLE that are tweeting or posting such mean and unnecessary statements, you should be ashamed. She was a mother, a daughter, a friend, and most importantly a CHILD OF GOD. We are NO ONE to judge her for her actions!!!
My heart goes out to her daughter, all of her loved ones, and to her fans that will forever REMEMBER WHITNEY AT HER GREATEST. I am not going to post any pictures of her days before her death. I think they are just so sad to look at and disrespectful. We all know that she was suffering from a drug and alcohol problem so there is no need to dwell on it, all we can do is REMEMBER the GREAT SINGER that she was & how there will NEVER be another WHITNEY!!!
Whitney your music will forever live on, I pray that you made amends with yourself and anyone that you may have hurt, in the course of your alcohol and drug abuse. I pray that your daughter, Bobbi, makes it out okay and that she is stronger now then she was yesterday.
LA Times reports — Whitney Houston was found underwater in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel where she was pronounced dead, police said Monday.
“She was underwater and apparently unconscious,” the Beverly Hills Police Department said in a statement, adding that authorities “cannot speculate on what may have caused or contributed to her death.
Several prescription drugs were found in Houston’s hotel room, but Los Angeles County coroner’s officials said it’s too soon to say whether the medications played any role in the singer’s death. Authorities have said that they are trying to determine whether she drowned and that determining a cause of death could take weeks.
Investigators have collected several bottles of prescription substances from Houston’s suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, law enforcement sources told The Times.
Officials are talking to the pop star’s family and friends to learn how she spent her final few hours, according to the law enforcement sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
After Houston was found Saturday afternoon in the bathtub, Beverly Hills Fire Department paramedics performed CPR on Houston for about 20 minutes before declaring her dead, officials said.
People who were briefed on the probe Sunday said drowning was one of several scenarios that investigators are exploring. The sources stressed that investigators still have many unanswered questions.
One person with knowledge of the case said a natural cause of death has not been ruled out.
Officials hope toxicology tests will yield more clues, coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter said Sunday.
“We won’t make that final determination until all the tests are in.” Winter said.
Beverly Hills police have put a security hold on the case, keeping further details from being released.
Houston struggled with drug and alcohol problems for years, and last May her spokeswoman said the singer was going back into rehab.
She was in Beverly Hills for music industry titan Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammys party Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton. During the preceding days, she made several public appearances. At times, she was said to have been acting strangely, skipping around a ballroom and doing handstands near the hotel pool. Houston reportedly greeted people with a warm smile but at times appeared disheveled in mismatched clothes and with her hair dripping wet.
On Thursday, she dropped by the rehearsals for the pre-Grammys party. A Grammy staffer said that as reporters interviewed Davis and singers Brandy and Monica, Houston was dancing just off camera to make them laugh. Grammy personnel expressed concern that she’d be caught on camera and that reporters would write about her behavior.
On Sunday morning, a bleary-eyed Ray J was briefly inside the lobby of the Beverly Hilton with three companions. The music star, who reportedly had been dating Houston off and on, had his hood up and was being consoled.
“Whitney dead,” he repeated multiple times, as one friend grabbed him by the shoulders. “Whitney dead. We all gotta live with that.”
A little later, he left the hotel in the passenger seat of a red Ferrari.
Houston’s teenage daughter was taken by paramedics from the Beverly Hilton to a nearby hospital Sunday morning. She has since been released.
