Whitney Died Of Prescription Overdose; The Singer Did Not Drown!


Various media outlets have reported that pop icon Whitney Houston drowned in the bathtub of her hotel suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel after mixing a deadly cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol. Houston is seen leaving her doctor’s office on Tuesday (Feb. 7) in the photo below.

According to gossip website TMZ.com, Houston, 48, was found unresponsive in the bathtub. Her stylist, hairdresser and two bodyguards were among the people in the room at the time. The entourage reportedly grew concerned when Houston didn’t emerge from the bathroom after an hour.

The hairdresser, a female, entered the bathroom and screamed when she saw Houston’s face under the water. A bodyguard ran in and pulled Houston’s lifeless body out of the tub. The source described Houston’s body position as “legs up” as if she slid down the back of the tub under the water.

Her body was reportedly “very cold” when she was pulled out of the tub. Paramedics were called to the room but they were unable to resuscitate the singer. She was pronounced dead at 6:55PM EST.

TMZ.com reports that bottles of prescription anti-anxiety drugs Lorazepam (Ativan), Valium, Xanax and a sleeping medication were found in the hotel room. It is believed that Houston had an adverse effect to the prescription drugs that were mixed with the alcohol already in her system after bingeing on alcohol for two nights in a row.

Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 19, reportedly got into a screaming match with hotel security who barred her from Houston’s room. Bobbi and Houston’s cousin, singer Dionne Warwick, were eventually allowed into the room to see the body.

While Houston’s body lay in her hotel suite, Davis and other celebrities partied in the hotel’s ballroom downstairs. Many fans and critics have expressed anger at Davis for not canceling the party.

    • Ionna: Celebrity or not, she lost her mother. This has to be a horrific moment for Bobbi K. She was the first person I thought about when this was announced.

      Praying for her, and certainly for Whitney’s mother.

    • I’m sorry but Whitney Houston was a grown woman. How can Ray J drag her to parties? It was Grammy’s week….a week that she lived for so clearly she would have been at parties anyway. So, now I guess it’s all Ray J’s fault and Bobby Brown too for “introducing her to drug”. GTFOH. Let the woman rest in peace and stop trying to drag everyone else into it. TMZ said that she fell asleep bc of the sedation effect of the pills. I didn’t know that qualified as an adverse reaction or an overdose.

      RIP Whitney!! You are a true legend!!

    It is disgusting that they continued to have this party in the very place that this woman died’ and still laid. Money ain’t sh** when it comes to people you say are your friends/family. They could have gathered in her memory but to party & cheese for the cameras is pathetic.

I hope Bobbie stopped and dropped his performance last night, but after I thought about it he got about 10 other kids he has to support.

      I’m sure the mood inside was a bit somber.

After all that money she made him his party was more important.

      Maybe he did, and maybe he didn’t. What is very apparent is how quickly she went from the poised and regal superstar she was known as, to the irratic and dishelveled icon she became once she got with him.

      The most TRAGIC thing to me; however, is how he whored her around for his reality show. The woman was tragically doped up and done for, but he wanted the “show” to go on, and to make money from it.

      He knew nobody was going to watch a reality show with just him by himself.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      I don’t agree. I’ve heard some things about her before him. Even Johnny mentioned something about that on their VH1 behind the music about how everyone thought she was this American Princess in the public eye, but for the people who knew her personally, that hood Newark side was out. It’s just the internet and TMZ wasn’t around back then to be all up in your business and she kept hers low key, whereas Bobby was out there with his.

      And as far as that reality show, I thought it was just the opposite. It was her that was clingin to him and was always trying to be around. I remember he tried to get a break and take an all male camping trip, and she raided that. I think they were two of a kind, the only difference was how they was marketed. He was marketed as a bad boy, and she as a good girl.

        “ALL OF THE NEWS REPORTS” There’s your key phrase. That’s just what they decide to report. You think they are out there waiting to report the good that’s going on.

        To me, that show only proved how normal they are as a family. It showed to me that Bobby wasn’t as bad as we all thought he was, that he was a loving father who loves his kids and his family to death and wants to provide for them, but he has his issues in life that interferes every now and then. They are no different than the rest of us, their issues are just televised.

      People who love you show concern for you. That’s all I’m saying. You expect certain sounds to emanate from a bathroom when someone’s in there (water splashing, toilet flushing, etc). If those sounds are absent for a period of time, that would cause me to be concerned. But we already know that Whitney had no friends, just a bunch of leaches sucking off of her.

She said it best, she was her worst enemy. Anybody that watched Being Bobby Brown saw what kind of destructive life she was leading.

    Also, please stop blaming BB for her downward spiral, they were both addicts and they fed off of each other. AGain its sad that she couldnt live for her daughter and be there for her but addicts only think about themselves and their next fix.
