Whitney Houston Dead at 48

Whitney Houston has passed away at the age of 48, sources confirm to JustJared.com.

The singer passed away on Saturday (February 11). She was expected to show up at a studio for a photo shoot in the afternoon and to attend Clive Davis‘ Annual Grammy Party in the evening, JustJared.com can exclusively reveal.

Whitney was the first female artist to ever debut at number one on the Billboard charts and she is considered one of the world’s best-selling female artists with over 200 million albums sold worldwide. After struggling with addiction, Whitney returned to the music scene in 2009 with her album I Look to You.

Later this year, Whitney‘s new film Sparkle will be released into theaters. Check out a brand new still from the film that was released last week.

Whitney is survived by her daughter Bobbi Kristina, whom she had with ex-husband Bobby Brown.

    What a tragedy.
    She was so talented and beautiful and her daughter is so young to lose a mother.
    It’s a shame she fell into a pattern of addiction.
    I really hoped she would overcome it.
    My heart and prayers go out to her family and young daughter.
    RIP, Whitney.

    When will folks both rich or poor learn that drugs are nothing but a death sentence. Sometimes fame kills. I feel very fortunate to have survived all that crap, I only wish more would ask for help. Very sad day on the evening before the Grammy’s. RIP Whitney. Hope it was worth leaving your daughter alone.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and guess this was from her addictions. Terribly sad. To all those people who use “recreational” drugs, I hope you learn something from these tragic deaths
