Whitney Houston's Death: New Details Revealed

New details have been revealed in the death of singer Whitney Houston, who passed away at the age of 48 on Saturday (February 11).

The singer was found unresponsive in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by a member of her entourage. Paramedics were called and they tried to perform CPR on her, but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55PM PST, according to TMZ.

Whitney was to attend Clive Davis‘ annual party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel this evening. TMZ also reports that Whitney had spoken to her cousin Dionne Warwick and mother Cissy Houston just before her death about attending the party and that everything seemed fine.

While there have been no signs of foul play, a full investigation into Whitney‘s death has begun.

Here are some highlights of Whitney‘s career:

  • First female artist to debut an album at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart
  • Appeared in four films, including 2012′s Sparkle
  • Only artist with at least one Grammy, Emmy, MTV Video Music Award, MTV Movie Award, People’s Choice Award, and Billboard Music Award to their name.

    Well a room full of people who did not notice that Whitney was not well!
    R Jay her drug dealer ..! Please this was another over dose just like
    That she was on the floor no one was upset on the phone wanting to know what to do. Again delayed calling 911 until it was too late! Just
    Wonder why she was lying on the floor fainted , no one cared enough
    Too see how she was feeling! Another overdose Michael Jackson
    Heath Ledger etc. Except this time having a publicist who does not want
    To ruin her reputation!

    Whitney was gorgeous and so talented. Then she met the devil…BOBBY BROWN! Wonder if he’ll play the sympathy thing. Meanwhile, he’s the one that got her started. Shame on him

    Bobalob Says:

    Of course she’ll be missed – as anyone who passes would be. If this wasn’t an overdose, it was certainly as a result of a weakened system because of her previous ingestion habits. If you’re not bright enough to avoid drugs then………

    She could have died from an aneurysm or something. That’s the only explanation I can come up with. I really don’t think it was drugs, unless it was an accidental overdose.
