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.

  • 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.

    Rest in peace, Whitney Houston. You portrayed the Greatest Love of All in your legendary music. It made me and many others So Emotional and gave us a time in difficulties to Exhale. You Almost Had It All. You helped me realise countless things that are priceless, never mind worth just a Million Dollar Bill. You Were Loved…. then in just One Moment in Time, All At Once….. I have to say “Rest in peace, Whitney Houston.”

    My heart is breaking. Yes she had suffered from addictions, but her voice was so beautiful. We all should concentrate on sending love and prayers to her mother Cissy Houston, and daughter Bobbi Christina. This is what is really important now. God called her home so she can rest. Let us all feel the gratitude and thanks that we had her around as long as we did. The world has become a little darker today, and God speed Whitney, may you live to the fullest in the next life.

  • Lisa

    This is tragic and very sad, but classic, in that it does not surprise me at all !!! this is the ultimate outcome of drug addiction!!! A one way ticket to an early grave!!! Elvis, Janice joplin, marilyn Manroe, Rick James, Kieth Ledger, Anna Nicole Smith ect, ect, ect, and the list goes on and on and on!!!!

    When are these talented people gonna get it ??? Too much money= too much fun, and these people play too hard !!!

    Whittney was a great talent, this is very sad !!!

  • Darylarn

    YAY! No more Twitney!

    The world is a nicer place without her.
    Now to work on Bobby.

    RIP Sister, you’ve seen it and that’s why you looked to him before parting this sinful world of ours. RIP again.

  • Dom

    No one ever sang the Star Spangled Banner like you did Whitney.
    I shall never, ever, forget that ‘moment in time’. Thank you so much
    for sharing your gift with us. I shall never forget you. ‘I will always love you’.

    Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
    No one of us knows what we will do or become before our time on earth ends.
    So it behooves now of us to judge or pass judgement.
    Instead of judging, why can’t we not pray that a situation like this does not occur in another family.
    Whitney was a daughter, a mother, a sister, a niece, a cousin and so much more.
    When my brother passed away, some folks in our community before they sympathise, during our time of grief, they were making negative comments, even though during his good times, he helped so many. It hurts. So I am beseeching, even begging people to desist in making hurtful and negative comments, please stop.

    He who hath no sin, cast the first stone, that means everyone. Let us show love to the family, friends and fan. God Bless each and everyone.

    Rest in peace Whitney. Your mission was accomplished . Your music will forever live on I will also continue to pray for your daughter, mom and the rest of your family to God be the glory!…
