I just wrote a post saying that Whitney Houston needed help, and less than 48 hours after a wild night at Kelly Price’s Pre-Grammy party, singer Whitney Houston is dead. Just one night away from The 54th Grammy Award, and a few months away from the premiere of Sparkle, singer Whitney Houston dies.
The sad thing is no one knows how or where she was found dead as of now, but reports are coming in. All we know is that according to breaking news, the singer is gone.
UPDATE: Latest – Whitney was found by her hairdresser in the bathtub underwater, her bodyguard removed her unconscious body and began CPR. According to TMZ, Xanax was discovered at the scene, and Whitney may have accidentally drowned from falling asleep in the tub under the influence of the prescription drug. An autopsy will be performed today, but results may not be released until after the toxicology reports are finished. Cause of death as of today, still under investigation.
UPDATE: 8:03 PM- Paramedics were called to the Beverly Hilton today when Houston was found unresponsive in her hotel room … sources tell TMZ.
We’re told police arrived to the scene within minutes and fire was already there on another call. According to our sources, paramedics performed CPR but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.
UPDATE: 7:41 PM- Ray J found the singer’s body in the hotel room, and is visibly upset according to CNN. Ray J says, “I’m tripping right now.”
UPDATE 7:40 PM- According to our sources, Houston died at the Beverly Hilton hotel. A police crime lab vehicle was seen outside the hotel just moments ago.
Soon as more information comes in we will update this post, but prior to this information Whitney Houston’s behavior was described as erratic. RIP! You can see that she needed help, I just don’t understand Hollywood sometimes…They had to know she wasn’t healthy. Here’s what TMZ is reporting:
UPDATE: Spoke to the LA correspondent, at Kelly Price’s party. She said Whitney was energetic, cordial, and happy at the party. Ms Houston RSVP’d the night before and agreed to sing for FREE!!! She also explained that Stacy Francis was the one that bumped into Whitney Houston, but the exchange may have lasted a few seconds. There wasn’t anything physical. The correspondent also said she wouldn’t even call it a fight, the whole thing was blown way out of proportion. When asked why did Whitney appear tired toward the end, she simply said Whitney was all over the party full of energy. I asked repeatedly if anything seemed out of place, and she said no. Just wanted to make sure we got this story right for Whitney and her family!!! RIP…
UPDATE: This post was written just shortly before we found out Whitney Houston has dies. These are the last public moments of the singer, and unfortunately they were not good publicity moments. RIP Whitney Houston! I really hope there’s peace…
First let me give props to iLuLu Online for having the courage to post this story, while fighting the Whitney stans on twitter…
Whitney Houston attended Kelly Price’s Pre-Grammy party, and decided to get on stage to sing a special version of Jesus Love Me to Kelly Price. When I saw the video my first thought was, and I am being honest, “I hope Whitney is not back on that stuff!” An hour later, I saw this picture below, and I was wondering aloud, “Why does Whitney Houston look as though she’d just been in a fight?”
Well it turns out that Whitney was fighting X factor contestant, Stacy Francis, over Ray J in the club. Yes, a cougar on cougar smack down of words over Brandy’s little brother Ray J. Sadly, Stacy Francis wasn’t even checking for Ray J, she was just saying hello because she’d known Ray J for awhile, but Whitney wasn’t trying to hear that. Details when you continue…
It’s not who was there, is more like who wasn’t there!!! Everyone from Jennifer Hudson to Gabrielle Union to lost and found folks like Elise Neal, Golden Brooks, and Morris Chestnut. The red carpet was burning with so much support for Steve Harvey’s book turned movie, Think Like A Man, starring Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Regina Hall, Kevin Hart, Jerry Ferrara, Taraji P Henson, Gabrielle Union, Romany Malco, Terrence J, and an appearance by Chris Brown.
So imagine all of these cast members and their celebrity friends and family, and you have one fun movie premiere night full of black celebs. Think Like A Man will be coming to theater near you, April 20th.
Wilona (Ja’net DuBois) from Good Times, was there, too. Lots and lots of pics when you continue…
Jennifer Hudson is in LA for The Grammy Awards, and she makes a special appearance with mentor Clive Davis on the Piers Morgan show. Checkout her outfit below, and you can’t tell me she doesn’t look like a model in this picture:
