Whitney Houston Dead at 48
On February 11, 2012, Whitney Houston was found dead in a suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California, submerged in the bathtub. The cause of death was not immediately known, but it’s fair to say that drugs and alcohol were involved because alcohol, Xanex, and prescription pills were all found in the room. Beverly Hills paramedics arrived at 3:30 p.m. and found the singer unresponsive and performed CPR, but Houston was ultimately pronounced dead at 4:00 p.m.
Houston’s death was a sad ending to an illustrious singing career that had unfortunately been backtracked by years of drug and alcohol addiction. Sadly following her death, it has been claimed that Whitney binged on cocaine, alcohol and pills in her final months and was seemingly out of control. Her former limo driver Al Bowman claims to have driven the singer to run down ghettos to pick up crack from dealers, witnessing Bobby and Whitney having a threesome with an A-list soul singer and that she’d smoked crack in front of her daughter. These claims may not be surprising to many, but Whitney’s story can nevertheless be a lesson for all about the dangers of substance abuse, prescription pills, and mixing substances.
This tragedy, if nothing else, can serve as an eye opener for parents, kids, and current drug and alcohol abusers. Here you have this immense talent with a beautiful singing voice that essentially cut her life short because of bad decision making.
