Teena Marie Death -- No Illegal Drugs Found

12/27/2010 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

No illegal drugs were found at the home where singer Teena Marie's body was discovered yesterday ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Teena Marie Dead
We're told officials searched Teena's home in Pasadena , CA -- but only found some herbal medication -- and we're not talking marijuana.

We're told an autopsy and toxicology tests will be performed on her body later this week -- but so far, officials are leaning towards the theory that she died of natural causes.

As we previously reported, Teena -- once considered Rick James' protégée -- suffered a grand mal seizure just one month ago.

To those who feel the need to post hateful comments: If you could listen to Teena Marie's music and not feel any emotion, you need a heart transplant! Teena had a voice that could melt steel. Mary J. Blige and Alicia keys are paying tribute to the Ivory Queen of Soul!! Lady Gaga, Mariah & Whitney will never hold a candle to Teena Marie!!

@Itchy_Balls sounds to me that you need to go to the doctors and get your nasty, itchy ass balls checked, my suggestion for you, stop raping little boys and maybe your balls won't itch so much. #2, Teena was never FAT, and it clearly states that it may be related to her seizer, she may have had aneurism in her sleep, who knows? they hadn't even confirmed the cause of death yet, so what in the hell are you talking about? if anyone needs to get their fat ass off the computer it's you!your throwing stones in a glass house dumb ass...respect the dead, and maybe if your lucky your sorry ass won't die in your sleep like she did...

Lady T, you are an example of the great die young. Valentine's Day at the House of Blues will neer be Valentine's again. I believe you reached the exact amount of success you wanted as many entertainers do. Your talent was good enough,the lifestyle if you go all the way, sucks a lot. I'd like to believe she was right where she wanted to be. I will forever pray for her beautiful daughter, for peace and contentment. I can't imagine how life is for her right now, it is hard to lose your Mommy but when they are a star and is all over, I can't imagine how hard it is. I hope she realizes that all her Mom's fans love her and are with her if in heart only. God is really getting to enjoy the incredible voice he made. Teena you are now and will always be my favorite.
