Whitney Houston

Found Underwater

2/12/2012 8:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston was found in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday ... with her face underwater
Whitney Houston was found in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday ... with her face underwater ... people close to Whitney tell TMZ.

According to our sources, her stylist, hairdresser and two bodyguards were among the people in the room at the time. We're told they became worried about Whitney because she had been in the bathroom for over an hour and it was time to start getting ready for the Clive Davis party. 

Our sources say they began to knock on the door and there was no answer. We're told the hairdresser, who is female, went in to check on Whitney. She immediately screamed and, according to our sources, one of the bodyguards came running in and pulled her out of the tub. 

We're told Whitney's face was below the water and her legs were up ... like she had slid down the back of the tub. 

According to our sources, her body was very cold and the bodyguard attempted CPR. That's when hotel security was called. 

Paramedics arrived shortly thereafter, but Whitney was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.

her own team failed her... If they felt that she was taking to long they should have checked on her earlier not wait over an hour later.

Did they not recognize that she was high? Did nobody in that room think, "Hmmmm, she's high - a bath might not be a good idea. I'd better check on her." Unbelievable.

she died under the nose of people that were suppose to be watching over her. Body guard, stylist, hair and make up, etc! Her entourage totally failed...

Wow. It could have happened to anyone. If she was taking Xanax like the reports say, that medication makes you drowsy and can put you in a dead sleep.

Have they questioned Ray J yet? What's up with people acting shocked about all this? Whitney was fab back in the day but she's been a crackhead for years. This is no surprise. Also, look at her choice in men? Bobby crackhead Brown and a dude who did a sex tape with a Kartrashian!

Let see, Brandy is responsible for one murder and now her brother is also responsible for a murder. You lower the standards of celebrity and you let the serial killers in.

I tell you what, it must have been strange to be at that big Clive Davis pre-Grammy party last night.

It must have been chilling just knowing that Whitney's 48 year old dead body was a few floors above them in her hotel room. Insiders close to Whitney probably knew that she was found underwater in the bathtub too. It must have felt a bit like a real life horror movie.

That would explain her sudden death- i have been so tried relaxing in the tub, that i almost fell asleep once, after that i finished my bath and got out of the tub. Someone should have checked on her sooner, not many people stay in the tub over an hour. Something tells me she probably died 15 mintues after she got in the tub.

I am sure the Xanax put her out and helped her drown without even knowing it
