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.

Kind of strange that Micheal Jackson dies the night before the BET Awards, Amy Winehouse dies the night before the MTV Awards and now Whitney Houston dies the night before The Grammy...The Industry killed them and y'all to blind to see It. Monica also stated that when Whitney came to see them to help them prepare for the awards Whitney seemed troubled and scared but wouldn't tell Monica what was wrong. Wake up people when you don't want to do the things the Industry way anymore they take care of It. Water found In her lungs but no sign of drugs In her system, she talked to her mom hours before her passing and was fine! This seems suspect just Saying!

Jesus loves us all    

For those who are making negative comments about her, it is sad for many souls that this is being done. Instead of making negative remarks, I suggest we pray for her family and especially her daughter because she is really going through it some kind of bad and don't think she would like the remarks being said out of disrespect about her mom. None of us know Whitney personally but I do know that she had a special gift that only God could have given her, a bueatiful voice and He got the glory out of it. Right now we need to pray for her daughter's strength and mental health in this tough time. For the only judge is God and He will judge good and bad done. Becareful of how you speak of one because the script can flip and the same can be measured to you as well. God loves us all even when some of you were or still is in your sin, He still loved you.

Maybe, just maybe Bobby had kept her alive through addiction and now without him around there was no one to watch over her.

What did we really expect though: We blamed him, so she got divorced. We wanted her to come back and when she wasnt what we wanted to hear we booed her, told her in front of the media that she was no good anymore. What did we think she would do?

Then step in the good doctors who peddle drugs that look better than illegal drugs and can be just as deadly, if not more so because of the the "safety" of being prescribed. If she had died from cocaine we would be on a manhunt to find and convict the person who had given her the drug. But not a drug company that knows what havac these drugs are doing to families across this country? I think its time for the drug comps. to be just as liable as a street dealer. 10 billion dollars a year in sales should come with some accountability.

She is more than an another "drug" story. Her life deserves to be much more than just another "cautionary" tale. The gifts she had, the joy she brought, and the lives she was able to help should be remembered much more than what is being done to her.

I never knew Whitney from Adam, but I felt so close to her from this distance(*****ia). I felt like a very close friend I knew from time just passed away.

the people that were in that room did fail her i believe. they knew her first hand on a daily basis. all these many years of torture she had cause of drugs the people closest to whitney were they afraid of her. afraid of confronting her? afraid of lossing there jobs if they did confront her?did they try to keep her on the straight and narrow but she became a master of deception? serious sad all the caregivers she had around her 24-7 & no one was able to get to her? get her help and keep getting her help til she got it! god created whitney with that voice that at first sang praises to her creator and then satan got a hold of her and destroyed her, destroying her voice then then desroying whitney.
