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.

everyone always points the finger to blame somebody when a person dies. smh. dont blame the people she was with. they didnt tell her to get high, she didnt respect herself. her entourage didnt fail her...she failed herself.

TMZ have practically fingered the bodyguard as their "source" here. They've certainly narrowed it down to only 4 people.

John Travoltas son had an Entourage watching him, but they were not really on the ball. Whitney had an Entourage to drive her here and their, escourt her out of clubs into a waiting car. Yet nobody watched her in her hotel room. They were Just there doing what?

Wait. So, there is a possibility Whitney got drunk, took Xanax, feel asleep in the tub and drowned??? That's a effed up way to die.

I just find it funny how the article has to specify that her hairdresser was a 'female" who cares.. Your right though. These handlers are just in it for the big ride and payday and want to say they are part of WH's Entourage. They probably told her to go take a bath to relax and soak off all the booze from the night before to refresh. ..And I am sorry. I never believe it when I hear about these rooms having no illegal drugs in them etc. HELLO.. You have 5 staffers in that room with you. One calls 911 and the other 4 are scrambling throwing out any illegal drugs they can find. The enablers strike again!!

Taking Xanax is POWERFUL! What is wrong with Doctors that give this out to someone who had drugs problems. Then take a bath? They tell you you can not really do anything since it zones you out. Shame but, is it others problem to baby sit on a 48 year old women? Or anyone? It is a shame but that might have been the cause of her dying. Drinking the night before and then having that combo in your system slows your heart into cardiac arrest. Not sure if that h happened but if they rule out stroke, heart attack then most lately it was the combo of both that slows down the respiratory breathing. Shame, especially for daughter to see. Ass parents we need to be role models for our children. Taking a prescription drugs all seems ok because it was from a doctor and not some dealing.....Really...think again!

Irony is how they were playing "Greatest Love Of All" on the radio last night. And her greatest love turned-out to be drugs. She didn't "love herself". And guess what? They took "away her dignity".

Hearing this makes it worse, because that means it could've been prevented. Such a tragedy, and tragic accident if this story holds up.

Tragic. It seems bodyguards and entourages are no match against drugs.
