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.

How did they find Whitney's body 30 mins after talking to her mom if she was in the tub for over an hour? Unless she was in the tub and talking to her mother? Little iffy that she would take these pills supposedly in a room full of people and it would take that long to check on her. Do you take Xanax that long before performing?

I will tell ya right now that Xanax was not the only thing she was taking...I have a script for Xanax and can function fully when I take 3....this would not knock her out

My heart breaks for her family. Why is the death of a celebrity an opertunity to bash them. She sang beautiful music. She suffered in ways we cannot imagine, now she is dead. I can only hope that she has now found peace.

Whitney Houston was a human being just like the rest of us. She blessed us with her beautiful voice and we should remember her for her talent, not her human flaws. It's so easy for people to sit behind a computer screen and judge someone they never knew. R.I.P. Whitney and thank you for the memories.

Funny how people are blaming her entourage instead of blaming the drug addict herself. There is no one else to blame but HER. SHE is the one who arrogantly said "crack is whack" and kept continuing to do drugs. I don't have one bit of sympathy for her. She was a celebrity who had all the resources to get clean but didn't care because they all think they are invincible.

no one is responsible for Whitney's death but Whitney! Even if her "people" had noticed she was high, they have probably seen it before and thought nothing of it as it may have been a common occurrence with nothing negative happening before. If Whitney OD'd and drowned in a tub then that's ALL on Whitney. Yes it is sad to see her pass, she was a great talent, but one who had her demons. Anyone who has seen true addiction will tell you, if the addict doesn't want to be saved, there's not a damn thing you can do about.
