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.

You know what, it is getting old praising these spoiled drug addicts when they inevitably die of overdoses. She had the world by the short hairs, 20 years ago. Since then she has contributed to the greater good by supporting her local crack dealer. This is no great loss as she has contributed nothing to society for a long, long time! At least after this week we will not have to hear about her anymore!

A sadly undignified condition in which to be found,but not as bad as Elvis doing a swan dive off a commode.
I puzzle at the wisdom of removing an addicts' street drugs and replacing them with equally lethal 'legal' drugs.

After looking at the photos of all the celebs at the Pre Grammy Party....shows how shallow and fickle hollywood is. Whitney Houston dies a few hours before and they're all laughing and joking like it's nothing. What a messed up group of narcasistic people.

I still cant believe Whitney Houston is gone. Thats all I've been thinking about. My heart goes out to her family, esp her mom and daughter. Its just heartbreaking.

Another superstar/ singer who thought it was more important to be hyped out on drugs than to be a mother to her daughter. Sources say she was so stressed out- who in this world today is not stressed out over something that is taking place in their life? Her eighteen year old daughter is now without her mother. Sad!

Blame it on the water, TMZ. Can't blame the Xanax. The drug companies will lose money.

I think it was the curse of Ray J! he just has bad karma. His sister Brandy doesn't have good karma either, she killed a woman with her car.
