Celine Dion

Drugs Killed Whitney Houston

Celine Dion isn't waiting for the coroner to give an official cause of death for Whitney Houston because she apparently knows what killed her ... drugs. 

Speaking to "Good Morning America" today via phone, Dion wasted no time pinning Houston's untimely passing on drug abuse. She told Robin Roberts, "Whitney has been an amazing inspiration for me ... It's just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people or bad influence took over. It took over her dreams. It took over her love and motherhood."

Dion immediately linked Houston's death with other famous people who died from drugs. She went on to say, "When you think about Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse, to get into drugs like that, for whatever reason. Is it because of the stress and bad influence? What happens when you have everything?"

A cause of death has not yet been determined, but sources close to Houston's family tell TMZ the coroner has told them she died from Xanax and other prescription drugs mixed with alcohol.

TMZ, I don't understand the snarky tone towards Celine here.

Maybe she reads your website....you know, the site where you just published AN EXCLUSIVE that the corner told her family she died from drugs.

seriously, you can't have it both ways here. Don't be snarky towards celebs for repeating what you've been saying.

I makes no difference if you have "everything" when something (even if you can't identify it) is missing. So sad.

TMZ, always writes up these articles in a tone to try to incite hate on to another celebrity.

She said what so many feel, think and are also saying. So what.

INFLUENCE? what does she mean by that? I'm sorry but Whitney was NEVER an innocent child that could be pushed around and made to fall into drugs. People want to say Bobby B was a bad influence...COME ON. Whitney was a DIVA! She had control in that 15 YEAR marriage! If anything it was Whitney that influenced him AND her own daughter! Celine needs to sit down and STFU!
