Whitney Houston's Sister

I 'Don't Know How'

Whitney Got in the Tub

3/12/2012 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston's sister-in-law Pat is throwing more fuel on the fire for those people who think Whitney may have been murdered ... saying she does not know how Whitney ended up in the bathtub of her hotel room on the night she died.

As TMZ first reported, the L.A. County Coroner's Office has received phone calls and emails from people claiming to be relatives of Houston ... who say they believe Whitney was murdered.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired tonight on OWN, Pat described the scene that night, saying, "Don't know how she got [in the tub] ... I just know they had to pull her out of [the tub]."

The Coroner has already said there was no sign of foul play or trauma, but the official cause of death won't be determined until toxicology results are in.

If she doesn't know how a person gets into a bathtub, she needs to go back to kindergarten.

at the beginning of the interview Oprah said Whitney was found Face Down in the tub. She did not slide under as was reported. Why is everyone ignoring that fact, the whole thing is fishy and the family knows it too. The police should have done an investigation, especially knowing what they went thru when Michael died.

What a crock!

The whole family of leeches, including that girl who needs to spend some of her millions on her front teeth, are trying to place blame in every direction except where it needs to be placed.

She had a drug addiction. Period.

Don't taint her memory with a false narrative.

RIP Whitney.

I'm sorry for their loss, but come on. She has had drug / alcohol problems for years. She was washing down Xanax with booze. Something I'm sure she's been doing for years...she did it one too many times. Only one person is to blame, and you need to accept that and move on.

I agree, it should have been investigated as soon as it happened. They should have taken statements from all of the people involved. There was no proof that she was doing any kind of drugs that day, and the family/friends statement support that fact. It was foul play. Even her daughter said that all of those negative statements and assumptions being made about her mom are not true. I hope somebody looks into what happened, police, private investigator, etc.

Another hanger on wanting to stay in the limelight. Ya sure these loons aren't related to the Jacksons?

who cares. She od'd whether accidental or on purpose. She stayed and was still wasted up until she took the bath. That simple.

Please enough is enough. Let the subject close. The family only wants to do whatever it takes to make more $$$. She was a drug and alcohol addict, she played with fire and she got burned. ENOUGH

That is NOT what she said!!! She said she didn't know how Whitney got ON THE FLOOR!!!!! If you're going to report something, report it right!

She is the sister-in-law, not the sister.

A minor detail, but Pat was Whitney's sister-in-law, married to her brother, Gary, not her sister.

This is just laughable she was a drug addict even if she allegdly gave up illegal hard drugs she just swapped for prescription drugs an mixed with alcohol it will always catch them out. Obviously the family members don't have her to leach on now so it is free for all paid for interviews. Sad really but some people are too lazy to do a honest job for their money. Entire family is just a joke

I find it strange how that once a celebrity dies, thier family and friends all of a sudden start going to the press for the most stupid of things, its almost like they are all milking it now, its really sick. Same happened after Mj's death, all of a sudden anyone and everyone went to the press.
