Whitney Houston's Death

Sources Say Cocaine Removed

From Singer's Hotel Room

3/22/2012 4:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected to Whitney Houston who were with Whitney the day she died tell TMZ ... an individual removed all traces of cocaine from the room before authorities arrived.

The Coroner's Office says Whitney used cocaine "immediately prior to her collapse."  Investigators who arrived on scene found no traces of cocaine or any other illegal substance.

One source who is extremely close to the situation tells us ... the individual who removed the cocaine was also the person who supplied it to Whitney.

As we previously reported, other items were removed from the room as well, including bed sheets.

The Beverly Hills PD just told TMZ ... its investigation is not closed.  Cops will not comment on whether they are looking at evidence tampering.

Ive seen so many vile, disgusting comments about this woman and it makes me sick. I dont care if she was a drug addict she was a human being and she deserves respect the same for anyone else who has died. Its easy to sit behind a computer and just judge her for her lifestyle but nobody knows how hard it was for her to get clean. I saw that Oprah interview a few years ago and I can see she was trying so hard to get clean and healthy again. Should she had started using drugs? No but when your in that industry a lot of these celebs get tempted especially if their going through a lot of heartbreak to take drugs and this poor woman had a husband who she loved and trusted who got her hooked on drugs. She made a mistake and sadly it has ended her life. Nobody is perfect so stop with the nasty comments, have some compassion and actually think about her poor family especially her daughter and mother who she was so close with and whAt their going through at this sad time.

Are they going to tell us if she had needle marks on her body? Drug addicts shoot up over time, mainline it don't they? So many years of that drug and I say she has marks. Also, wasn't she a cigarette smoker too? That adds to heart disease we all know.

Truth    

RAFFLES VAN EXEL IS THE MAN. HE'S A CON-ARTIST KNOWN TO INFILTRATE INNER CIRCLES OF CELEBS. HE SCREWED GEORGE BENSON OUT OF 25K BY FAKING A ROBBERY CALL AT HIS MANSION. HE SAID HIMSELF ON DUTCH INTERVIEW THAT HE REMOVED ITEMS FROM THE SUITE AND PACKED WHITNEY'S THINGS AFTER DEATH. HE'S INTO COKE DEALING AND OTHER DRUGS. #TRUTH!!

She was clean for two years until she relapsed in 2010. She made it clear to Oprah that she still had cravings for the drugs. And taking it day by day. But unfortunately this is what happens when you relapse. Poor women and I am not shocked by the results.

Hopefully this will act as a wake up call for her daughter but given the fact that both of her parents were druggies I seriously doubt it.


Good thing Whitney set up her will so that Bobby Christina get her inheritance over time and not all at once or she would sniff it all up her nose in a years time.

Sarah; she made the choice to take those drugs, don't blame it all on Bobby. Bobby is a complete waste of life but he didn't force her to take the drugs she was a big girl.

I have no sympathy at all for her or her stupid family She was not only a druggie but a liar Remember all those interviews on Oprah and with Diane Sawyer
No I have taken drugs for a while now.

I have no problem believing SOMEONE cleaned up after she died and even though Whitney chose to take drugs I was also wondering who her supplier was that day. I really don't think it would be hard to figure out who supplied her with drugs that day. Of course, everyone will lie their ass of.

i don't understand the effects of lacing marijuana with cocaine, is that crack cocaine, what's the difference between cocaine and crack and what does it feel like when one smokes it rolled in marijuana, what's the high. i don't get drugs..! doesn't it just speed one up, why does that feel good?
