Whitney Houston

Cocaine Found in Hotel Room

3/30/2012 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Authorities recovered cocaine in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died.
Authorities recovered cocaine in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died ... TMZ has learned.

As for the quantity of cocaine that was found, official documents show one of the items police recovered was "white, powdery remnants." Sources tell us the powder was tested and it's cocaine.

We're told Beverly Hills detectives are NOT investigating rumors that someone removed cocaine from the room, because they're convinced it wasn't removed.

Sources directly involved in the investigation told TMZ early on ... no illegal drugs were recovered from the room. We have circled back with these sources who now tell us they were unaware at the time that cocaine was present.

Bottom line -- cops are in the final stages of their investigation, but they are not focusing on anyone who possibly removed cocaine, because authorities are in possession of the goods.

Yes, Whitney was known for drug use but even so no one can ever match her talent! HA HA HA... Most female singers today are all about hype and not talent so enjoy the hype.

People seem to get upset at the celebs who use drugs but why be hypocrites? You have agents, directors, management who want their stars working 24/7 without a break for the almighty dollar. Some like their stars extra skinny as well. Who do you think has set doctors and allows s***bag dealers on the sets? Then there's the dead celeb sells more albums in death, right? Within 30 minutes of WH death calls were made to boost the sell of her records by 60 percent. No one here seems to be made at the vultures who made WH what she was.

People need to stop being nasty. Yes she was a drug addict and its stupid to take drugs but I think this poor woman was just around the wrong people for most of her life and she obviously got tempted to do them. Living a celebrity life is very hard work and she was pressured from a young age to be something she wasn't to impress people and the public and meeting that ex husband didn't help he just made her even worst. She was actually clean for 2 years and you could see that in the Oprah interview but had a relapse in 2010 and went into rehab and from then she was sadly going downhill again. If she was away from all those hangers on and enablers I believe she would of kicked her habit for good and be alive today. Trust me it is hard to get away from that life I have never used drugs but Ive seen people who do drugs then get themselves clean and the dealers are putting pressure and pressure on them and following them about everywhere persuading them to buy a hit and they lose their willpower and buy it and go back to the same place again. The s***bag dealers have a lot to answer for too and I wish the police did a lot more to catch them. This woman needed to move somewhere else and away from all the bad people in her life and start a fresh start somewhere else sadly its too late now. The daughter now needs to be watched and looked after by someone who actually cares about her because these people who helped destroy her poor mothers life will do the same to her.

You're right Sarah, Whitney was around the wrong ppl. But you know how they say, "you can run but you sho' can't hide" Them evil spirits were gonna get her no matter who she's with. Whether it's Bobby or somebody else. Cause that's it's prerogative, to do so, and it will not give up. Whitney was spellbindered, that's what happened. Somebody else had something to do with that. The same thing happened to Michael Jackson. Psychics will tell you the same thing. You better ask somebody, these ppl. are dangerous. Instead of being a multi-millionaire celeb.in front of millions and millions of haters. I'll take a job as the floor sweeper in KFC. lmao You know what I'm saying? At least I can mind my business.
