Whitney Houston's Mom

'DEVASTATED' By Death Report

4/5/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cissy Houston and the late Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston
's mother is "devastated" and "inconsolable" over the L.A. County Coroner's Autopsy Report that makes it clear ... Whitney was deep into cocaine when she died.

Cissy Houston is telling close friends ... she cried hysterically when she first heard about the Coroner's findings -- that white powder (which we know tested positive for cocaine), a drug spoon and other trappings of drug use were found in the hotel room. 

Cissy says her biggest fear is that people will now remember her daughter as a druggie, and not a talented singer and family woman.

Cissy singled out Whitney's performance of the National Anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl, saying, "This is the type of thing people should remember Whitney for."

Cissy added, "No one's perfect. Only the Lord can judge."

devastated! Really? She should have seen this coming. I mean come on majority of heavy drug addicts doing drugs there is almost no chance of coming back from that. This is not time for her mom to reflect on harsh reality of the report. What does she want? For them to say no drugs present in room when evidence already clearly shown its there. She should instead think of better times of Whitney before the drugs took whole of her.

RIP

GET REAL, She was a junkie..... Wow, talk about denial. How about all those people around her everyday. Clearly there were enablers. I doubt that Whitney want to the street corner to buy her drugs.. Someone and my guess is many people in her inner cricle, not only knew about her drug use, but since it was chronic.. she was also a hypocrite.. others knew about it and did nothing to help her.. She will be remembered for what she was... Another talent that thought she was bigger and better than everyone else and a JUNKIE, who bascially threw her life away.. It is pitiful but true.

She did so much cocaine that there was a hole in her nose, according to the medical examiner. Why is her mother devestated NOW? Everyone knew she was the biggest user in show business.

I like to remember Whitney from way back. When she had it all going for her and her songs made you move and dance. When you looked at her and thought, what a beautiful talented young woman.
I don't like the direction Whitney took towards drugs, but she did and that's when she started to lose a lot of people's respect. If you know or have ever known an addict it's hard to come back from it. They have to want it. Whitney could not move away from it and in the end drugs won and took her life. It's sad, but it does happen. Prayers to her family that they accept her life choice and she's gone, and I pray they are able to move on with their lives.

Really? so anyone who has overcome substance abuse in the PAST is automatically considered a drug junkie? Where was the investigation? If the police reported there was a polar bear in Whitney Houston's room I bet you would belive that too. Just because something is reported on TV (where the story changes every hour) does not mean it is true, look at the Trayvon Martin case. People are so gullable and will believe any old lie that is thrown towards them. The media counts on people like you. Take time to read the news accounts, the reports and the facts and you will see it is NOT a cut and dry case of drugs and mess. People can get away with anything because no one is calling them on it. But that will NOT happen in Trayvon Martin's case. Just because Whitney has a past problem with substance abuse does not give anyone the write to make up stories, plant evidence and villify her in the media. The truth will come out.

I bet Jesse and Al somehow blame the white man for this. Haw!

And yes, Cissy, Whitney will always be known for her shameful end. When you hook up with thugs, you die a thug.

Oh, cut the crap. Who is she trying to kid. The covering up was nothing but a stall. Accusing and blaming anyone but Whitney herself. Yet, enough time to put together a closed casket funeral, with all the fanfair and hype before the truth comes out. Now Cissy Houston is back to being deveasted? from the autopsy results, true toxicology results, gee, where is the surprise? None.

I will remember Whitney Houston as a talented and beautiful lady with the disease of addiction that crosses all boundaries . I'm sorry for her family and those that loved her as it's up to the person, Whitney, to want and get help. My friend met her and said she was so kind, with a big smile and I love hearing her tell the story of their encounter. THAT'S how I'll remember he, a beautiful spirit that just couldn't get clean. RIP Whitney.

Some people are here are very prejudice with your rude and immature comments, believing the worst and not the best in this situation. I have never seen people relish in the fact that Whitney had trials, we all have trials. Its sick to call names and make fun of them. Say what you what but Whitney will always be an icon and a star and a child of God, no one can take that away.
