Pat Houston

Cops Called for

Suicide Scare

Whitney Houston
's sister-in-law Pat Houston was moments from taking her own life ... or several family members thought when they called 911 -- only to discover it was a huge misunderstanding.

TMZ has learned cops and paramedics rushed to Pat's home in Alpharetta, GA today -- after receiving calls from people close to her who thought Pat had tried to commit suicide.

Here's what happened ... hours earlier Pat had posted on her Facebook page, "Sometimes you just feel like giving up on life and its many challenges. And for the first time in my life…I’m tired…and I want to finally rest. I love you guys."

Sources tell us several family members saw the post and were immediately concerned ... they began calling and texting Pat but got no answer. Then they went to her house, found her passed out in bed next to a pill bottle ... and decided to call 911.

We're told as soon as cops arrived, Pat woke up and explained she had simply taken pain medication for her back, turned off her phone and then gone to sleep -- unaware so many people were trying to contact her.

We're told Pat informed everyone ... she was never suicidal, the Facebook post was a result of stress.

Law enforcement tells us, Pat was taken to the hospital -- as a preventative measure -- and released a short time later.

DOESN'T SHE HAVE A HUSBAND??? WHAT IN THE HELL DOES "HE" DO EVERYDAY???


I'm sorry but she'll get "NO SYMPATHY" from "ME"!!! It's time for the "ENTIRE FAMILY" to "ACCEPT THEIR REALITY" and "MOVE THE HELL ON"!!! Without Whitney Houston, they have "NOTHING TO OFFER" the entertainment world. She afforded them access very few people had. They didn't make the most of it and now "THEY'RE LIVING THE BLUES"!!! WELCOME TO THE "REAL WORLD"!!!

Ditto on Carl's comment. Her Facebook post was a cry for help and her retraction was only a change of mind to admit she was suicidal.

It appears that this woman is out to milk Whitney'
name for every penny she can get!!!!!!!

She is so obvious and It appears that the only person she is concerned about is HERSELF!!!!!

I hope Christina is watching what is going on here instead of what her grandmother is doing for this entire situation with what appears to be careers boosted from Whitney's death is very very very sad!!!!!!!
