Whitney Houston dead at 48

The wold has lost yet another legend.

According to several news reports, R&B diva Whitney Houston was pronounced dead at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles at 3:55pm local time.

Although details are still forthcoming, many are speculating that the singer’s death could be due in part to her long battle with substance abuse. CNN first reported that Ray J. found Ms. Houston dead in her room just hours ago, but his publicist told the network that Ray J. was “nowhere near” the scene. However, he is reportedly “distraught” about Whitney Houston’s death.

CNN also spoke with Johnny Gil who confirmed that Bobby Brown is currently in Mississippi for a New Edition concert and is “struggling” and “distraught” about Whitney’s death. Gil also told reporters that the couple’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina is “not doing well.”

Houston was in town for this year’s Grammy Awards, which will be taking place Sunday evening in Los Angeles.

Lately, Houston has been on the comeback trail and was excited about producing and starring in the upcoming remake of the film, Sparkle.

Our hearts go out to Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobby Kristina, Bobby Brown, her mother Cissy Houston, and her entire family.

Rest in Power.

    Sad news indeed. Prayers go out to her family, friends and her many fans. I too grew up listening to her music and to me she will always be a star. I found myself humming I will always love you this morning on the way from the train station.Even here in Europe the radio stations and newspapers are paying tribute.

    I was shocked by the news but not entirely surprised. Whitney battled many demons as we all do and those who loved her went to hell and back to try and save her. For that she should not be judged.

    So much has been said about her struggles and failings but let us remember her at her best and for all the wonderful music she gave us. I pray she has finally found the peace that eluded her in life.

    RIP Whitney
