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.

    This is so upsetting. Idk. Why so many black celebrities have been passing away Whitney Houston and her music will forever live on and I pray her family stays strong. I also hope that though this so tragic Bobbi Kristina will change her life in honor of her mother and do the one thing her mother wasn’t able to do.
