Whitney Houston Found Underwater In Hotel Bathtub By Entourage
Tale Tela


Whitney Houston was reportedly found underwater in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by her hairdresser yesterday.

The 'Look To You' singer had been in the bathroom getting ready for the Clive Davis annual pre-Grammy Awards party yesterday, when her hairdresser and two bodyguards who were in the bedroom, began to worry when she had been in there for an hour.

Sources have told TMZ that when they began knocking on the door and there was no answer, the female hairdresser entered and screamed when she saw Whitney's face underwater.

Apparently, her body was slumped as though she had slid down the back of the bath.

One of the bodyguards went in and pulled her body out of the water and attempted to resuscitate her, but to no avail. After calling the hotel security, the paramedics were called and she was pronounced dead at 3:55pm.

It was previously reported that prescription pills were found in the hotel room, fuelling the theory that she had taken the medication causing her to fall into a heavy sleep in the bath.

Whitney Houston album price hike sparks controversy

Sony Music has come under fire after it increased the price of a Whitney Houston album on Apple's iTunes Store hours after the singer was found dead.

The music giant is understood to have lifted the wholesale price of Houston's greatest hits album, The Ultimate Collection, at about 4am California time on Sunday. This meant that the iTunes retail price of the album automatically increased from £4.99 to £7.99.

Houston's The Ultimate Collection, originally released in 1997, was the second top-selling album on iTunes on Monday morning. Apple returned the album to its original price late on Sunday.

Music fans described the move as a cynical attempt to capitalise on Houston's in-demand greatest hits records. The price hike came as tributes flooded in for the singer, whose catalogue includes hits such as I Wanna Dance With Somebody and I Will Always Love You. Houston was found dead in her Los Angeles hotel room on Saturday afternoon, local time, at the age of 48.

The change happened when Sony Music, which owns the rights to much of Houston's back catalogue, increased the wholesale price of The Ultimate Collection. This automatically boosted the retail price of the popular album, although Apple is responsible setting the price paid by music fans.

It is understood that the change occurred after Sony Music reviewed Houston's iTunes catalogue after the singer was pronounced dead.

One insider close to the situation said the price hike was not a "cynical" move – but that the wholesale price of Houston's The Ultimate Collection was wrong. The change in wholesale price boosted the album's retail price on iTunes.

Houston's The Ultimate Collection and Whitney – The Greatest Hits were in the top three albums on iTunes at noon on Monday.

Apple and Sony Music declined to comment.

Whitney Houston's death ruled accidental drowning by LA coroner

Autopsy findings reveal heart disease and chronic cocaine use were contributing factors to the superstar's death in February

Los Angeles coroner's office has ruled that Whitney Houston died from drowning in a hotel bathtub. However, officials said that heart disease and chronic cocaine use were contributing factors to the singer's death.

The autopsy findings end weeks of speculation about what killed her on 11 February, on the eve of America's Grammy awards.

Houston was found submerged in the bathtub of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and her death has been ruled as accidental. Several bottles of prescription medications were found in her hotel room, but coroner's officials said they were not in excessive quantities.

"We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure," Patricia Houston, the singer's sister-in-law and manager, wrote in a statement to the Associated Press.

Beverly Hills police said in a statement there was no evidence of wrongdoing in connection with Houston's death.

Craig Harvey, of the coroner's office, said cocaine and its byproducts were found in Houston's system, and the drug was listed as a contributing factor in her death. He said the results indicated Houston was a chronic cocaine user.

Toxicology results also showed Houston had marijuana, Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril, and the allergy medication Benadryl in her system.

The singer also had a heart disease that caused blockages in her arteries.

Assistant chief coroner Ed Winter said the condition is common in drug users, although he said it was not clear whether Houston had a heart attack on the day she died. "It just beats up their heart," he said.

The exact amount of cocaine in Houston's system was not disclosed but will be contained in a full autopsy report to be released in about two weeks, officials said.
