Whitney Houston’s death was caused by accidental drowning, cocaine ingestion and heart disease, according to a preliminary report issued today by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. Marijuana, anti-anxiety drug Xanax, muscle relaxant Flexeril and over-the-counter allergy medication Benadryl were also found in the singer’s blood, but those substances did not contribute to her death, the report states. No trauma or foul play is suspected, and a final report is expected within two weeks.
Still so sad whatever the cause of her death might have been.
We sincerely hope that Whitney now has peace she didn’t have on this earth.
Certifiably insane William Tapley, the self-proclaimed “Third Eagle of the Apocalypse” whatever the f*ck that is, goes on a ten minute rant about how the death is Whitney Houston is a sign and warning from God. All I can say…WOW! Stupid much?
Jennifer Husdon has been invited by The Grammy Awards to sing a special tribute to honor Whitney Houston who was tragically lost to us this weekend at the Grammy Awards tonight.
She’s a good friend of the Grammys,” [said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammy Awards]. “She’s had some very significant appearances on the show. It felt right to ask to her to come and help us honor Whitney, which she will do musically.”
This will be the 30-year-old Hudson’s third performance at the Grammys. She received a standing ovation for her moving rendition of “You Pulled Me Through” in 2009, in what was one of her first performances after the murder of her mother and brother. That same year, Houston presented Hudson with her Grammy for Best R&B Album. In 2011, Hudson joined Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams onstage to pay tribute to Aretha Franklin.
Whitney presented Jennifer with her first Grammy in 2009.
