According to celebrity gossip website TMZ.com, pop icon Whitney Houston was already dead before her head slipped under the water in a hotel bathtub Saturday. TMZ had previously reported that Houston, 48, drowned in the tub after ingesting a cocktail of prescription anti-anxiety pills mixed with alcohol already present in her system.

But a family member has confirmed to TMZ that, according to the LA coroner's office, Houston died of a prescription drugs overdose. This is the same cause of death that was told to Sandrarose.com exclusively by a family friend in the hours following Houston's death.

The record label exec, who was on his way to Houston's hotel to be with the Houston family, reached out to Sandrarose.com to correct misinformation that was in the news media. Specifically, he wanted our readers to know that Houston's leech, Ray J, was not with her when she died, and that Whitney died of a drug overdose.

Knowing I was one of the few bloggers with this info, I immediately logged onto Twitter.com to inform my followers -- who responded by attacking my source's integrity.

This is why credible sources have a hard time giving accurate information to blogs, because people who read blogs often have difficulty processing the truth -- you would rather believe ridiculous rumors.

According to TMZ, Whitney's mom has arranged to have the singer's body flown back to Atlanta, as early as tomorrow. The funeral will be held here in Atlanta -- the city that she loved.

Update I, 12:19PM ET:

CNN reports that Whitney's funeral will be held in her hometown of New Jersey on Friday or Saturday.

    Sandra I truly think you were attacked by the way you were saying things. You said Ray J killed Whitney because he was dragging her to Grammy parties.

  • cheeks8683

    I'll wait for the official toxicology report to come out...How is a family member going to know whats going on when they wouldn't even let her own daughter see her body. They don't know ish yet...For all we know she could have had a heart attack...years of abuse can take a toll on your body...

    HER DEATH WAS SUICIDE REGARDLESS OF INTENTIONAL OR ACCIDENTAL, IT WAS HER TIME AND GOD CALLED HER HOME TO REST SO SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO SUFFER ANYMORE

    IT IS WHAT IT IS, CELEBRATE HER LIFE & REJOICE THAT SHE IS NO LONGER IN PAIN

    First of all you could've picked a better picture! Second, I'll wait for the official report. All these folks leaking information and the story keep changing. Yesterday there was a story that water was found in her lungs but today's story is she was already dead before going under water. So people need to hush and wait until all the evidence is back and an official report is released.

    Sandra if that's what her friends was saying then let dem say it why did you have to repeat that? Whitney is 48 years old how in the hell do you drag somebody to a damn party at the age.

    Was I the only one that felt that the Whitney tribute was kinda weak...I know it was last minute but they could have given Jennifer more time and cut Nikki Minaj's mini movie out of the show completely...it was so tasteless.

At my wedding, was I not supposed to have adult beverages b/c of the struggles of one?

    @ Fe - EXACTLY! Like I said, I understand what you are tom'bout! Truly I do! But in the 12 step program, which I've learned alot about because the first couple of years, I went to the meetings w/my mother EVERY CHANCE I GOT, it teaches you to surround yourself w/the proper people, places and/or things! Again, I know she was prolly vunerable, and Ray J's actions are deplorable at best, but again, so is the body guards who was in the room, her entourage...because let's be honest, it was complaints about the partying going on in her room. I find it tacky at best to only blame Ray J.

    WHITNEY made her own decisions... ray j a druggie himself hell he supposed to help her... it was the blind leading the blind.... i blame her inner circle because they should have told his azz to SHOE FLY... but in typical "industry" fashion they were using her as well.... I am just going to say may she rest in peace... i think she committed suicide but that is my personal opinion... no way you take all them drugs... and then get in the tub... WTH

    I've watched numerous interviews of Whitney during her last years over the weekend. The most poignant thing she said was during an interview with Diane Sawyer. She said she is her own worst enemy and that no one tells her what to do. Whitney did what she wanted. No one MADE her do anything.

    No matter the reason for her death, it came way too soon. And instead f vilifying her, I would rather celebrate her talent, her voice, and her life. Because up until the last 10 years or so, Whitney lived the life of dreams.

    We will always love you, Nippy!

Knowing this is his MO, she should have chosen to not be with him. Unless there's pictures of him holding a gun to her telling her to chug, and swallow, it was a choice she made. Unfortunate but true. I have a girlfriend that's a straight out whore, will I EVER take her around my man? NO, because she will CHOOSE to give him her puzzay and I don't want to end up on Snapped via the First 48

    I'm kinda disappointed in the comments you guys and tatted
    yes we are all grown and no one can "force" us to do things however we are all our brothers keepers, if we see our children doing wrong we try to correct, we friends are doing wrong we try to assist and correct, and the same with family members.

    Babe, if you was struggling w/ alcohol if I loved and cared about you why would i take you to a bar? or even invite you to one? :shrug:

    We are here to love and serve each other, yes we are ultimately responsible for our actions but what type of life would you lead if you had no support? if everyone in your life was like you on your own? I happened to agree with Sandra I maybe wouldn't have chosen those words to use to get my point across but the message is the same. That goes for everybody her "crew", ray j and whomever else enabled her.
    People who love you do not assist you in your self destruction.
    sorry for the rant

  • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

    While I do think that Ray J is an opprotunist (sp) I do not belive that he had anything to do with killing Whitney :no: My father is an alcoholi and ain't NOTHING me,my mom,a dui,his OWN health,etc can say or do to make him change. When an addict is in thier disease they are gonna do what they want to do when they want to do it. You can tell them no all day and tell them that if you do this,then this will happen and it does not matter.

    If you dont think an alcoholic/ drug addict can be EASILY influenced or coerced into doing things they shouldnt be doin, then clearly you are NAIVE. They be LOOKIN for a REASON/EXCUSE. Yes, Whitney was a grown woman, but Ray J is a grown man that CLAIMS to love her. He's supposed to be a close family friend. He KNEW this woman was ILL and BATTLING a DISEASE. He was put in a postion where he COULD HAVE ATTEMPTED to PROTECT her, but he didnt. He wanted to party and be seen.

    Ray J always been cool with me, corny but cool. But Im sure he will FOREVER feel guilty for not STEPPIN UP and being a MAN abt this situation. He had a RESPONSIBILITY as her SO-CALLED BOYFRIEND/ long time friend.

    People need NOT forget that alcohol and drug addiction is an ILLNESS. You wouldnt be COUGHING on a someone with AIDS, SMOKING over a CANCER patient, or feeding COOKIES to a diabetic with no legs.

    YES, Whitney Houston made some BAD choices, but SOME of the people around her DEFINITLY enabled her and let her make a fool of herself for THEIR selfish gain. Ex: Being Bobby Brown Series

    Thing is this, you don't dangle meat in front of a dog because you know the dog is going to snap at it. The same rings true for an addict. You don't take a known addict to a party, much less a bunch of them knowing they already lack the necessary self control to keep them from inflicting self-harm.

    I have an addict in my family and clearly people that are saying "I don't understand how someone else could be resposible for her own actions," don't know an addict. Addicts make their own decisions BUT RAY-J did not help the situation at all by willingly taking her and surrouding her with the part of the demons that possess her. And there are some fools that believe that Ray-J really cared about Whitney? That bimbo was only concerned with getting his status up and that would include being seing with and pimping Whitney to the press. Why is it so hard for people to understand this?

    When I heard about the whole Xanax situation, I am concerned with that medication because I know that stuff can have you knocked out in minutes.

    Anything in excess is not good for you but this whole comparing food to crack I don’t know about all of that

    I get the comparison. IMO I see it as meaning Obese people or people with certain medical conditions know that certain foods are bad for them and will cause them harm but they still continue to eat the because they are addicted to that food and it makes them feel good. Crackheads know that crack is bad for them but they still continue to use it becuase it makes them feel good and they are addicted to they substance

  • OutsidetheBox

    My dad was on crack for many a year. I think its okay for everybody to give their experience(s) as well.

    I know that everyone should be held accountable for their own actions but why would they give a recovering addict a shyt load of prescription drugs? Why compensate her illegal drugs with prescribed ones :shrug:

    Same thing with Wayne. He has a known syrup addiction but its acceptable because its prescribed now.

    Not speaking ill will but I hope this is a wake call for Rhianna.

    Still :pray: for Krissy. That child has got be catch hell right now

  • Terri B

    So what about the Pre Grammy party that she was supposed to attend? Would it been okay for her to attend that since Ray J wasn't there? Or is it only when Ray J is around when its a problem? I'm going to guess drinking was not a once in every blue moon thing Whitney did whenever she hooked up with him. I'm sure there may have been some in her home, in her hotel room, hell she could have occasionally sip some while she bath. So Ray J or not, I'm sure there was bond to be alcohol in her system eventually. Stop trying to find someone to blame.

  • LolliepopLyfe

    Keep praying for that family and especially Bobbi K... It is hard for anyone who has a parent that dies when they are young but for children who have parents with addictions, it can be extremely difficult. They tend to internalize it more and even blame themselves. The Mother/Daughter dynamic is skewed when addiction comes into play and even reverses roles. There was a story that I heard (with the understanding that it IS hearsay at this point) where Whitney was skipping around the lobby of the hotel and doing handstands by the pool and Bobbie K came and took her to her room. That lil girl is in PAIN right now. Bless her Lord.

    Food is dangerous over time. If you eat nothing but fatback, fried EVERYTHING, processed foods, no greens, etc it will take a toll on your body. It may not kill you but it will put a beating on your body inside and out. Crack don't kill all addicts, but their bodies suffering everyday because of it.

    Here's what I don't understand sometimes...why is it when someone dies people look at you crazy when you mention some not so nice moments in their life...it happened...if someone is a cold blooded murderer when they die it doesn't change the fact they were a cold blooded murderer...Whitney was a crack addict, her passing doesn't null and void her actions on Being Bobby Brown nor when she looked like a skeleton at the MJ Tribute years ago or when she was on that "crack is wack, show me the receipts" ish with Diane Sawyer

    Same thing ma'am. We all know how some foods are not good for us and what it can lead to, but its so good we take our chances, or use the excuse "I've been eating it all these years and nothing has happen". We all know what effects smoking can have on us and how it can lead to death, but yet there are so many smokers out there. No different than crack, we know what it can do to use, but yet so many turn to it anyways.

    Really, who cares about Ray J? The honest truth is that Whitney liked him because they were getting it in. While Im really saddened by her death, people need to keep it 100. Whitney was a grown ass woman who had control of her life at one point and made bad decisions with it. Makes no sense to come for Ray J. Whitney had issues with her mother and father that profoundly affected her life. She never got over it. I just pray that Bk can find some peace.

    Among the pills ... ibuprofen (painkiller), Xanax (anti-depressant), Midol (for menstrual cramps), amoxicillin (for treating bacterial infections) ... and more.

    We're told the amoxicillin was prescribed recently because Whitney had been suffering from a sore throat.

    We're told some of the pills were old ... some issued in 2011 ... but some of the bottles were from 2012. We're told the bottles that were recovered at the scene did not contain a lot of pills.

    Sources tell us ... some of the prescriptions were filled at the infamous Mickey Fine pharmacy in Beverly Hills ... where Michael Jackson had numerous prescriptions filled for Demerol and other drugs.

    Law enforcement sources tell us ... it's possible Whitney suffered a heart attack caused by an adverse reaction to her medication, but it is simply too early to make an official call on the cause of death.

Whitney was alot of people's meal ticket so they would never tell her no, she was a drug addict and no one could make her do anything she did it because she wanted to. She said it best, she was her worst enemy. Anybody that watched Being Bobby Brown saw what kind of distructive life she was leading. Also, please stop blaming BB for her downward spiral, they were both addicts and they fed off of each other. AGain its sad that she couldnt live for her daughter and be there for her but addicts only thing about themselves and their next fix. RIP Whitney...

    1. RIP Whitney Houston... Its a shame that she passed like that. Great talent
    2. I saw pics of the kid... looks like dad and mom to me dont care what anyone else says... If you cant see Jay and Bey in that kid then you might have issues...

    Grammys
    Adele is the shait.. nuff said
    LL Cool J.... Eh
    Nikki Minaj scared the living shait out of me... but I got it.
    The Tribute to Whitney was cool... Not really enough time to pull something off too big... JHud did well.

    Also I like to thank Chris Brown for reenacting the game Q-Bert.... all that jumping around on those blocks brought up some nostalgia

    Sandra I truly think you were attacked by the way you were saying things. You said Ray J killed Whitney because he was dragging her to Grammy parties. Sandra you have said some outlandish crazy ish but some of the things you were saying this weekend on twitter was not only crazy but disappointing as well

    --------------------------------
    yeah Sandra I was really tripping off of some of your tweets this weekend. I have got used to what you say about people, but some of your comments I was just floored....

    Sandra ain't said nothing regular everyday folks ain't said. She just gets zoomed in upon because she runs a blog. Pookie mama and Ray Ray dem who sold the crack to Whitney back when tweeted the same thing and nobody wished death to them. It is truly a double standard... glad I'm just a regular ole somebody.

    :waves: Good Day to SR Family - Death is hard to handle and when it's sudden and under these types of circumstances their need to be scape goat. In my eyes Ray J is not a person that one would look to guidance. Whitney was a grown 48 year old woman who made 1 too many bad decisions. It's unfortunate that she was hanging out with Ray J. My own personal belief is that God gives us but so many chances before he take us home to be with him.

    Its all sad, the demons people have are sometimes to strong to overcome and if you have yes people around you 24 hrs a day then they become your demons. Whitney was alot of people’s meal ticket so they would never tell her no, she was a drug addict and no one could make her do anything she did it because she wanted to. She said it best, she was her worst enemy. Anybody that watched Being Bobby Brown saw what kind of distructive life she was leading. Also, please stop blaming BB for her downward spiral, they were both addicts and they fed off of each other. AGain its sad that she couldnt live for her daughter and be there for her but addicts only thing about themselves and their next fix. RIP Whitney…

    But she wasn't with RayJ when those pics of her in the black dress were taken.

  • GoldenGurl

    WHITNEY'S VOICE WAS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIMES! NOT FOCUSING ON THE NEG (CUZ WE ALL HAVE THEM), SHE WAS THE BEST AT WHAT SHE DID. RIP(IN PARADISE) NIPPY. SHE HAS LEFT US WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF CLASSIC MUSIC THAT WILL BE ENJOYED BY GENERATION FOR YEARS TO COME. LOVE YOU WHITNEY!!!

  • Nthabi

    Sorry, but I just don't understand people who on the one hand acknowledge that addiction is a disease, but on the other - think an addict ("grown arse woman") is responsible for their own behavior! I mean, pick one and run with it!

    An addict is not only sick but also completely impaired to be in a position to make sound decisions and judgements for themselves. The disease of addiction directly affects the BRAIN functions and capabilities.

    Whitney, as a sick woman suffering from the disease of addiction, was never in a position to make sound judgements for herself. Her disease of addiction meant that she was impaired, mentally and was not of sound mind.

    Therefore, those saying that she was a grown woman and strong-willed and therefore responsible to do whatever she wished, CLEARLY do NOT understand the disease of addiction! She may have been an adult, and that is where your accuracy end as far as this sick woman. She was NEVER in a position, as a sick woman with impaired judgement caused by the disease of addiction, to be either fully cognizant or responsible to make sound decisions.

    Sandra is therefore correct to suggest that those around her, including Ray J. - fully understanding her sickness and hence, vulnerability - had NO BUSINESS further exposing her to the things, places and events that they did.

    At the end of the day, a true and caring friend OR family member, knnowing that you are in essence, MENTALLY ILL - regardless of your age OR strong personality - etc ... has NO BUSINESS ignoring THAT and treating you as though you were a normal and healthy, thriving person. They are responsible to ensure that they protect you from what could potentially harm you, and instead support and direct you more towards getting better!

    Anyway, she will remain an icon and her gift will live on and continue to bless many, many people for a long, long time.

    Thank you, Whitney, for sharing yourself with us, and may your soul truly Rest In Peace.
