Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48, her publicist Kristen Foster confirmed on Saturday, February 11. Details surrounding her death are still scarce because Foster did not say the cause and the location of her death.
TMZ's sources however said that she died died at the Beverly Hilton hotel because a police crime lab vehicle was seen outside the hotel. On Thursday, February 9, she was spotted looking worse for wear in Hollywood, California after enjoying a party with friends. According to Daily Mail, "Whitney had what is believed to be blood dripping down her leg and scratches on her wrist and she had to be escorted from the club to her car by a few people."
Houston reigned the mid 1980s and late 1990s with her golden voice and her acting role in "The Bodyguard". But her life spiraled down after she used drugs and got into tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown.
Fellow stars have poured in their condolences on Twitter. "This can't be true... One of my idols gone?? No. This is so unbelievably sad...," Demi Lovato tweeted. Ryan Seacrest wrote, "At Grammys rehearsal hearing Whitney Houston has passed away at 48. Everyone here is absolutely stunned."
