Music Legend Whitney Houston died from drowning.
Coroner reports released Thursday revealed that the troubled starlet had cocaine in her system and her cause of death was drowning. The release of the toxicology report ends months of speculation as to what actually killed the singer after she was found unresponsive in her bathtub by her staff at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, February 11, the day before the Grammys.
In a statement to The Associated Press, Houston’s sister-in-law and manager wrote, “We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure."
These revelations are a devastating reality to the hardships that had haunted the late singer in that last decade of her life. Her tumultuous lifestyle and marriage was played out in the press and on reality TV as she joined her former husband, Bobby Brown, on the now defunct Bravo show, Being Bobby Brown.
Although many had vouched for the singer and praised her apparent recovery from drug use, as well as lauding her comeback to the stage, the world was shocked when the news was revealed that Whitney Houston had died at age 48, the night before the music industry’s biggest awards celebration.
The release of these reports can now lay to rest the mysteries surrounding her sudden passing, as fans continue to commemorate Houston across the web.
It is in her legacy, that we can remember the true beauty and talent that was Whitney Houston.
