Whitney Houston Dead At 48

Whitney Houston died Saturday … a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

Other sources told TMZ a member of Whitney’s entourage found her in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel … and called hotel security — who then dialed 911. When paramedics arrived Houston was found unresponsive.

Police arrived to the scene within minutes and fire was already there on an unrelated call. According to other sources, paramedics performed CPR but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.

Other  sources say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but BH PD detectives have begun a full investigation.

The singer famously battled drug addiction for years.

Houston was seen out in Hollywood Thursday night for a Grammy party … and she did not look well. She even briefly took the mic and performed a song while she was there — what would become her last performance.
