Whitney Houston, arguably one of the most legendary top recording artists of our time, was found dead today at age 48. One of the original ‘divas’, Houston struggled with a much publicized drug addiction for the last 20 years. The pop princess was married to former ‘New Edition’ member, Bobby Brown, for 14 years, their marriage ended in 2006. She had a movie set to be released this year, ‘Sparkle’, which ironically cast the singer as part of family of entertainers who were dealing with the ravages of fame and drugs.
She is survived by her daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18. Houston is said to have died in her hotel room, on the 4th floor of the Los Angeles Hilton where she was staying for pre-Grammy events. The cause of death has yet to be determined. Houston’s untimely death comes on the eve of the Grammys which airs tomorrow night.
Recent reports rumored Houston flat broke last month, according to a source cited by Forbes.com. Her publicist denied the claim.
