Whitney Houston

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

Our sources tell us 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. 

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

Our sources say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but BH PD detectives have begun a full investigation. We’re told she was ID’ed by family and friends.

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

Whitney Houston you will be missed.
