Whitney Houston’s Death Accidental, Brother-in-Law Insists, Few Prescriptions Found in Room
As the investigation into the sudden death of Whitney Houston continues, it has been reported that very few medications were found in the singer’s hotel room- mostly necessary prescriptions or OTC painkillers, as well as the anti-anxiety medication Xanax.
And while fellow chanteuse Celine Dion went on record blaming drugs and “bad” influences for taking Houston from her family and “dreams,” the troubled singer’s brother-in-law insists that the her death had to have been an accident, because she never would have chosen to leave daughter Bobbi Kristina. (Bobbi Kristina has been taken to the hospital at least twice since her mother’s death, and was also reportedly arguing with cops outside the hotel room in which Houston died, demanding to see her mother’s body.)
But as speculation over a fatal drug problem continues, the brother-in-law of Houston, Billy Watson, told ABC that he is certain Houston never intended to die that night, and that her death must have been an accident. He says:
“Oh, no, this is accidental… She wouldn’t have left her daughter like that. She wouldn’t have done that to her daughter.”
Houston has unfortunately been linked with drug abuse in the past decade, the Los Angeles coroner called a press conference and insisted that Houston did not have many medications at all when she died:
“Los Angeles assistant chief coroner Ed Winter maintained at a news conference today that officials do not know the 48-year-old singer’s cause of death. He confirmed to ABC News’ L.A. affiliate KABC that officials found prescription bottles in Houston’s hotel room, but said there wasn’t anything “alarming” or “out of the ordinary” about them.
They were all “pretty normal” prescriptions, Winter said, adding, “I have more prescriptions than what was found in her [Houston's] room.”
As of yet, no plans have been announced for Houston’s funeral.
