New Details Surrounding Whitney Houston's Death

UPDATE 9:40PM - Clive Davis arrives at the Beverly Hilton.

The crime scene investigation surrounding Whitney Houston's death is still going on, on the fourth floor and Whitney's body is still present. She was reportedly found in the bathtub and prescription drugs were present.

Whitney was reportedly getting ready for Clive’s party in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton when her body was discovered. Sources at the hotel say she was partying heavily last night with a group of friends. “Whitney and her friends were in the bar for a time and the group was drinking and very loud,” reports TMZ.

The Grammy awards are still set to take place tomorrow, and will most likely include a last minute tribute to the late star. The Recording Academy released a statement about her death saying:

“Six-time GRAMMY(r) winner Whitney Houston was one of the world's greatest pop singers of all time who leaves behind a robust musical soundtrack spanning the past three decades. Her powerful voice graced many memorable and award-winning songs. A light has been dimmed in our music community today, and we extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, fans and all who have been touched by her beautiful voice.”

Dionne Warwick and Cissy Houston claim to have spoken to Whitney earlier today and said she seemed just fine. Whitney’s mother Cissy spoke to Whitney about 20 minutes before she announced dead, and says Whitney seemed fine. As Hollyscoop previously reported, Whitney was in her hotel room getting ready for the Clive Davis party.
