    Singer Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48. Her publicist confirmed the news on Saturday, Feb. 11. Houston's drug problems were well-known and several sources indicate that she was found submerged in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel where she was a guest and that several sedatives and substances were found in her room.

    Houston was married to Bobby Brown from 1992, divorcing him in 2007. They have a daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 18. She was rushed to the hospital twice in the wake of her mother's death, reportedly due to the fact that she was mixing pills and alcohol to cope. How sad. Brown also broke down while performing (he was on tour) upon hearing news of his ex-wife's death.

    Her family issued a statement yesterday, which read as follows:

    "We're devastated by the loss of our beloved Whitney. This is an unimaginable tragedy and we will miss her terribly. We appreciate the outpouring of love and support from her fans and friends."

    What a bum out. Whit had such a gorgeous voice.
