According to LA Times: She was in Beverly Hills for music industry titan Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammys party Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton. During the preceding days, she made several public appearances. At times, she was said to have been acting strangely, skipping around a ballroom and doing handstands near the hotel pool. Houston reportedly greeted people with a warm smile but at times appeared disheveled in mismatched clothes and with her hair dripping wet.
On Thursday, she dropped by the rehearsals for the pre-Grammys party. A Grammy staffer said that as reporters interviewed Davis and singers Brandy and Monica, Houston was dancing just off camera to make them laugh. Grammy personnel expressed concern that she’d be caught on camera and that reporters would write about her behavior.
On Sunday morning, a bleary-eyed Ray J was briefly inside the lobby of the Beverly Hilton with three companions. The music star, who reportedly had been dating Houston off and on, had his hood up and was being consoled.
“Whitney dead,” he repeated multiple times, as one friend grabbed him by the shoulders. “Whitney dead. We all gotta live with that.”
A little later, he left the hotel in the passenger seat of a red Ferrari.
Houston’s teenage daughter was taken by paramedics from the Beverly Hilton to a nearby hospital Sunday morning. She has since been released.
SUMMARY: According to Beverly Hills Police, Houston was found under water in the bath tub. CPR was performed for 20 minutes before declaring houston was dead. Several prescription medication was found in hotel room.
