The singer Whitney Houston has been found dead, aged 48.
Houston was at pre-Grammy’s party (hosted by Clive Davis her mentor) in Beverley Hills in Los Angeles, when she was found dead in her hotel room bath, reportedly under the water.
The singer had very public battles with drink and drugs over years and her abusive marriage with Bobby Brown.
Pictures released of her in 2006, showed her looking thin and drug addled in a hotel room surrounded by drug paraphernalia.
She managed something of a comeback after going on the chat show circut to talk about her drugs battles.
