MSNBC reported that “Conflicting accounts emerged Saturday about how Whitney Houston was found dead. Rapper Ray J, through his publicist, denied an earlier report from a close friend who said he found her dead. The cause of death and where she died were not immediately known.”
Houston’s website reported that the singer had long struggled with addiction.
“Her body of work includes seven straight Billboard No. 1 hits in the 1980s, including “Saving All My Love for You,” “Greatest Love of All” and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go.” Billboard puts her soundtrack to the movie “The Bodyguard” as one of the top 10 biggest-selling albums of all time. She also starred in the film,” reported MSNBC.
The report goes on: “The daughter of singer Cissy Houston, Whitney was born on August 9, 1963, in Newark, New Jersey. Famed music producer Clive Davis reportedly spotted Houston 20 years later in a New York nightclub, signing her on the spot, according to her website.
