Reportedly, Whitney Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston, is beside herself with grief over news that cocaine use was a contributing factor to Whitney’s demise. According to Hollywood Life:
“A friend of Whitney’s family tells us, ‘Cissy is beside herself with grief. She’s devastated by the news that cocaine was found in Whitney’s system. She was under the impression that Whitney had stopped using the drug.’
Adds the source, ‘She always felt that if anything tragic were to happen to Whitney it would be because of cocaine.’
The L.A. County Coroner released Whitney’s autopsy results earlier today, citing ‘accidental drowning’ as the reason she passed, and noting that heart disease and cocaine use were factors as well. That said, there were no traces of cocaine in the room where she died.
Our thoughts and well wishes are with Whitney’s family as they go through this tragic time.”
