Singing superstar Whitney Houston dies at 48

Singer Whitney Houston is seen in a 2009 photo arriving for the Clive Davis pre-Grammy party in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Cause and location of her death unclear; singer was troubled by drug use

Whitney Houston passed away this afternoon, her rep has confirmed to TMZ. The Grammy-winning artist experienced some of the highest highs (six Grammys, the biggest-selling soundtrack album ever in The Bodyguard, and several record-breaking singles) and lowest lows (including drug addiction and her tumultous relationship with Bobby Brown) of any famous figure in recent memory; though she’d recently tried to revive her big-screen career with a role opposite Jordin Sparks in the remake of Sparkle (which she shot late last year), Houston was photographed in disarray while leaving a club earlier this week, sparking further rumors about her health. She was 48 years old.

She is survived by daughter Bobbi Kristina and ex-husband Bobby Brown. Theirs was a tumultuous marriage, marred by drugs, and ended in 2007. She spent time in rehabilitation for her drug problems, most recently in May 2011.
