BREAKING NEWS: Whitney Houston Dead At 48

According to TMZ, Whitney Houston died this afternoon … a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

Houston won two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards during her record-breaking career. Her album “Whitney” was the first female album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts. She has sold 200 million albums world wide.

Houston holds an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities from Grambling State University in Louisiana.

Houston had one child, Bobbi Kristina, with husband Bobby Brown. Houston and Brown were married from 1992-2007.

UPDATE 1:

According to our sources, Houston died at the Beverly Hilton hotel. A police crime lab vehicle was seen outside the hotel just moments ago (see below).

UPDATE 2:

Our sources tell us a member of Whitney’s entourage found her in her oom at the Beverly Hilton hotel … and called hotel security — who then dialed 911. When paramedics arrived Houston was found unresponsive.

We’re told police arrived to the scene within minutes and fire was already there on an unrelated call. According to our sources, paramedics performed CPR but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.

Our sources say there were no signs of obvious foul play, but a BH PD detectives have begun a full investigation. We’re told she was ID’ed by family and friends.

UPDATE 3:

Beverly Hills police have sealed off the room where Whitney Houston died and will not enter until they obtain a search warrant … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us … the police want to conduct a thorough search of the hotel room, but are exercising caution by getting a warrant. We’re told one thing police are interested in is whether drugs are present in the room.

Although police could seize items in plain view, we’re told they want a top-to-bottom search of the room.

Beverly Hills cops entered the room in response to the 911 call when emergency workers gave Whitney CPR, but we’re told aside from a cursory look around the room … they conducted no search.
