We're choosing to take this news with a grain of salt. While Whitney Houston did have a sordid past plagued with many addictions, we just don't want to think about the possibility of her harming herself to the point of her death.
At least not yet anyway.
According to new reports, though she claimed to be living the sober life for most of 2011, Whitney allegedly was bingeing on alcohol, pills and worst of all cocaine in the months leading up to her death. Calling the last three months of her life "truly tragic," sources close to the fallen diva swear she "was as bad as she ever was," doing real harm to herself
One eyewitness shares an account from the Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood at the beginning of the year. According to this source:
"Whitney got buck-wild. She drank cognac and champagne and seemed completely out of it from the moment she arrived until the moment she left, at 2:30 a.m. PST. "
The pAArtying didn't start there as in the following weeks, she was spotted all over L.A., drinking all afternoon at the Beverly Wilshire, and sometimes, she would teeter between being totally "manic" to completely "unconscious."
It's so sad to look back to the Whitney of the early 90s and then think of this Whitney. She had so much light, so much love, so much talent to share. A waste of all those things is the only way to describe her passing, made worse by the fact that it might have been preventable.
