By Claire Rutter On February 21, 2012
Whitney Houston's Funeral Footage Was Sold For Troubled Bobbi Kristina
Video footage to benefit daughter...

 ::snipping2::
The 'Jesus Loves Me' singer's family made an 'undercover deal' with the media to access the four-hour service that was held in New Jersey on Saturday (February 18).

The live feed was going to be set up on The AP for several sites, but they were made to cancel the plan after just 24 hours.

A family representative for Whitney has now confirmed to TMZ that they have "agreed to license footage to several media outlets" but only for "customary fees" and this will "help maximise the estate for the benefit of Bobbi Kristina".

Oscar Producers: Whitney Houston ‘Will Be Remembered’ At Sunday Ceremony
First Published: February 24, 2012 7:39 PM EST

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- With impressive movie credits that include “The Bodyguard,” “Waiting to Exhale” and “The Preacher’s Wife,” the late Whitney Houston will not be forgotten this Sunday at the 84th Academy Awards.

Access Hollywood correspondent Tim Vincent caught up with show producers Don Mischer and Brian Grazer who revealed details on the plans to remember the late superstar.

“As far as Whitney Houston is concerned, she’s acknowledged,” Grazer said on Thursday. “There’s a moment with her [in] In Memoriam. She’s an important actress and singer and artist and we will make sure that she’s in the [In] Memoriam piece.”

Whitney Houston's Will Revealed
Airdate : 3/7/2012

INSIDE EDITION has your first look at Whitney Houston's Last Will and Testament.

The 19-page document was released on Wednesday in Atlanta, Georgia where it was filed, and here are the details:

Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina gets everything: all of Houston's money, furniture, clothing, personal effects, jewelry, and cars. 

The money will be placed in a trust until Bobbi Kristina, who is now 19, turns 21. She gets more money when she turns 25 and the rest when she is 30.

Houston's beloved mom Cissy is the executor; her brother and sister-in-law are the trustees.

Houston first drafted the Will in 1993 and amended the will in April 2000 when she was still married to Bobby Brown.

Brown is mentioned in the Will but get's nothing.

The will also states if Bobbi Kristina had died before Whitney, her ex, Bobby Brown, her mother Cissy and other relatives would share the assets.

Exclusive: News Sites Are Running an Outdated Whitney Houston Will
03/08/12 12:46am
Roger Friedman

“Inside Edition” and The New York Post sparked a frenzy on Wednesday night. They ran an outdated version of Whitney Houston’s will. We have the right one, with the 2004 codicil and all the changes Houston made to the Will. It’s posted right now at  http://blogs.forbes.com/rogerfriedman/. It’s really embarrassing, too, because I posted the news of the updated Will around 7pm and the codicil exclusively a couple of hours later with a statement from Whitney’s lawyer, Kenneth Meiselas. The other news organizations also did not know that today in Atlanta, the Houston went into probate court and named Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister in law and manager, as executor. Mother Cissy Houston is now a trustee. But on the Forbes site you can read the codicil and see the statement. If the 2000 codicil had stood, Whitney’s other sister-in-law, Donna Houston, and her husband, Michael, would have been trustees and Whitney’s old lawyer, Sheldon Platt, would have been the executor.  ::snipping2::

 ::snipping2::

"There is still no resolution and there has been nothing concrete on the cause of Whitney's death, and they were hoping for that," People.com reported being told by a Houston family friend. "There were members of the family who weren't keen on the interview going down at this time."

Whitney Houston death probe nears end; toxicology results pending
March 09, 2012

Investigators of singer Whitney Houston's death have wrapped up the logistical part of their inquiry by having contacted all physicians and pharmacies with ties to Houston, and nothing so far appears criminal, sources close to the investigation said Friday.

Authorities, however, said they're still reviewing additional medical information that will be used in their final ruling on her cause of death, and Houston's toxicology report should be complete "on or around March 23rd," the sources told CNN.

Officials are still trying to speak with Houston's only child, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, before closing the case, the sources said.

Whitney Houston's cause of death revealed by L.A. coroner

The toxicology report is in.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office has determined that Whitney Houston's official cause of death is: "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use."
 ::snipping2::
The coroner's office also said the manner of death was an "accident."

However, the toxicology report adds that "Cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death. Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death."

An autopsy was conducted the day after she died. Capt. John Kades of the Los Angeles County coroner's office said at the time there was no indications of foul play and no obvious signs of trauma on Houston's body. Prescription pill bottles were found in her room, but the number of pills were "not in alarming amounts," said officials.

Coroner: Whitney Houston died from drowning, heart disease, cocaine use
Published March 22, 2012

The Los Angeles County Coroner ruled Thursday that the final cause of Whitney Houston's death was drowning, as well as from effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.

According to Chief Medical Examiner Anthony T. Hernandez's report, there was no foul play involved in the Feb. 11 death of Houston. She was found submerged in a bathtub filled with water at the Beverly Hills Hilton just hours before she was due to perform at Clive Davis' Grammy Party.

Toxicology reports found metabolites also contributed to her death. Traces of marijuana and the prescription drugs Xanax, Flexiril and over-the-counter Benadryl were also found in her system, but did not play a role.
 
The announcement Thursday ends weeks of speculation about what killed the Grammy-winning singer.
 
Several bottles of prescription medications were found in her hotel room, but coroner's officials said they weren't in excessive quantities.
 
Coroner's spokesman Craig Harvey says the results indicated Houston was a chronic cocaine user.

Whitney Houston: Police see no further criminal investigation
March 24, 2012

Beverly Hills police said the preliminary coroner's report on the death of Whitney Houston raises no issues that would require further criminal investigation.
 
Detectives from the department have been looking into the circumstances of the singer's death Feb. 11. But based on the coroner's report, Lt. Mark Rosen said the police case will be closed within a few weeks.
 
“Unless something changes in the final report, this investigation will end,” he said.

Dolly Parton 'Shattered' When 'I Will Always Love You' Played at Whitney Houston's Funeral
 In an interview with "Nightline," the singer/songwriter says she feels forever connected to Houston.
8:31 PM PDT 4/2/2012

 ::snipping2::
Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston will undoubtedly remain connected through their smash hit song “I Will Always Love You,” written by Parton and performed by Houston. But according to the country crooner, that connection runs much deeper.
 ::snipping2::
“[It] just shattered me to hear that song played under those conditions,” Parton said during an interview with ABC’s Nightline to air Wednesday. “I thought my heart was gonna stop. It just pierced me like a knife. It’s just -- I can’t explain that feeling, to think that that was so final for her, and that that was my words and my feeing -- I would forever be so connected to her.”
 ::snipping2::
“When Whitney did ‘I Will Always Love You,’ I mean look what a grand song she made out of that simple, heartfelt, you know, song… it was just amazing,” she said. “Whitney is the one who took it worldwide and really made it a household word – or song, I should say – so I’ll always be thankful to her for that.

Whitney Houston clothes, jewelry auctioned
By Alan Duke, CNN
April 2, 2012

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Bidders paid a total of $80,000 for clothes and jewelry once owned by Whitney Houston in a Beverly Hills auction that took place Saturday just blocks from where the singer died seven weeks ago.

Julien's "Hollywood Legends" auction also includes Charlie Chaplin's famous bowler hat and bamboo cane and a coat worn by Clark Gable in "Gone With the Wind."

Five dresses and three ensembles from Houston's wardrobe were originally sold in a 2007 auction ordered by a judge to settle a storage debt Houston owed to a New Jersey company.

A bustier embellished with elaborate beading, rhinestones and pearls brought $19,200 in bidding Saturday, according to the auction website. Houston wore it onstage during concerts, but lost it in the storage auction, according to Julien's.

The grey velvet gown Houston wore when she attended the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party with then-husband Bobby Brown in 1996 sold for $11,520.

The final report says Houston was discovered lying face down in about 30 centimeters of water that was over 30 degrees Celsius. Police investigators discovered a "white powdery substance" on a mirror in the bathroom, along with a small spoon containing "a crystal-like substance."

This woman's body was ravaged with burn marks and scars from years of abuse.  It's such a shame that two of the biggest icons from the 1980's (Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson) were such drug abusers.

911 call at link

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/04/11/showbiz/whitney-houston-probe/index.html

Whitney Houston death probe closed; 911 call released
By Alan Duke, CNN
April 12, 2012 -- Updated 0939 GMT (1739 HKT)

Los Angeles (CNN) -- The police investigation of Whitney Houston's death is "officially closed" with the conclusion that her death was an accidental drowning, the Beverly Hills Police Department said Wednesday.

With the case closed, police released the recording of the 911 emergency call in which a hotel security officer said the woman who called for help from Houston's room was "irate and pretty much out of it."

Investigators "found no evidence of foul play," a police statement said. "Based on the findings of our investigation and our review of the coroner's report, we have determined that this is not a criminal matter."

The Los Angeles County coroner released its autopsy report a week ago saying Houston's February 11 death was an accidental drowning with the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" as contributing factors.

The Beverly Hilton security officer did not identify Houston in the 911 call.
