The details in the final coroner’s report on Whitney Houston’s death spell out the nasty effects of the late singer’s cocaine use. She was found face down in the bathtub with a “bloody purge coming from her nose” the report states, adding that damage to her septum also indicated her drug habit. Among the evidence in her hotel room were “a small spoon with a white crystal-like substance in it and a rolled up piece of white paper” on a counter and “remnants of a white powdery substance, and a portable mirror on a base” in a drawer.
According to TMZ, Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston, was devastated by the report and cried hysterically when she heard of its findings. Understandably, she worries that Whitney will be remembered for the circumstances of her death rather than her musical legacy.
“I know I did the best I could,” Cissy said in a recent TV interview. “I don’t blame myself. I know I did the best I could for everything. I’m very proud of my daughter. She accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here … she was a very wonderful person.”
