The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has today (March 22) revealed that Whitney Houston’s cause of death was drowning combined with the “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use” (via CNN).
Houston passed away on February 11 at the age of 48, after she was discovered underwater and unconscious in a bath at a hotel in Beverly Hills.
Earlier this month, details of Whitney Houston’s will were filed. Papers relating to her inheritance were unveiled in Atlanta on March 7, with the late singer leaving everything to her only child, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown. Her daughter, whose father is ex-husband Bobby Brown, will receive part of her inheritance after she turns 21, before receiving further payments at the age of 25 and 30.
