RIP Whitney Houston

Grammy Award-winning singer and actress Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48. Whitney's publicist made the announcement in the early hours of this morning. The cause of her death is still unclear.

Police have confirmed the star was found on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. US website TMZ has reported that Whitney and a group of friends "partied heavily" in the hotel bar last night. Further unconfirmed reports claim her body was found in her hotel bath by a member of her entourage. The tragic news comes just hours before she was due to perform at a pre-Grammy party held by her mentor and friend, record producer Clive Davis.

Whitney's ex-husband Bobby Brown was reported to be "in and out of crying fits" after hearing the news. Bobby, 43, broke down in tears before taking to the stage with his band New Edition last night, a US website reported. The emotional singer shouted "I love you Whitney" and blew kisses to the sky during the concert, in Mississippi, US.

Rest in peace.
