However, Whitney's publicist has claimed that the star's home is not in any danger of mortgage foreclosure and she is up to date with all payments.
Houston, who has overcome crack cocaine addiction, has allegedly spent all of her fortune, including a reported $100million record deal.
She is being financially supported by her record label Arista, which has given her an advance payment on her next album, according to reports.

The end of a long night: Whitney looked worse for wear as she sat in the backseat of the car

‘Whitney's fortune is gone. Music industry heavy hitters are supporting her and her label is fronting her cash against her next album, but no one knows when that will be released’ a source told Radaronline.com.
‘She might be homeless if not for people saving her. She is broke as a joke.’
Whitney - whose ex-husband is Bobby Brown - is believed to be in such a dire financial position she has even had to resort to contacting friends for small loans.

The source added: ‘She called someone to ask for $100. It is so sad. She should have Mariah Carey money, and she's flat broke.’
A spokesperson for the singer strongly denied the claims when contacted by MailOnline and said: 'That is ridiculous and not true! She stars in SPARKLE out in August which she also Exec produced. She just wrapped the film.'
In August 2001, Whitney signed the biggest record deal in music history at the time with Arista/BMG, renewing her contract with the label for $100million to deliver six new albums.
She released her last LP I Look to You in August 2009.

I always thought she'd make a comeback. Guess not....


TMZ.com

Whitney Houston was taking Xanax ... evidence she may have fallen asleep in the bathtub where she died ... TMZ has learned.

Family members of Whitney tell us the singer had a prescription for the drug, which is commonly used to treat anxiety and depression.

We told you yesterday ... the night before Whitney died, she had been drinking a lot. Xanax mixed with alcohol can cause severe sedation, which could cause someone to fall asleep in a bathtub.

As TMZ first reported, Whitney was found in the bathtub and removed before EMTs arrived. The L.A. County Coroner will perform an autopsy -- possibly today -- to determine if Whitney died from drowning, and OD or other causes.

As we previously reported, Beverly Hills cops obtained a search warrant and found various prescription bottles -- but, as far as we know, no illicit drugs.

Doesn't seem to matter these days, does it? HUGE "prescription" drug problem going on now.....

When my husband told me last night that she had died, I had *just* finished looking at the photos taken at the Grammy party. So so sad.

I wouldn't be surprised if she had been using coke or smoking crack at the Kelly Price party. There were reports that she was really agitated and erratic. Maybe she was still using coke but needed the Xanax to come down for the Clive Davis party. I think she was supposed to perform. So sad

popbitch How the music industry works part 25 Before she was introduced to Clive Davis, CBS Records were interested in signing a 17 year-old Whitney Houston. She performed for two of their most senior execs. They declined to sign her. The exact verdict? "Pretty girl. Can't sing."
