Photos of Whitney Houston’s last meal – and photo from inside the bathroom released!

TMZ has gotten their hands on some pictures from inside Whitney Houston’s hotel room the day before she died.

The late singer drank alcoholic drinks shortly before she died, and it’s thought the mix of alcohol and prescription drugs is what caused her death.

TMZ has obtained photos of the room where Whitney died, showing remnants of her final meal. We’re told she ordered a hamburger, fries, a turkey sandwich and jalapenos. The picture also shows a Heineken can and an empty champagne glass. Sources say the glass had been filled with champagne.

The picture (below) was shot in the bathroom after Whitney’s body was removed and shows a tray which contained the turkey sandwich and jalapenos. Family sources say Whitney ate the burger and fries and took the turkey sandwich and jalapenos into the bathroom where she planned on eating both items after her bath.

If you look closely you can see water on the bathroom floor.

As TMZ first reported, authorities told the family Whitney may have suffered a fatal reaction from mixing drugs and alcohol, possibly leading to a heart attack.

It’s so sad!

Celine Dion publicly claims drugs killed Whitney Houston

Might be a bit early to run around claiming drugs killed Whitney Houston. Maybe we should instead wait to hear from the coroner to start making public statements? Of course the first thing I thought was that Whitney died from some sort of drug overdose (with her history it’s not a big stretch), but I wouldn’t go out and claim it publicly!

Speaking this morning via phone on Good Morning America, Celine Dion didn’t hold back when talking about Houston’s troubled life and legendary career.

“It’s just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over her dreams, her motherhood,” the French-Canadian star, 43, said of Houston, who famously fessed up in a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer about using cocaine, marijuana and pills. “When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson . . . To get into drugs like that for whatever reason–because of stress, bad influence, whatever.”

Dion lamented that her immensely talented idol, who left behind daughter Bobbi Kristina, apparently succumbed like other superstars before her. “What happens when you have everything? Love, support, motherhood…Something happens that I don’t understand. That’s why I’m scared of show business, of drugs and hanging out. That’s why I don’t go to parties!”

What do you think? Was Celine out of line – or do you agree with her?

UPDATE: Pills found in Whitney Houston’s room (not a lot), sources think she died of a heart attack.

TMZ is investigating the death of Whitney Houston, and more and more details are starting to emerge. According to their sources, multiple pill bottles were found in her hotel room, but there weren’t many pills found.

Among the pills found at the scene were … ibuprofen (painkiller), Xanax (anti-depressant), Midol (for menstrual cramps), amoxicillin (for treating bacterial infections) … and more.

Here’s more from TMZ:

We’re told the amoxicillin was prescribed recently because Whitney had been suffering from a sore throat.

We’re told some of the pills were old … some issued in 2011 … but some of the bottles were from 2012. We’re told the bottles that were recovered at the scene did not contain a lot of pills.

Sources tell us … some of the prescriptions were filled at the infamous Mickey Fine pharmacy in Beverly Hills … where Michael Jackson had numerous prescriptions filled for Demerol and other drugs.

Law enforcement sources tell us … it’s possible Whitney suffered a heart attack caused by an adverse reaction to her medication, but it is simply too early to make an official call on the cause of death.

We’re told the L.A. Coroner’s Office has removed the hold on Whitney’s body … which means her family can now have Whitney transported back to Atlanta, where the singer will be laid to rest.

It’s looking like Whitney did NOT drowned. Coroner’s have concluded that there wasn’t enough water in her lungs to lead to that conclusion. TMZ’s sources believe Whitney died from a mixture of Xanax and other prescription drugs – mixed with alcohol.

Update on Bobbi Kristina, Whitney’s daughter. Sadly, she’s been hospitalized twice since her mother died, and family members fear she’s suicidal.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her and Bobbi Brown. Unbelievably heartbreaking.

Whitney Houston cause of death determined!

Coroner’s have apparently come up with a cause of death for singer Whitney Houston, but the results are on lockdown. Officials say they will not release any information on the autopsy they performed on Sunday at the request of police detectives investigating her death.

Whitney was found dead in the bathroom of her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday afternoon. According to the coroner, what he has released is that there were no obvious signs of trauma on Houston’s body, but officials weren’t ruling out any causes of death until they’ve seen the results of the toxicology tests.

Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen said more details may be released today, but that will depend on whether or not detectives are comfortable releasing more information.

Here’s what we know so far.

Houston had been at rehearsals for the Clive Davis concert on Thursday, coaching singers Brandy and Monica, according to a person who was at the event but was not authorized to speak publicly about it.

The person said Houston looked disheveled, was sweating profusely and liquor and cigarettes could be smelled on her breath. It was the latest of countless stories about the decline of a uniquely gifted and beautiful artist, once the golden girl of the music industry.

The Rev. Al Sharpton remembered Houston while preaching Sunday morning at the Second Baptist Church in Los Angeles.

“Yes, she had an outstanding range,” he said. “Yes, she could hit notes no one else could reach. But what made her different was she was born and bred in the bosom of the black church.”

The congregation applauded and answered him with shouts of “Amen” and “Tell it!”

“A lot of artists can hit notes but they don’t hit us. Say words but they have no meaning. Have gifts and talent but no anointing. Something about Whitney that would reach in you and make you feel,” Sharpton said.

She was found unresponsive in her bathtub around 3:00, and was pronounced dead shortly before 4:00PM.

So unbelievably sad. RIP

Here are some of the last photos taken of Whitney. She was spotted leaving her doctor’s office on February 2nd.

Whitney Houston Found Dead At The Age Of 48

Singer Whitney Houston was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday morning.  Paramedics were already at the hotel and got to her in record time, but weren’t able to revive her. According to TMZ, Whitney was found in her bathtub and some were speculating that she drowned.  However, the family was reportedly told that the cause of death was prescription drugs, not drowning.  The toxicology reports are pending.

Whitney is survived by one child – daughter Bobbi Kristina with ex-husband Bobby Brown.  Bobbi Kristina has been admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital after suffering a “complete breakdown” over her mother’s death.
