Whitney Houston died at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday and RadarOnline.com has photos of the scene where the iconic star spent her final days.
The performer was staying on the fourth floor of the luxury hotel, which is where her body was found unresponsive yesterday afternoon after a 911 call was placed by hotel security at 3:43 p.m.
The Los Angeles Coroner finally removed Whitney’s body nine hours later, after spending several hours at the scene to begin the investigation into exactly what caused the I Will Always Love You singer’s death.
Her remains were transported to the morgue where an autopsy is expected to be performed within the next 48 hours.
But while Whitney’s body lay dead in the room, the annual pre-Grammys party hosted by her mentor Clive Davis went ahead as scheduled downstairs with stars like Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian and Gladys Knight in attendance.
Fans arrived to pay their final respects to the star and remembered her as they lay candles and flowers on pavement outside the hotel.
They sang songs and gathered around the makeshift memorial to their idol.
Whitney’s ex-husband Bobby Brown also had a “the show must go on” attitude and performed with his group New Edition in Memphis, but was said to be overcome with emotion.
“First of all, I want to tell you that I love you all. Second, I would like to say, I love you Whitney. The hardest thing for me to do is to come on this stage,” he told the crowd. The couple split in 2006 after 14 years of marriage and one child together.
Her family, including daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, and cousin Dionne Warwick, paid their last respects to the fallen star late last night in the hotel room where her body lay.
As RadarOnline exclusively reported, law enforcement sources told us that a “a plethora of sedatives including Lorazepam, Valium, Xanax, and a sleeping medication” was found in Whitney’s room.
Jennifer Hudson has been lined up to pay tribute to Whitney at the Grammy Award show on Sunday evening.
