Legendary singer Whitney Houston died from a heart attack induced by excessive cocaine use and heart disease today (February 11, 2012).
Whitney Houston sold over 200 million albums in her lifetime, based off of six albums, a holiday album and three movie soundtracks.
Houston was found dead in her room in the Beverly Hilton Hotel, after accidentally drowning in her bathtub, just before the 2012 Grammy Awards.
In the weeks, leading up to the anniversary of her death, Whitney Houston’s mother Sissy has been making the rounds in the media.
Cissy Houston’s promoting her new memoir “Remembering Whitney.”
Sissy Houston, 79, discusses her daughter’s severe drug dependency problem in the book.
“She started partying and she didn’t really know how to stop,” Cissy Houston said Whitney. “I used to wonder what she was doing at night, where she was.”
Comedian Joey “CoCo” Diaz, may be able to help fill in some of the blanks for Whitney Houston’s mother.
Diaz is a Cuban-American stand-up comedian who had a recurring role on the hit TV show “My Name is Earl,” in addition to appearances in movies like “The Longest Yard” and “Taxi.”
According to Joey Diaz, he was one of Whitney Houston’s biggest drug suppliers in the late 1990s.
During an interview with Joe Rogan on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Joey Diaz detailed a number of stories regarding his drug sales to Whitney Houston in Hollywood.
During the interview, Diaz recounts a number of incredible facts regarding Whitney Houston drug use.
“They would come over with $1,100, which is [their] per diem money,” Joey Diaz said. “Every day they would come over with a little white envelope and give me the per diem money and I would go…and buy 14 grams of blow take an 8 Ball out and cut it and then give it to Whitney Houston.”
According to Joey Diaz, this went on every day, for the next 40 days, as Whitney and Bobby snorted three ounces of cocaine per week.
According to Joey Diaz, the last time he saw Whitney Houston was in 1998, coincidently, after the Grammy Awards.
“I get a call on Monday morning after the Grammy’s at 9:00 in the morning,” Diaz recalled.
Shortly afterwards, the Houston’s arrived with a special guest.
“It was the manager, Whitney Houston and Ricky Martin and they’re all going, from the Grammys. That jaw, all them jaws are going jack. I bought it, brought it back to the car and that was the last time I fucking seen them.”
