Legendary singer Whitney Houston has passed away.
Though the cause of death remains unknown, the tragic news was confirmed today by the superstar’s publicist Kristen Foster. She leaves behind her 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.
Having enjoyed incredible success in the 1980s and 90s, Whitney inspired an entire generation of singers that came after her. Though she soared in her professional life, the Grammy-winner’s personal life was marked by turmoil. Married to singer Bobby Brown for 14 years, the relationship was often a tumultuous one with allegations of domestic abuse and struggles with addiction.
Our condolences go out to Whitney’s daughter, family and friends.
