New claims have suggested Whitney Houston was seen “drinking considerably” for at least two mornings in the week before her death on Saturday.
It is claimed that Whitney Houston, who was just 48 when she died, was seen ordering drinks at the bar at the Beverly Hilton Hotel before 10:00 a.m. on both Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
A source revealed to CNN that guests in Beverly Hilton hotel had heard Whitney Houston complaining to the bartender about her drinks being “watered down” or containing “too much ice”.
The source added that some of the guests later complained about Whitney Houston’s “erratic” behavior, saying that her disheveled appearance and odd clothing choice led to her appearing intoxicated.

However, Whitney Houston’s close friend Kelly Price, with whom the singer was seen partying just two days before her death, insisted she noticed no erratic behavior when the pair spent time together at the Tru Hollywood nightclub on Thursday night.
Kelly Price said in an interview on ITV’s Daybreak this morning: “I don’t know anything about her not being in a great frame of mind. I’ve said so many times that she came and she was happy and she beat me to my own party.
“She was happy to pose for the press, she was waiting on me when I got there and we had a great time that night.
“She was so happy and so full of life and she brought so much joy into the building that night – she brought an energy into the entire event that I’m so glad we were all able to experience that.”
Kelly Price added that she was so shocked when she was first told of Whitney Houston’s passing that she had hoped it was a hoax.
Kelly Price said: “I was shocked, very hurt, I’m still very hurt. In my heart and in my mind I was hoping it was a crazy internet hoax. As much as I hate them, I would have given anything for it to be a hoax that time.
“I haven’t fully been able to accept it. I need to find a way to have some closure for myself.
“I think going through the process of the Grammy Awards, I had to push my way through it. But in the last 24 hours it has really hit me.”
Meanwhile, plans to broadcast Whitney Houston’s funeral live on television and online have been revealed.
After it was confirmed the funeral will take place on Saturday at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, NJ, Whitney Houston’s publicist Kristen Foster announced The AP are allowed to film the service and stream it on their website, with some other broadcasters also taking the footage via a satellite.
The picture of the bathtub at Beverly Hilton hotel, where Whitney Houston was found dead on Saturday afternoon, has been released to media.

Although Whitney Houston was declared dead last weekend, the Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party still went ahead in the same hotel.
Whitney Houston was due to perform at the bash and while many celebrities including Britney Spears were in attendance, Sharon Osbourne opted not to go out of respect for the fallen star.
Sharon Osbourne said: “I do not know how people could have gone to the party knowing that Whitney was still in that building dead. And just the sorrow, I just couldn’t.
“There was no way I could go drink and eat and be social. For me, it wasn’t right.”
According to RadarOnline.com her manager, Clive Davis angered family members when he announced that he would be going ahead with his party at the hotel.
RadarOnline claim that a source said: “The mood in the suite was just that of pure shock. Bobbi Kristina was absolutely inconsolable, she was rocking back and forth on the couch, crying hysterically.”
They added: “Clive was already dressed in his tux and most of Whitney’s family was already dressed for the party. There wasn’t any mention of the party proceeding or being canceled by Clive. He told Whitney’s family that they could stay in his suite as long as they needed to, and then after about 45 minutes with them, he left.”
Clive Davis’ spokesperson released a statement to RadarOnline denouncing the claims and said: “This story is categorically false. This supposed in-person meeting never took place and Mr. Davis never left the main floor of the hotel.”
Meanwhile, it was today announced that Whitney Houston funeral will take place on Saturday in New Jersey at her childhood church with the general public unable to attend the 300 invited guests.
The funeral will take place at 12:00 p.m. EST, in Newark’s New Hope Baptist Church.
Detroit based pastor and former recording artist Marvin Winans will deliver the eulogy at the funeral service and he described her death as the same as losing a sibling.

A shocking picture of Whitney Houston’s bathroom took at her home in Atlanta, Georgia, shows how the star’s life spiraled into chaos at the height of her crack addiction.
The deplorable image, shot in 2006, shows a room littered with drug paraphernalia, including a crack-smoking pipe and spoons covered in white powder.
Despite her fame and wealth, Whitney Houston had descended into squalor, her sister in law Tina Brown, who took the photo, revealed at the time.
Drug paraphernalia can be seen in the room, where Whitney Houston holed up for days, according to Tina Brown, the sister of the singer’s husband Bobby Brown.
Whitney Houston, 48, smoked as much as an “eight-ball” (1/8 of an ounce) of crack at a go, blending it with marijuana inside in a cigar wrapper, Tina Brown, also a self-confessed former addict, told the National Enquirer.
Tina Brown said: “The truth needs to come out. Whitney won’t stay off the drugs. It’s every single day. It’s so ugly. Everyone is so scared she is going to overdose.”

The drugs made Whitney Houston so paranoid she saw evil apparitions and once drilled a spy hole in her bathroom to keep an eye out for demons, Tina Brown claimed.
Whitney Houston at one time claimed she didn’t do crack, telling Diane Sawyer in 2002 that she made too much money to ever take the street drug. “Crack is whack,” she famously declared.
But her stunning looks later seemed to be ravaged by her habit.
And although Whitney Houston subsequently got clean, recording a comeback album in 2009, the years of abusing her body also took their toll on her voice.
At her comeback tour in Australia in 2010, Whitney Houston shocked fans when she had to take a 20 minute break to rest her voice.
Whitney Houston was set to make a return to the big screen later this year having filmed Sparkle, due to hit cinemas August 10. But the pressure to succeed was overwhelming.
“Her voice was ruined, and her comeback wasn’t what it was supposed to be, because her voice wasn’t what it used to be,” a friend told People.
Whitney Houston “was in pain from all the pressure she was facing”, the source said.
“I know from when she was recording her most recent album – her comeback album (I Look to You in 2009) – her voice was shot. That bothered her.”
“In the music industry, you’re only as good as your last hit, even if you are Whitney Houston. Then she had people gossiping about her … It was a lot to deal with.”
Whitney Houston had blown a massive fortune, earned over decades of royalties and concert tours on her drug habit and was “broke as a joke”, it was last week claimed.
“Whitney’s fortune is gone,” a source told Radar last week.
“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.”
“She might be homeless if not for people saving her. She is broke as a joke.”
The legendary singer had been reduced to begging friends for help.
“She called someone to ask for $100,” the source said.
“It is so sad. She should have Mariah Carey money, and she’s flat broke.”
Whitney Houston, 48, was nearly ejected from the Delta Airlines flight in Atlanta after refusing to fasten her seatbelt despite being asked by a steward, celebrity website TMZ reported.

Whitney Houston eventually relented, although she left it to a steward to fasten her up, and the plane was then cleared for takeoff.

Whitney Houston has been struggling since 2009 to make a comeback after years away from the spotlight due to drug addiction.
According to some critics, the quality of her voice has been affected by the drug use.
In an interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Whitney Houston admitted she used to take cocaine with marijuana.
The singer also admitted her drug use became “heavy” after the 1992 film The Bodyguard.
Whitney Houston said: “You put your marijuana, you lace it, you roll it up and you smoke it… it’s like heroin and cocaine speedballing, but you level it off, with marijuana.”
She finally stopped drug use in 2006, when she checked into rehab with the support of her mother Cissy Houston and Clive.
Whitney Houston then found the courage to leave ex-husband Bobby Brown, with whom she shared a rocky relationship.
After that moment, she has struggled to thrill fans during her comeback Nothing But Love tour, and last year many fans demanded refunds after seeing her shows, claiming she was “wheezing” her way through songs.
Whitney Houston was forced to cancel her opening performance in Manchester after claiming she had caught a chest infection.
The singer subsequent appearances in UK, Birmingham and London, were heavily criticized with some fans demanding their money back.
