TMZ, Celine Dion Weigh In On The Cause Of Whitney Houston’s Death

An official autopsy report could take up to eight weeks but, according to TMZ, pop icon Whitney Houston died from a drug overdose and not from drowning in her hotel room tub. The celebrity site also claims that multiple prescription bottles were recovered from Houston’s hotel room—including ones for anti-anxiety drugs Xanax, Valium and Lorazepam—but that there were not many pills left in the bottles.

But Celine Dion didn’t wait for no official report to weigh in on Whitney’s death: Today on Good Morning America, the chest-thumping Canadian siren making some fairly bold statements accusing Houston of being a bad mother and succumbing to negative influences.

* “[Drugs] took over her dreams. It took over love and motherhood. When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse—to get into drugs like that, is it because of the stress and bad influences? What happens when you have everything?

* “Motherhood—you have the responsibilities of a mother. And something happens and it destroys everything. There’s something that happens and I don’t understand, that’s why I’m so scared. I’m scared of show business. I’m scared of drugs. I’m scared of hanging out. And that’s why I don’t do show business and parties… We have to be afraid.”

So, what do you think: Is Celine allowed to assert her maternal side or should she have held her tongue so soon after this tragedy?
