Roughly six weeks after her death, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office has revealed that Whitney Houston’s cause of death was drowning combined with the “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.” The famed songstress died on February 11 at the age of 48, after she was discovered underwater and unconscious in a bath at a hotel in Beverly Hills. As previously reported, sources close to the ongoing investigation of the singer’s death have now revealed “nothing suspicious” has been found to connect the circumstances of her death to any physicians or people of interest.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Houston left all of her assets to her daughter Bobbi Kristina, born from her troubled marriage to singer Bobby Brown, who gets nothing. Bobbi Kristina, who is currently 19, will receive the proceeds from all of the late singer’s money, furniture, clothing, personal effects, jewellery and cars.
