An official for the L.A. County Coroner’s Office has confirmed the cause of Whitney Houston‘s death.
Coroner Chief Craig Harvey revealed that Houston was a “chronic cocaine user”.
According to TMZ, Harvey described the cocaine level in Whitney’s system as “acute” — indicating Whitney used the drug not long before she accidentally drowned in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel last month. “Accidental drowning” is listed as Whitney’s official cause of death.
Other drugs including marijuana, Benadryl, Flexeril, and Xanax were all at or below therapeutic levels meaning these did not significantly contribute to her death.
