Gory Details Revealed in Final Coroner’s Report on Whitney Houston

The final report on Whitney Houston’s death has been released – and it gives an even more extensive picture of how the pop icon died and what was found at the death scene. As the L.A. County Department of Coroner previously announced, Houston accidentally drowned on February 11 “due to, or as a consequence of” the effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use. The final coroner’s report, obtained Wednesday by “Extra,” states that Houston was discovered by her personal assistant face down in “extremely hot water,” indicated by scalding on Houston’s back. The report also detailed how police found a small spoon with a “white crystal like substance,” in the bathroom, and “white powdery substance” on the counter, along with a portable mirror with traces of the same powder on it. There was an open bottle of champagne in the bedroom, as well as a dozen prescription bottles, including three empty bottles of alprazolam (Xanax), the anti-inflammatory Prednisone, and antibiotics. The Beverly Hills Police Department wrote in their final report that Whitney had a “bloody purge” coming out of her nose, as well as minor abrasions on her face, arms and legs. A possible old needle puncture wound on Houston’s inner left elbow was also found. Toxicology testing turned up cocaine, Benadryl, the muscle relaxant Flexeril, marijuana, Xanax, cocaethylene (produced when cocaine mixes with alcohol) and benzoylecgonin (a primary metabolite of cocaine). Mild emphysema, pulmonary edema and leiomyomas (benign tumors) in her uterus were also detected.

Her overall body was clinically described as “well built, muscular and fairly well nourished.

NBA player Kris Humphries showed off his fine physique in a crazy hot photo shoot for WestEast magazine — and Hollywoodlife.com got a first look! Humphries, 27, was apparently interested in doing the shoot because of the James Bond action/hero theme. An insider told the website, “He thought it would be a fun thing to do. He’s a guy, so the action figure theme was appealing. Plus, he wanted to help out his friend, stylist Derek Warburton, who is WestEast’s fashion director.” And no, Kris did not do this shoot as some sort of a revenge tactic on his soon-to-be ex, Kim Kardashian, who recently stripped for her own lingerie line at Sears.”The allegations that he’s seeking revenge with this photo shoot are false and we remain adamant that personal issues will be handled by his legal team and not in the media,” Humphries’ rep told Hollywoodlife.co
