That said, GossipCop reports the coroner's report indicates the official cause of death as "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use."

Ultimately her death was ruled an "accident." This prompted Whitney's sister-in-law, Patricia Houston, to issue a statement on behalf of the family: "We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure."

Rest in peace, Whitney.
