In a recent alleged suicide attempt, “Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law Pat Houston was moments from taking her own life…” according to TMZ.
But of course, like most Internet dialogue today, Pat’s current Facebook status was taken completely out of context.
Sometimes you just feel like giving up on life and its many challenges. And for the first time in my life…I’m tired…and I want to finally rest. I love you guys.
Sources close to the family revealed that immediately after seeing Pat’s post, members began calling and texting, but received no answer. Consequently, they went over to Miss Houston’s house, only to find her passed out next to a bottle of painkillers and decided to dial 911.
Upon the police arrival, Pat awoke from her nap. She explained she had simply taken pain meds for her back, turned off her phone and then gone to sleep — unaware so many people were trying to reach her. She further reassured her family that she would never try to hurt herself, let alone attempt something as drastic as suicide.
Dionne Warwick Files for Bankruptcy!
In other rude-awakening news, legendary songstress Dionne Warwick has filed for bankruptcy after learning she owes over $10.2 million in taxes. Yikes, woman.
According to the “I Say a Little Prayer” singer’s publicist, Kevin Sasaki, Warwick cites fiscal management (or lack thereof) as the reason she owes so much. As stated by the Huffington Post, “Warwick filed the bankruptcy papers March 21 in New Jersey. Most of the alleged ‘negligent and gross financial mismanagement’ Warwick referenced occurred in the late ’80s through the ’90s.”
In light of the magnitude of her tax liabilities, Warwick has repeatedly attempted to offer re-payment plans and proposals to the IRS and the California Franchise Tax Board for taxes owed… These plans were not accepted, resulting in escalating interest and penalties, says Sasaki.
