Whitney Houston made a “brave effort” to quit drugs, smoking, and alcohol in the months preceding her 2012 death, according to Clive Davis.
In an interview with Page Six, Davis, who is now 90 years old, recalled spending time with Houston in the days preceding her passing.
In 2012, the singer was discovered comatose in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton hotel suite on the eve of the Grammy Awards.
Davis, a famed music producer and A&R executive who transformed the music industry, was one of her closest associates.
Whitney Houston and Clive Davis in 2009, three years before her death. According to him, she made a “courageous effort” to give up drugs.
I was with her 48 hours before to her passing. I never considered that she might pass away two days later.
She was demonstrating what she had accomplished in recovery.
How she quit smoking and how she eliminated nicotine from her throat.
And she wanted to begin entering the studio…
I never would have imagined, 48 hours prior to her death, that she would die away or that her life would end in such a horrible, early manner.
Davis stated, “During that time, she made a gallant effort to quit narcotics and rehabilitate herself.”
Houston was discovered lifeless in the bathtub of the Beverly Hilton hotel suite where she was staying.
The coroner found that her drowning death was the result of a heart attack.

In 2012, Houston was discovered lifeless in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton hotel suite. She tested positive for cocaine and Xanax, which contributed to heart failure and led to her death by drowning in the bathtub.

The singer had suffered with drug and alcohol addiction for years, as well as her sexuality during her turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown.
I Wanna Dance With Somebody, a new biopic about her life, released this past weekend to mixed reviews.
The film was co-produced by Davis.
He told Page Six that it ‘answers all the questions’ about Houston, a ‘once in a lifetime singer,’ that admirers may still have.
‘Whether it was her sexuality, how she reacted to any insinuation that she wasn’t singing black enough, the impact of drugs, or recording with me,’ she said.

The new movie about Houston also examines her relationship with childhood friend Robyn Crawford, with whom she had a sexual encounter.
Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina was found dead in a bathtub under similar circumstances three years after her mother’s passing. She was in a coma for six months before being declared deceased.
The friendship between Houston and her friend Robyn Crawford is one of the subjects examined in the film.
The movie implies they had an affair while Houston was a teenager. According to the film, their connection after that was plutonic, putting to rest suspicions that it may have lasted for years and during Houston’s marriage to Bobby Brown.
The film makes it quite evident that she had an affair with Robyn as a teenager, after which she decided, “This isn’t for me.”
And that, “I desire a house. I desire marriage. I desire children. I do not desire a fight to the death with my parents. It is contrary to my religion. I want you to be my closest companion Davis elucidated.
The terms were as stated. I mean, it lists men with whom she had affairs prior to Bobby.

She was unambiguously drawn to men and straight. In her marriage, it was never an issue in her adulthood. Bobby did not frustrate her sexually. She was extremely attracted, perhaps too attracted, in a relationship that was mutually self-destructive, but she was not frustrated.
Crawford has stated in the past that the two were romantically involved, but had to end their relationship due to Whitney’s burgeoning popularity.
Davis stated in a separate interview with Vanity Fair that he wanted to assist create the biography since he was unsatisfied with the singer’s prior documentaries and films.
The picture is daring and sincere, and its score soars. It truly honors Whitney as the once-in-a-lifetime artist she was,’ he said.
