Exclamation Whitney Houston's Daughter Bobbi Kristina Rushed to the Hospital

Whitney Houston's 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was just rushed to Cedears-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources ... Bobbi was taken out of the Beverly Hilton, where Whitney died yesterday, on a stretcher.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ police and fire responded to a call for a medical emergency, but would not confirm who was transported.

As TMZ first reported, Bobbi Kristina got into an angry shouting match last night with police officers outside the hotel room where her mother was found dead

Bobbi Christina is Whitney's only child from husband Bobby Brown. Houston and Brown were married in 1992 and divorced in 2007.

Story developing ...

Nice pictures but at the end it should be Saturday instead of Sunday for the day she died.

Whew! I was shocked when I saw the news. It scared me for a minute. I was thrown aback. That girl was like a big sister in my family. A former coworker of mine used to play guitar in her mom's group in the 60's and he remembers Whitney running around backstage as a young child. LOL. I will miss you, Whitney! Love you sweetie!

That does surprise me a little bit, about the prior drug use. But I was fed the same squeaky clean image of her that everyone else was when she started out.

It's hard to know why someone coming from that background would resort to drugs.

Being married to Bobby obviously didn't help, of course. What also didn't help was the fact that when they wed in the summer of 1992, her career was still white hot (and I think The Bodyguard and its soundtrack weren't released until the end of that year) and his was fading. I'm still shocked that they stayed together as long as they did.

ANYBODY can be affected by drugs, it doesn't matter where you come from, how much money you had or who you are. drugs can kill ANYBODY.

Sad but true - drugs are an equal opportunity destroyer.

Great singer, 20 years ago... but a really bad role model.
I agree, it's very unfortunate. As someone who has struggled with addiction myself, and was even told I was going to die if I didn't stop, this hits close to home. Fortunately, I had good people surrounding me, who when they found out the severity of my condition, they lied to me, and said that they no longer had access to drugs. They saved my life. Had Whitney had people like that in her life, maybe she would still be here, but being that big, even if many refused to sell them to her, she would obviously be able to get them elsewhere. The trappings of a Hollywood celebrity can be so sad. I feel the worst for her daughter, who I hear is not taking this well. She is in my prayers!!

I haven't been on the boards since Saturday. I went to bed early Saturday and woke up at 4 am Sunday. When I turned on the news I was flabbergasted. What a tragic loss. But her legacy will live on through all her wonderful music.

Default Was She Really Broke?

All of the NYC newspaper headlines I've been reading here say "From Triumph to Tragedy" and "Whitney Dies Broke".

One article hear mentioned that she had to borrow "a measly" $100.00 from friends to support herself.

Was she really this bad? I admit I don't know much about her because I didn't follow her life/career.
