Whitney Houston‘s sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston gave her family a scare yesterday when they thought she had taken her own life.
The panic started because of a post that Pat placed on her personal Facebook page, “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.”
Several family member saw this and immediately tried to contact her. When the calls went unanswered they went to her home and found her lying unconscious next to a bottle of pills.
Fearing the worst, they called 911 for help. Pat woke up when the police arrived and explained that this was all a misunderstanding.
Houston claims that she had taken pain pills for her back and turned her phone off to get some rest. She was unaware that anyone was trying to reach her.
As for the Facebook post, Pat said that she is not suicidal and it was posted due to stress.
Police say that she was rushed from her Alpharetta, GA home to the hospital as a precautionary measure and was released a short time later.
Pat is married to Whitney’s brother Gary Houston.
