According to TMZ, the L.A. County Coroner has just released Whitney Houston’s official cause of death, which has been listed as accidental drowning. It is also being reported that “heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors to Whitney’s demise.”

The R&B/pop diva was found dead in the bathroom of the Beverly Hilton hotel on February 11, the same night as her mentor Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party and 24 hours before the actual award ceremony. Pills were allegedly discovered in the room on the night of the incident, but cocaine was never found.
