UPDATE 22:20 PM

INSIDER’s Kevin Frazier spoke exclusively to Pat Houston, Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law, who is refuting reports that she attempted to take her own life.  Houston told Frazier that she would never harm herself and was simply resting after injuring her back the day before. “[Suicide] is never an option and never would be an option for me,” Houston stated.  “I wouldn’t do that to my family, especially my daughter who means the world to me.”

Houston went on to say, “I injured my back while working out with my daughter yesterday so I decided to take the day off and get some rest.”  Houston explained to Frazier that she went to bed, turned off her phones and took medication to help with her injury.  When she awoke, the police were in her bedroom. Houston was particularly upset because the reports of a suicide attempt brought distress to her family, especially her teenage daughter and her niece, Bobbi Kristina.  Houston, who hosted 40 teens in her home this past weekend as part of a mentoring program, expressed concerns about the message the false reports sent to those children as well.

The entire incident was sparked after friends misinterpreted a Facebook post which was made by Houston.  When her longtime family security guard could not reach her, the police were called.  In response to the incident, Houston sent a message to concerned friends via Twitter saying “I’m very tired and need much needed rest, but not Rest in Peace.”

Pat Houston’s family called emergency services on Monday, believing she was about to commit suicide after she posted a troubling message on Facebook.

TMZ reports that the sister-in-law of late singer Whitney Houston, posted the message: “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.”

Fearing the worst, several family members called 911 and paramedics and police rushed to Pat’s home in Alpharetta, Georgia, only to discover the scare was a huge misunderstanding. Sources told the website that several family members were immediately concerned when they began calling and texting Pat but received no answer. According to the website, they went to Pat’s house and found her passed out on her bed next to a pill bottle, prompting them to immediately call 911.

Fortunately, it was a complete misunderstanding, with Pat soon waking up as soon as police arrived. TMZ said she told police she had taken pain medication for her back and gone to sleep and turned off her phone, unaware that so many people were trying to contact her.

Pat informed concerned parties that her Facebook post was the result of stress. She was taken to the hospital as a preventative measure but released a short time later.  Pat is married to Whitney’s brother Gary and worked as Whitney’s business manager before the singer’s death last February.

Black Teenager Attacked by Corrections Deputy in Florida, Investigation Underway

Published

on

A Florida corrections deputy has been placed on leave after going on the attack against a 17-year-old at a juvenile center … and it’s all on video.

The teenager, Terrance Devon Reed III, was taken to the hospital after the violent altercation with Sarasota County Deputy Neil Pizzo last week. The surveillance footage shows Reed sitting on a bench with his arms tucked in his shirt when Pizzo marches toward him.

As Reed stands up and takes his arms out, the deputy immediately goes for his throat. A struggle ensues before Pizzo throws Reed to the ground, but at no point does the teenager appear to fight back.

Another deputy jumps in to try to wrangle Reed’s feet, and that’s when Pizzo strikes the teen on the back of the head multiple times. Reed’s then cuffed and helped to his feet … but not before suffering abrasions to his head.

The altercation reportedly began after Reed — who was previously arrested and charged with contempt of court, probation violations and cocaine possession — became uncooperative in a police lineup.

That, of course, doesn’t justify the violence by the deputy, and Sheriff Tom Knight says he’s disappointed in what he saw and Pizzo’s failure to de-escalate the situation.

Knight says he placed the deputy on administrative duty while an internal investigation is conducted.

Published

on

Tamar Braxton boyfriend is running to court asking for protection against her in what he describes as a domestic violence situation.

The singer’s BF, David Adefeso, filed for a restraining order Tuesday in L.A. seeking to prevent Domestic Violence and he’s asking a judge to grant him one against Tamar. For now, it’s unclear what he’s alleging she might’ve done.

It doesn’t look like the court has approved his request just yet  

At any rate, it’s another sign that things have been volatile lately in her life — especially as it pertains to David. Remember, he’s the one who called 911 not too long ago saying Tamar was threatening to kill herself. He also mentioned her WeTV beef to cops at the time.

Also keep in mind … family sources connected to Tamar have told us they believe she’s changed since getting with him — claiming her mood seems to align with his. We’ve also been told that David has come off as controlling in Tamar’s reality show, and that he’s been quite involved in her business decisions of late.

This continues to be a developing story…..

The bodies of a missing US couple have been found at the bottom of a well in Mexico.

Ian Hirschsohn, 78 and his 73-year-old wife Kathy Harvey had been missing since August 31, when they were supposed to return home to San Diego from a trip across the border.

Their abandoned car was found in Ensenada, just 90 minutes from the US border, last week.

Investigators then made the grim discovery on Thursday in an unpopulated area just south of the tourist hotspot.

The bodies were recovered over the weekend; San Diego police confirmed their identities, CBS8 reported.

Family members said the couple had been staying at a rented house in El Socorrito, about 200 miles south of the border, a town they frequented over the past 35 years.

Kathy texted her son Robert on August 28 to say they were going to either explore a gold mine or visit a beach; however the family lost contact with them on August 31.

After reporting them missing, the Consulate General in Tijuana finally informed the family the couple’s Toyota Land Cruiser had been found in Ensenada.

“She was really enjoying retirement and had multiple groups of friends,” Robert told the site. “She loved walking and traveling.  She had a huge bucket list of where she wanted to go.”

An investigation is now underway. The cause of deaths has not been revealed, nor has a motive, but investigators suspect foul play.
