For all of her fame and fortune, she had a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown and problems with drugs.
She was arrested for possession of half ounce marijuana in Hawaii, and could have faced a month in jail and a $1000 fine but a judge later dropped the charge when a drug counselor confirmed she was clean.
Houston was later linked to drug abuse when she entered a rehab facility.
She died in an accidental drowning in the bathtub in a guest room at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California on February 11, 2012.
Drug paraphernalia was found nearby, according to the coroner's report, and toxicology tests revealed several drugs were in her system.
