Yesterday the late Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law, Pat Houston sent family members into panic-mode after she posted a message to her Facebook that seemed a bit suicidal, which eventually led to the authorities being called to her Georgia home, reports TMZ.
“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,” is the message Pat posted to her Facebook page that initially got the attention of her family members.
A source says the family grew fearful that Pat was contemplating taking her life and immediately began calling her and sending text messages to her cell phone. When Pat didn’t respond, several family members rushed to her home where they found her passed out in her bed with a bottle of pills not too far away. Frightened by the scene, her family called 911.
The source says that Pat woke up as soon as cops arrived on the scene and expressed that she had just taken pain medicine for her back and turned her phone off so that she could get some rest. The insider says Pat suggests that this was all a misunderstanding and that her Facebook post was not a suicide note, just a result of stress and an effort to let off some steam. Authorities say as a precaution, Pat was taken to the hospital and was released not long after.
We’re sure that this was a frightening experience, as the Houston family suffered the loss of Whitney a little over a year ago. We’re glad Pat is okay. Something about this story seems a tad suspect though.
