Whitney Houston has faced a number of personal issues over the last few years, most of them drug-related.
But a source is now telling The National Enquirer that the singer is dealing with the most troubling foe of all: emphysema.
This insider paints a grim future for the star, saying: "Her doctors are warning her she’ll die a horrible death."
While this tabloid isn't exactly known for breaking reliable news, the diagnosis would explain Whitney's disastrous world tour last year, as fans walked out on concerts due to her awful performances.
Houston remains one of the greats, however. What is your favorite song of hers?
