There was a suicide scare in the Houston family on Tuesday, but cops now say it was all a misunderstanding.
Family members called 911 on Whitney Houston‘s sister-in-law Pat Houston, because they thought she tried to commit suicide after a Facebook page posting. Her post said: “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.”
TMZ reports that family members were concerned after reading the status update, tried to call her and got no answer. Once the cops and paramedics arrived at her home in suburban Atlanta, she woke up and explained that she’d taken pain medication for her bad back and had turned her phone off and didn’t know that loved ones were trying to reach her.
She also chalked her Facebook posting up to stress. She was taken to the hospital and released later.
