Whitney Houston Hospitalized for Nose and Throat Problems

October 5, 2015

Members of Whitney Houston's entourage confirmed Wednesday that she is currently in a Paris hospital suffering from nose and throat problems.

Houston, 46, canceled the first concert of her European tour in Paris on Tuesday because of a “respiratory infection”, and will likely have to miss the second in Manchester, England, scheduled for Thursday, a member of her entourage said.

The source said she was being treated in the Paris hospital for “chronic rhinopharyngitis (a swelling of the mucus membranes in the nose and pharynx) and an infection whose cause has not been identified.”
