According to an eyewitness who was in the Beverly Hilton yesterday (Feb. 11) minutes before Whitney Houston was pronounced dead, a young girl who "looked very much like" the singer's 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, left the hotel in a huff, cursing as she stormed through the lobby.

"She was like, 'I'm tired of this mess,' and she was using a few other choice words," Stephanie Jones told Kevin Frazier's HipHollywood.com (video below). "She stomped outside and I just kind of looked and said, 'OK, interesting.'"
Jones says the young girl was being followed by a man she pushed away, and that she seemed "angry" and "frustrated."
Around the time of the incident, Jones received a text message from a friend. The timestamp reads 3:47, minutes before Whitney was officially pronounced dead at 3:55PM PST.
When Jones walked outside, she saw two police cars pull up, and her first thought was that there would be some type of commotion.
"But they calmly got out of their cars, popped their trunks and pulled duffel bags out of their cars," she says.
Houston's only child, Bobbi Kristina was born to the singer and her then-husband Bobby Brown in March 1993. According to TMZ, the teenager returned to the Beverly Hilton hours later and got into a screaming match with police officers who kept her from entering the room with her mother's body. Singer Dionne Warwick, Whitney's cousin, is also said to have been turned away by authorities.
