Soul diva Whitney Houston caught with marijuana...

Whitney Houston, the whiter-than-white soul diva who’s recently re-invented herself as a funky r&b songstress, was caught with more than 15 grammes of marijuana last week in Hawaii, according to US reports.

According to a report today in the The Los Angeles Times, Whitney, married to r&b badboy star Bobby Brown, was stopped as she passed through airport security at Keahole-Kona International Airport on the US Pacific islands.

However, as the guards had no powers to arrest her, the singer just walked away without the bag before police arrived to arrest her.


The singer then boarded her United Airlines flight to San Francisco and left 45 minutes before police entered the airport terminal.

No one was available for comment at Whitney’s label Arista, but it’s understood that the case may be referred to the Hawaii County presecutor’s office.

Ms Houston, who’s currently nominated for four Grammy awards for her latest album ‘My Love Is Your Love’, could face up to 30 days in jail or a $1000 fine, the LA Times reported.
