Some of the prescriptions of singer Whitney Houston were filled out by the same pharmacy which was raided in 2009 for evidence of "improper dispensing of controlled substances", in connection with Michael Jackson's death, reports gossip website TMZ. Though the reports are yet to be confirmed.

"Mickey Fine is thought to have been the go-to-pharmacy for both the pop icons who are believed to have spent thousands of dollars there," a Daily Mail report said.

"Some of the prescriptions found in Whitney's hotel room were reportedly issued in 2011, but some were believed to have been more recent." continued the report.

The amoxicillin was recently prescribed to Houston for a sore throat, sources told TMZ.

Fans are awaiting autopsy results that may not come for weeks, as speculation has swirled that the pop legend with a troubled past may have died from a lethal cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol.

Houston, who was one of the biggest singing stars of the 1980s and 1990s, selling more than 170 million records, fought a long and public battle with substance abuse after her career and personal life went off the rails.

She was found dead on Saturday, at the age of 48, in her bathtub in a luxury suite of the Beverly Hilton hotel as preparations were under way for the Grammy Awards, the highlight of the music industry calendar.

An autopsy was completed on Sunday but the toxicology probe is said to be ongoing and a "security hold" has been placed on its results, which officials say may not be published for six to eight weeks.
