R&B Singer Houston Gouges His Eye Out After Failed Suicide Attempt

02/02/2005 5:00 PM, LAUNCH
LAUNCH Radio Networks

R&B singer Houston, whose full name is Houston Summers IV, reportedly gouged out one of his eyes after a failed suicide attempt in a London hotel. MTV.com reports that last Thursday (January 27), the singer attempted to commit suicide by jumping off of the hotel balcony but was stopped by his security team. Houston then locked himself into a bathroom and gouged one of his eyes out. The singer was in Europe for a string of performances.

Details are still sketchy but on Wednesday (February 2), the singer's label, Capitol Records, released the following statement, "Our thoughts and prayers are with Houston during this tragic time."

The Los Angeles-based singer released his debut album, It's Already Written, last August. The set was certified gold for sales of 500,000 copies and featured the hit, "I Like That" featuring Chingy, Nate Dogg, and I-20.

When LAUNCH spoke to the singer last year, he explained that singing was in his blood. He said: "Been singing all my life. Pops is a singer, I'm the Fourth. You know he's Houston Summers the Third. You know he used to sing with Marvin Gaye back in the day. He used to do those background vocals. He was on the radio, so it's basically in my blood. Music is what I thirst for you know as well as God."

I don't know him.....or at least I can't remember him from just the title of the song. Anyway that's terrible and I'm glad he wasn't successful.........but gouging your eye out man was he distraught or just totally out of it to be so self-destructive.

OMG!! Not Houston!!

Rocketta, he sings that song with Nate Dogg. I just cannot believe this, because he did not seem suicidal at all. I guess we really don't know these stars. He had a pretty big hit with, " I Like That". They played it all on MTV and BET at one point.

I hope he is ok.
