Sister-in-law of the late Whitney Houston, Pat Houston was the subject of a huge suicide scare. Apparently, Pat's Facebook status was the cause of the scare after family members grew concerned at the update.On her Facebook status update, family members read:

“Sometimes you just feel like giving up on life and its many challenges. And for the first time in my life…I’m tired…and I want to finally rest. I love you guys.”


The update was taken seriously as a possible suicide message, and police were notified immediately. Family members also were terrified after Pat wouldn't answer her phone and all calls went immediately to voice-mail.

According to reports, after authorities arrived at Patricia Houston's home, they found her alive and well, but asleep -- next to a bottle of pills.

Patricia told authorities she took the pain pills for her back pain and went to sleep. She also stated that her Facebook status update was simply the result of stress.

Wow! Has anyone ever misinterpreted you Facebook or Twitter status?
