R+B star HOUSTON has reportedly gouged out one of his eyes after a failed suicide attempt.

The I LIKE THAT singer was staying at a London hotel when his security team had to stop him from jumping out of a window, according to MTV NEWS.

Houston was then locked in his hotel room by his entourage where he reportedly inflicted the eye injury on himself. The star's record label, Capitol Records, is unavailable for comment.
