Whitney Houston Banned From Prince Concerts

Whitney Houston was banned from a series of Prince concerts before being admitted to rehab. The 47-year-old singer – who has a history of substance abuse issues – was reportedly told not to attend any more of the pop legend’s shows after she appeared “intoxicated” at every concert she went to in the run-up to entering a treatment facility to seek help for her addictions.

According to gossip website TMZ, organisers eventually grew tired with Whitney’s demands after she pestered them for free tickets and then demanded to be let up on stage with the ‘Purple Rain’ singer.

An insider revealed:

“They didn’t want her to embarrass herself.”

After eventually being banned from the gigs due to her increasingly “erratic behaviour”, Whitney voluntarily entered an out-patient rehab program around 10 days ago. Her spokesperson recently confirmed:

“Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab programme for drug and alcohol treatment. Whitney voluntarily entered the programme to support her long-standing recovery process.”

The treatment programme reportedly allows the singer – who was pictured at a Prince concert last weekend – to leave the facility, as long as she is accompanied by a monitor.

  2. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR BLOG, THIS STORY WAS A LIE AND TMZ HAS RETRACTED IT! FAIL!!

    ooks like tmz finally updated their report but not after stalling for a day making sure they got hits and further damaging her reputation. This story doesn’t even make sense. Whitney said she wants to work with prince in her instyle mag interview last year
    youtube whitney singing iwaly at the world music award and watch prince close his eyes and zone out to her. he loves her there is no way he would do this.

    she made over $40mil last year from her tour, she produced The Princess Diaries I and II movies and The Cheetah Girls, i’m sure she is still getting residuals from that and her cd sold 2.5mil worldwide and she still has her $100mil recording contract with Arista so i doubt she can’t afford to pay for tickets to see him. Just F*cked Up TMZ!

    Apparently, Prince had no idea Whitney Houston had been blacklisted from his concerts … and now, The Purple One wants everyone to know “she’s always welcome 4 all of eternity.”

    TMZ had confirmed the ban with several sources connected to Prince’s tour — but Wednesday, Prince’s manager released a statement welcoming Houston to come back whenever she wants … insisting the singer enjoys having Houston in his audience.

    One extremely connected source tells us, “Someone could have taken it upon themselves to say Whitney was banned … but it did not come from Prince.”

    The source adds, “Whoever decided Whitney was banned did not have the authority to do so.”

    In fact, we’re told Prince invited Whitney to hang out backstage during one of his L.A. shows.
