Contrary to the reports, Prince released a statement via his manager clearing up the “banning” of Whitney Houston. Prince spoke of Ms. Houston saying, “she’s always welcome 4 all of eternity.”
Although TMZ confirmed the ban with several sources connected to Prince’s tour, another source emerged yesterday saying ,
“Someone could have taken it upon themselves to say Whitney was banned … but it did not come from Prince. Whoever decided Whitney was banned did not have the authority to do so.”
Whitney Houston may have lost her “purple privileges” as TMZ recently reported she has been banned from future Prince concerts. It appears the diva had some over the top ticket demands and has been spotted showing up to several concerts intoxicated –although there has been no confirmation on someone actually seeing her do drugs or drink alcohol.
Yet, Whitney has also voluntarily checked herself into an outpatient rehab program….So you know what that means – she’s off the wagon!
Plus now with there being a “Waiting to Exhale” sequel underway – we hope that her recent tirade doesn’t threaten her role in the film. Stay tuned…
