It turns out that musical legend Prince had no idea his concert organizers banned Whitney Houston from his shows.
The 52-year-old award-winning singer says Whitney, who has recently enrolled in rehab as an out-patient for drug and alcohol addiction, is “always welcome 4 all eternity” in his concerts.
TMZ first broke the news that Whitney was blacklisted from attending Prince’s shows after his people became fed up with her erratic behavior and constant ticket demands. Whitney apparently appeared to be “intoxicated” at each Prince show she attended in the last few weeks.
She also reportedly constantly badgered his staff to let her up on stage, although they refused because they “didn’t want her to embarrass herself.” They ultimately banned her from attending his shows.
But now Prince is saying he didn’t even know about the ban.
His manager recently tolddrfunkenberry.com in a statement,
“Whitney Houston is always welcome at Prince shows 4 all of eternity. Seeing her at 2 shows at The Forum in LA was a treat, especially when she sang with Chaka Khan and danced with Prince during his set. We love her always.”
Glad that’s all cleared up.
