"Whitney Houston Is Broke (swipe)"


  

          

Not sure how reputable this is but I've seen this story in a few different places over that last couple days... wouldn't really shock me for this to be true.

http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2012/01/whitney-houston-financial-problems-broke-bobby-brown

Whitney Houston’s finances are hitting rock bottom, and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive details about her dire situation.

The Bodyguard star, 48, who sought help for her crack addiction last year, has lost her fortune, a source close to the singer exclusively revealed.

PHOTOS: Whitney Houston Through The Years

“Whitney’s fortune is gone,” the source said. “Music industry heavy hitters are supporting her and her label is fronting her cash against her next album, but no one knows when that will be released.”

The six-time Grammy winner has blown through an enormous fortune that she amassed over decades of stardom.

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Bobby Brown Passed Out On Flight

“She might be homeless if not for people saving her. She is broke as a joke.”

Bobby Brown’s ex-wife’s financial woes have her so cash strapped she’s been begging friends for help.

“She called someone to ask for $100,” the source said.

“It is so sad. She should have Mariah Carey money, and she’s flat broke.”

http://www.fox23news.com/entertainment/story/Houston-denies-financial-troubles/CZyaNH_QN0ymXWB4aL2qrg.cspx?rss=45&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Whitney Houston's representative has brushed off reports suggesting the singer is "flat broke."

Houston was alleged to have spent her millions, with editors at RadarOnline.com claiming she had begged pals for cash.

An insider told the site, "She might be homeless if not for people saving her."

But Houston's rep has spoken out to dismiss the rumors, telling GossipCop.com the story is "not true."

How can you get someone to loan you a hundred bucks if they think you're so broke you won't pay them back?

might have "just" been liquor... but anyone familiar with addicts know if they using alcohol they will soon be using other shit too... if they aren't already.

I was looking at how little real info is in this story and about ready to just dismiss it... then I remembered we're talking about a woman that's been crashing and burning for the better part of a decade now. Honestly the fact her people responded has me leaning towards there being some truth to this.

(I don't think the link you posted cited this)

was that their retort was something along the lines of "Well, she just finished shooting the movie Sparkle and duh, she got paid for that... So how can she be broke?"

>(I know you weren't making that case btw)

I was totally stunned that they would actually fix their mouth to make that kind of statement. Like, the difference between Whitney Houston and the poorhouse is a movie paycheck? And this ain't Titanic or nothin'... It's a remake of Sparkle directed by BILLE WOODRUFF.

Tyler Perry probably pays more...

When you think about it, it's an almost perfect fit.

After her next "fresh start" I bet you anything she ends up in a TP flick.

and whitney got the sparkle film coming and a couple of other projects. she will just have to scale back, hollywood always likes to go after very successful Black artists and say they are Broke,etc.. nothing new there.

Whitney can tour and make bread never count Whitney out and she ain't probably in the loot like she was 202-5 years back and plus she ain't much of a songwriter, but at the same time she can got some loot.

>Whitney can tour and make bread

There are real questions about her voice at this point... she might be able to piece together some studio shit but the jury seems to still be out on her as a viable touring act at this point.

I think the big screen is where she needs to keep her focus.

In response to Reply # 14


          

and she has fans who will go see her, and lets not forget she is one of the Female MountRushmore's. Whitney still has interest.

yeah its tough telling a Kid who didn't Hear Whitney in her Prime that back in the day She would run Beyonce's Weave into the 3rd aisle. because when Whitney hit a note back in the day it was like a Mike Tyson shot to your temple. it was Ova!

the last album went platinum and all she and any Vet artist needs is that one song.

we got spoiled by that once in a lifetime voice.

even though some to middle part of her catelog had that Corn factor, her vocal instrument gave her a Pass because she had a voice which was no joke.


she is singing on the soundtrack and i look forward to it. IMO while Beyonce is sitting at the stairs by default there really hasn't been anyone else quite like Whitney. yeah Mariah has range and alot of hits, but she was always like the cold lunch Whitney IMO.

I'm saying her voice might be shot. That fiasco in Australia was less than 2 years ago... now hopefully it was just the drugs and if she cleans herself up for a good period of time she can heal those pipes... but there's no guarantee she's ever going to be able to sound like her old self night in night out under the demands of a real tour.

32. "Even getting her voice back might not help..."
In response to Reply # 16
Tue Jan-31-12 07:40 PM by Jakob Hellberg

          

At least in europe, several of her shows was plagued by bad singing and people getting disa4ppointed, booing and even walking out. I doubt those people-who had been waiting years for this-will pay to see her again, especially since that tour also promised that her voice was in fine form. She supposedly sounded good for some shows but that arguably makes it worse because it becomes almost like a gamble to buy tickets and you might not want to take the chance.

I think it will take her some time/tours to rebuild peoples trust in her and I'm not sure she can do that before it's too late. Maybe she should play smaller venues next time rather than stadiums because if she do the latter, I suspect there will be a lot of empty seats...

and that is always the toughest part to accept because she should be like Dionne Warwick her cousin and gliding into that next phase of her career and then in 10 years doing the Tony bennitt route with ease instead of straining or being a hit and miss vocalist. just tough to take because She had it that "IT"

and the shocking thing is Bobby gets blamed for bringing her down... but plenty of people have said Whitney was going hard before Bobby and was always hood with it. All Bobby did was double up the consumption of drugs and liquor.

Growing up I never thought she would end up like this, I always figured she'd be the go to girl for cheesy tv specials and still be making movies.

Prince should teach a "how to be an icon and not totally lose it" seminar.

After reflecting on the legends we lost..

And how Prince made it out alive and in his right frame of mind..He BEEN trying to tell us..this shit here will KILL you..(His speech at the BET awards comes to mind, when he was telling young artist to learn from his mistakes..)

I mean, alot of people were getting on Prince about him going soft, finding religion, calming down..ect..

And while yeah, he may not make the same level of music anymore, he's still here..

and seemingly life has been sad to watch.

Because this girl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df5aaUbRx_s and this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KI3YrAv0C-I was one of it not the baddest motherfucka to ever pick up a mic on a pure vocal level.

Like another prodigy that ran shit in 1985 (Dwight Gooden) the brilliance of what was will always be followed to some degree with the promise of what could have been.

no doubt..you forget what it's like you when you see someone who clearly is on another level talent wise.

think of the pressure of being on carson and letterman as a 21 year old. between those two literally damn near the whole country was watching.

40. "Being Broke & Being In Debt Is Two Different Things"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I definitely believe that Whitney has blown, sniffed herself out of her fortune but she still has money aka royalties coming in monthly but she just went beyond what she has and is now in debt.

Until she sells all her homes, vehicles, jewels, clothing, furniture, and moves into a smaller home or apartment, she has money but not broke.
