Whitney Houston's Property Loss

Whitney Houston is selling her old marital home.

The 'I Will Always Love You' singer is selling the luxury five-bedroom property - where she wed Bobby Brown in 1992 - in New Jersey for just $2.5 million, less than half its estimated worth of $5.6 million.

The 46-year-old singer - who currently lives in Los Angeles with daughter Bobbi after divorcing Bobby in 2007 - hasn't lived in the house for some time.

During the last years of their marriage, Whitney and Bobby were based in Atlanta.

She nearly lost the house - which boasts a four-car garage, three fireplaces, walk-in closets, a bar and skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows - in 2006 after a combination of failing to pay taxes and her being sued for $1.04 million by her mortgage company. The lawsuit was eventually resolved.

Whitney is not the only star set to lose money on a property sale.

British singer Robbie Williams is selling his lavish estate in Wiltshire, UK, for £1 million less than he paid for it.

After just eight months in England, the 'Bodies' hitmaker and his girlfriend Ayda Field - who bought the 18th century Wiltshire house for £8.5 million in February - have slashed the estate's price so they can get back to sunny Los Angeles as quickly as possible.

An insider said: "Robbie is desperate to get things moving quickly rather than hang around just to get a bit more money. Being settled back in the States quickly with Ayda is more important to him.

"He's already got a few people interested in the mansion."

Encouraging Parent Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston wants her daughter to be able to express herself.

The 'I Look To You' singer admits 16-year-old Bobbi Kristina takes after her father Bobby Brown in the personality stakes and believes it's important for her to let her real feelings be known.

Whitney - who is divorced from Bobby - said: "It's funny because her body is mine, her skin colour is mine, but she says exactly what's on her mind, so she's like her father in that manner. These kids, man, they come out and just let you know right off. But I think it's a very important thing to allow our children to express themselves so it won't be expressed in other areas, like on the street. If she's angry, I allow her to say, 'Damn! I'm so frustrated today!' "

Like any mother and teenage daughter, Whitney admits they do sometimes argue but Bobbi knows she can rely on her mother to be there for her no matter what.

She added to America's InStyle magazine: "We have our moments when we clash, but we have a good relationship. I want her to count on me to try to understand what she's going through. No damnation, no condemnation, nothing that's going to make her feel like she can't come to me."

Houston Eyes will.i.am Collaboration


Whitney Houston
has revealed that she wants to work with will.i.am on her next album.

The 'Nothin But Love' singer is keen to collaborate with will.i.am after his recent chart success, reports The Mirror.

"Of any current stars that are around right now, I would love to work with will.i.am. He is always at the top of my list," she is quoted as saying.

Houston announced earlier today that the opening date of the European leg of her world tour, which was due to take place in Paris tonight, has been postponed due to a respiratory infection.

The next concert in the tour, scheduled for Manchester on Thursday, is still scheduled to go ahead.

Whitney Houston Takes Center Stage at Pre-Grammy Party
By Reagan Alexander
Friday February 10, 2012 12:30 PM EST
people.com

With this coming Sunday's awards night igniting Grammy fever throughout L.A., Whitney Houston was among the revelers having a grand old time at Thursday's "Kelly Price & Friends Unplugged: For The Love Of R&B Grammy Party" at Tru Hollywood.

The singer, herself a six-time Grammy winner, made her entrance two hours after the party got going, emerging from a Cadillac Escalade in a snug black cocktail gown with a plunging neckline.

Among her large party was her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, and the two clutched hands on the red carpet before hastily heading inside the venue.

Inside, sitting within the VIP area with Bobbi Kristina and a large group, Houston, 48, seemed to be in great spirits. Shortly after 11 p.m., she had her hands in the air and was dancing to the R&B group Bell Biv Devoe's "Poison."

Moments later, El DeBarge, 50, arrived and, after making a beeline to Houston's table, the two shared a joyous hug.

Introducing her daughter to everyone who stopped by during the course of the night, Houston looked to be having a very happy time, before zipping off to what was said to be an even more private area of the club.

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards air Sunday on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.


Just me, or are they making it sound like she was plastered?? The bolding in the above article is mine.....

However, Whitney's publicist has claimed that the star's home is not in any danger of mortgage foreclosure and she is up to date with all payments.
Houston, who has overcome crack cocaine addiction, has allegedly spent all of her fortune, including a reported $100million record deal.
She is being financially supported by her record label Arista, which has given her an advance payment on her next album, according to reports.

The end of a long night: Whitney looked worse for wear as she sat in the backseat of the car

‘Whitney's fortune is gone. 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’ a source told Radaronline.com.
‘She might be homeless if not for people saving her. She is broke as a joke.’
Whitney - whose ex-husband is Bobby Brown - is believed to be in such a dire financial position she has even had to resort to contacting friends for small loans.

The source added: ‘She called someone to ask for $100. It is so sad. She should have Mariah Carey money, and she's flat broke.’
A spokesperson for the singer strongly denied the claims when contacted by MailOnline and said: 'That is ridiculous and not true! She stars in SPARKLE out in August which she also Exec produced. She just wrapped the film.'
In August 2001, Whitney signed the biggest record deal in music history at the time with Arista/BMG, renewing her contract with the label for $100million to deliver six new albums.
She released her last LP I Look to You in August 2009.

I always thought she'd make a comeback. Guess not....


TMZ.com

Whitney Houston was taking Xanax ... evidence she may have fallen asleep in the bathtub where she died ... TMZ has learned.

Family members of Whitney tell us the singer had a prescription for the drug, which is commonly used to treat anxiety and depression.

We told you yesterday ... the night before Whitney died, she had been drinking a lot. Xanax mixed with alcohol can cause severe sedation, which could cause someone to fall asleep in a bathtub.

As TMZ first reported, Whitney was found in the bathtub and removed before EMTs arrived. The L.A. County Coroner will perform an autopsy -- possibly today -- to determine if Whitney died from drowning, and OD or other causes.

As we previously reported, Beverly Hills cops obtained a search warrant and found various prescription bottles -- but, as far as we know, no illicit drugs.

Doesn't seem to matter these days, does it? HUGE "prescription" drug problem going on now.....

When my husband told me last night that she had died, I had *just* finished looking at the photos taken at the Grammy party. So so sad.

I wouldn't be surprised if she had been using coke or smoking crack at the Kelly Price party. There were reports that she was really agitated and erratic. Maybe she was still using coke but needed the Xanax to come down for the Clive Davis party. I think she was supposed to perform. So sad

popbitch How the music industry works part 25 Before she was introduced to Clive Davis, CBS Records were interested in signing a 17 year-old Whitney Houston. She performed for two of their most senior execs. They declined to sign her. The exact verdict? "Pretty girl. Can't sing."
