Sad: Whitney Houston Reportedly Broke!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWhitney HoustonBusiness Blitz


So sad.

Whitney Houston is scrambling for money. Sources close to her say that she lost her entire fortune.

A source says the following on Whitney's financial woes:

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.

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

The same source said that Whitney has even panhandled some of her friends, calling one to ask for $100.

We feel for you, gurl.

    Drugs & rehab are expensive, and she hasn't worked in years. Not too shocking. She'll rebound - new movie coming out & a record label fronting her cash.

  2. 2

    Uhm, yeah. right. This story's about as real as Kim K's marriage.

  3. 3

    What is really sad is that someone who had beauty, talent, money, and the opportunity to do anything she wanted to, chose a path of self destruction.

  4. 4

    Join the club honey. And I'll bet her house is still better than mine. Crack-head!

    While I am sure her financial situation isn't as great as it once was, I doubt it is as extreme as her panhandling for $100. That Sparkle remake is her movie because she not only is going to star in it, she is the executive producer. I doubt a production studio would give the greenlight on a multi million dollar movie to someone who has to hustle for a Benjamin!

    you feel for someone who irresponsibly burned through 100s of millions of dollars? i dont.

  7. 7

    dosent she get royalties ? i have my doubts about this. and if it is true hopefully it is a lesson to any other idiots who think 'crack is da bomb'

    Drugs will do that to a person. No sympathy here. She could have had a good life had she managed her money. Pathetic and ungrateful. I have no time for that and I sure have no time to feel sorry for her. I'm too busy trying to makes ends meet and I could have lived the rest of my life EASILY on the money she made in her lifetime. SO "F" HER. Tired of people feeling sorry for losers who could make better choices.

    Yea but she'll always be n##### rich.

  10. 10

    Boo to the f'in hoo!

  11. 11

    I would expect nothing less from an ol crack ho

  12. 12

    When I think back to the "crack is whack" comment days and watching her on her reality show, she was such a classless loser. she had so many chances and blew everyone of them. She will never be rich again and guess what, neither will the 99 other percent of the public. Hard to feel sorry for her.

  13. 13

    Will some give her directions to the Rescue Mission & Soup kitchen?

    Ha Ha!

    How about getting a REAL JOB; sorting clothes at Goodwill maybe; Walmart cashier…

  17. 17

    SPARKLE is going to FLOP!

  18. 18

    I always thought she was a stuck-up BITCH; thinking her shit don't stink!

  19. 19

    I don't "feel" for her, she did it to herself. A poor decision to marry Bobby Brown and a drug habit. She knew EXACTLY what she was doing when she put the white stuff up her nose. Do I feel sorry for her? NOT A CHANCE. I just hope hitting bottom helps her to put her life back together.

  20. 20

    Even I know this shit is fake… back when she divorced Bobby she was pulling $125k/mos just in royalties alone. Forbes (2011) said she was worth some 80 mil+. She made like some $16-$17 mil net from her tour 1.5 yrs ago and this Sparkle movie she is said to pull some 4-5 mil + backend points in a executive producer and supporting role. Her daughter bobbi-kris has some weird ass ex-friends. They were spreading rumors about her and whitney being broke and shit. Bet those 2 losers former friends are back at it, lmao. Next.

  21. 21

    Sorry but no sympathy from me. What, is she down to her last million? Bet she still has a home and is able to get very well paid work, unlike many people at the moment.

  22. 22

    I thought she looked familiar holding up that sign "Will Crackle Out a Song for Cash" on the highway on-ramp….

  23. 23

    Dumb dumb story! Begging for $100 MY FOOT!!! She's paid for "Sparkle" and gets royalties on tons of songs & movies. PUH-LEESE!!! What is the point of this ridiculous story?! The only thing I can think of is. . .her PR team planted this story so that folks will support Whitney by going to see "Sparkle" and buy her next CD. It aint gonna work. Stick a fork in her. . .she's done! She's a has-been crack head. Bye B*tch!

    There are only a handful of singers who can stand on the platform and accept the title of 'the best' Whitey was one of them., when she was on her game, nobody could touch her. An old rocker friend of mine has a rule when you join his band.. 'never believe your own press' She started this whole journey not being able to be who she was.. she had been living with a woman for years. I now pray for her, what a waste of an enormous talent….

  25. 25

    She spent her last few bucks on Plastic Surgery…..

    Whitney Houston in the 80's and 90's didn't have a good voice, she possessed the GREATEST voice the music industry has ever seen. Beyonce, Christina, Mariah and Adele could not match how perfect Whitney's talent was. And what did she do, she through it all away for drugs and Bobby Brown. Michael Jackson was a shame b/c he was so talented and died too soon. Not sure what's worse…Whitney being a shell of her former greatness. She has nobody to blame for her financial situation but herself and nobody to blame for destroying her incredible gift but herself.

    Drug addiction is a bitch. Good luck Whitney in staying sober and getting back to work.

    Re: Nathiestx – and you're just n##### poor, lol

    this is a big lie! whitney just recorded a movie for which he received a large sum of money besides getting royalties for it sua aunsigo previous films that spend more on television or sold …. In addition also get royalties for every disc sold it! both old and new! since all are sold even in a good way, but also receives royalties for every disney movie where she worked as a producer: the cheetah girls, the journal of the princess or cinderella! this was said by his own agent to the media toos! so do not go with the simple yellow journalism! that hurt just looking for whitney are realizing it's a new woman and eager to make hollywood again!

    Every time this woman gets sick, she is on drugs, everytime she has a bad singing gig, she is on drugs, everytime anything goes wrong the media says she is high and relapsed, weight goes up or down, its drugs…. Why are people so stupid, she is a human being not a freakin robot. Now on the topic that she is broke, this makes me laugh so hard, here are the facts: even after Whitney left bobby she had an untouched account secured by an iron clad prenump… 2nd: she released a new 2009 album of which she received a very healthy advance, not to mention she sold over 350k copies in the first week, also i look to you went #1 3rd: she toured all of 2010 (NBLT) and even if some say it wasnt her best tour, regardless she grossed over 36 million!!!! not thousand! that is alot of bread in a short amount of time and Whitney doesnt owe 50 cents to anyone, so thats all her money, she may have done drugs in the past but one this she wasnt was foolish about her money. back in 2001 she signed a deal for 100million, thats alot of money and yes it wasnt all given to her at once( she is still receiving from that) 4th: movie producer, the royalities from that alone is a nice pay ckeck, also she just completed Sparkle and co produced with deb chase.. you have to have money to procuce anything. i hope this cleared some of these visious rumers up, people need to just back off and know the facts, the facts of which I just shared some. Love ya Whitney, you know I always got ur back.
