Whitney Houston's family didn't appreciate Clive Davis's decision not to shut down his pre Grammy party.

But that's not going to stop the man who discovered her from attending her funeral.

Sources close to Clive state that he is "devastated" and he "put on a brave face" for Saturday party. Whitney was upstairs, dead, as the party began. Clive paid tribute to the fallen singer, stating that Whitney "would have wanted the music to go on."

Whitney's family disagrees.

Sources state that her family found it insensitive that the party continued and that it was in "bad taste."

But Clive is taking it in stride as best he can. A spokesperson said the following:

Mr. Davis, who is mourning the loss of his beloved Whitney, has nothing but the utmost love and respect for the entire Houston family.

Clive and other mourners will be in Newark, NJ for her funeral on Saturday.

    Feeling like he made a tough decision on a couple of hours notice, and many people might have been on their way already. It's the Grammys, not a house party. As such,
    many, many other artists under his wing on this. Agree with Clive in this instance.

    It's "perTURbation". Spellcheck takes 2 seconds you know.



  4. 4

    The word is perturbation. Please don't use words with more than 2 syllables.
    Maybe you were thinking masturbation.



  5. 5

    Her family has GOT TO stop holding grievances against people: Bobby, Clive, anyone. It's done, it's over. Let whoever wants to attend the funeral come and mourn her whether you agree or not! :(



  6. 6

    He is old and GaGa…someone in his camp made the decision to hold a party 4 floors below whwere she was lying dead….someone likely hopped up on coke ….R.I.P. Whitney .



  7. 7

    I do think it was disgusting they had the party in the same HOTEL that Whitney died in, 4 floors up. Could they not have moved the party to another hotel nearby?
    Whitney attended that pre-Grammy party every single year since she was discovered. It's just sick.



  8. 8

    Hopefully that HoHan tramp, and Demi Whore will take note of all of this, smarten up, and lay off drugs ……



  9. 9

    The world shouldn't stop every time a crackhead dies.



  10. 10

    did you HAVE to post this pic showing her obvious implants? you're such a heartless bastard, perez - have some fucking CLASS and think about her daughter.

    Her family needs to calm the heck down. Whitney is the person who killed herself..no one else. She was the addict..yes, she was surrounded by enablers…but aren't all stars? Clive helped her into rehab, he tried to get her cleaned up with promises of new contracts, etc..if it weren't for him… she would never had had the career she had..cancelling his yearly party on a few hours notice…no. I don't think Whitney would have wanted him to cancel his party. She's in bliss now..and she's most likely reviewing her life and thinking.."yea, I screwed up this time around.." Bless her heart..let her rest in the peace she made for herself and let's try and keep focused on addiction. It's a disease and one that takes someone to hit rock bottom to want to fix. She never had a chance to hit rock bottom..sometimes bad publicity is better than good and she seemed okay with that.

    Re: tateration2 – ROTFLLL Honestly, those implants are the worst - but why are you yelling ta Perez for posting the photo? Other than the goofy breasts, she looks relatively nice. He needed to post a pic w/ her and Clive - here you go. Now stop complaining. People need to stop doing wonky things to their bodies, other people will judge.



  13. 13

    Whitneys death didn't stop Oprah from her chicken bucket
    If Clive had canceled, we would have heard how selfish that old jew was, and how he
    prevented so many people from working that night as servers, valet, bus boys, security etc
    Get over it, and lets get back to Oprah and her chicken fest



  14. 14

    Her family needs to get over themselves. Whitney's funeral is for people to pay their respects and mourn her - not for the family to air their petty grievances. What a bunch of selfish, hateful cretons.



  15. 15

    Boy did she have some bad implants!



  16. 16

    He should stay away out of respect for her mother. He should have cancelled the party. His true colors came out by having it. SHAME ON HIM.



  17. 17

    If Clive does attend it is because he is invited. The funeral is by invitation only.



  18. 18

    Re: tateration2 – because saying that totally made you more classy right?

    Clive Davis is the biggest PIMP in show business today. He's single handedly destroyed the record industry pandering to the lowest common denominator. Buy indie.

    Re: ganzaii – Clive operated with expertise within the existing system as it was. Buy indie.



  21. 21

    That's the industry for you. It chews you up and spits you out. Clive over the recent years tried to revamp her career but it was useless. You can't help someone who doesn't want the help to begin with. I do agree with Whitney's family that having the party that night continue was outright rude and inconsiderate. Whitney made Clive lots and lots of money and this is the respect he gives her on the night she died? Family is grieving and tensions are high. Whitney's family will never forget that night.

    Mom and Auntie Dionne need to quit blaming everyone and step up and say, "You know we could have done a lot more ourselves!"
    …Uh, their telling me in my earpiece that won't be happening anytime soon.



  23. 23

    Actually reading it here-as we all know- doesn't make it so. If he goes, as stated by others in the threads, it is because he got an invitation. P. you are such a drama queen!



  24. 24

    I don't know what to think of this. On one hand people might have already been there and everything was set up. But on the other hand this was someone so close to him that just died hours before not days. I don't think I would be able to do anything if that happened to someone close to me never mind this huge affair.



  25. 25

    CLIVE DAVIS DOESNT RUN THE SHOW ANYMORE. HE IS JUST A SPOKESPERSON FOR THE PRE-GRAMMY SHOW NOW. NARAS AND GRAMMY CEO NEIL PORTNOW RUN THE EVENT. THEY TOOK OVER SOME 3-4 YRS AGO WHEN DAVIS COULDNT FINANCE THE EVENT DUE TO RISING COSTS AND ARISTA/SONY DIDNT WANT TO FOOT THE BILL ANYMORE. NEIL PORTNOW WAS QUOTED AS SAYING "..THE PRE-GRAMMY PARTY WAS NEVER GOING TO BE CANCELED FOR ANYTHING". TRUTH!!
