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.
