Clive Davis Is Not Paying For Whitney Houston's Funeral

clive davis not paying for whitney houston funeral

Although Clive Davis was reportedly paying a majority of Whitney Houston's bills before her tragic death last Saturday, as the singer was allegedly broke, the music mogul has left the costs of her funeral to go to her family.

According to an insider:

"Yes, Clive was paying the majority of Whitney's bills before she died. He was even paying for her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel; she was out of money. She didn't have anything left. Clive won't be paying for any part of Whitney's funeral though. Whitney's family will be responsible for all the costs."

So devastating to think that someone who had so much let her life get so out of control that she had absolutely nothing left.

And although it was more than generous of Clive to support her the way that he did, we think it's probably for the best that her family take care of the arrangements for her final resting place.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to them during this time.

    Holy Gross Implants!

    Whitney even outdid Tyson and most NBA players for Mi$management. She signed a US$100 million record deal in 2001 and somewhere along the line decided to smoke and snort it all

    I'm afraid most of her money must have gone to her addiction problem.

    This is not even true It's already been reported she's worth about $20 million. God, do you people believe what Perez posts? He doesn't get much right. I think he posts stuff without even watching or reading anything else and just posts it anyway because "AN INSIDER SAID IT'S TRUE." She makes royalties, etc., there is no way she was broke.

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – I sure hope you're right.

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – there's a HUGE difference between HAVING $20 Mill and being WORTH $20 Mill

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – she doesn't make much in royalties as other people wrote the songs, not her… THEY get the royalty $$

    If she had so much money, why didn't she get decent implants? They're as bad as Tori Spelling's!

    So he was paying for her Bar Tab at the Hilton…..

    People like Whitney Houston have complex financial situations where they might be WORTH tens of millions in name, but only HAVE some paltry amount of cash that they've earned. I'm not entirely sure how it works, but basically the reports are "WHITNEY HOUSTON was broke at the time of her death, but WHITNEY HOUSTON'S ESTATE is worth somewhere between $20-80 MILLION." I have a feeling that the millions are what her recording are estimated at overall, with future sales being considered, but the woman herself blew (pun intended) through whatever cash she earned personally.

    Didn't he take a lot of heat from her camp for not cancelling the annual bash? Lots of other things were probably said that likely didn't sit well. No one has sounded grateful, yet he's rumored to have been paying all her bills. A small funeral is one thing, and now a 300 person funeral is another. Usually family arranges whatever they can afford. He wasn't her family even though it sounds like he helped her more than he probably should have.

    It is getting tiresome heaing all the negativity @ Whitney and Clive Davis! Can't we remember all the positives @ this awesome singer?!

    Clive Davis was her mentor, loved her like a father, is devastated at this terrible loss. He ahs been a rock for the family and I hope he has someone to help him deal with the terrible grief he must be feeling.

    Why don't we offer our prayers and positive thoughts for Whitney's daughter, her family and Mr. Davis, instead of all this negativity and speculation? What purpose does this serve??

    They probably had an affair together at some point, so he feels obligated. Nasty old man.

    For all the money she made Clive Davis, the least he could do would be to pickup funeral costs. My God she made him millions, if not billions. A casket, flowers and resting place won't even come close to a drop in the bucket of that money. Her label and Clive Davis could do the right thing if she is in fact broke. They'll make it up on the royalties they're earning now anyway.

    How can you make statements like this without ANY factual evidence to support it other than hersay!!?? Your statements sound like some to the supid Tea Party members who can only spew hateful statements without any shred of facts backing them up!

    Take a deep breath and say a prayer for Whitney, her family and Clive Davis. They are completely devasted by here death. Whitney was not a perfect person…who is? Look at yourself first before you begin to criticize someone else..
