Family Drama Over Whitney Houston's Billboard Awards Tribute!

whitney houston billboard tribute drama

Such an unbelievable shame that egos couldn't be put aside for the greater good.

Whitney Houston will be honored at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with the Millennium Award, but sources close to production have revealed that there has been all kinds of behind-the-scenes drama and complications - all because members of the late icon's family are at war over who will accept on her behalf!

Apparently, daughter Bobbi Kristina was scheduled to make a speech in honor of her mother, but sister-in-law Pat Houston was adamant about appearing in the segment as well, and put up such a stink that finally, producers relented and allowed the two to take the stage together!


We give the producers some well-deserved credit for handling this as delicately as they did, as we think we would have been much more impatient with the woman attempting to upstage the only daughter of an icon during a tribute to her life and memory only MONTHS after her tragic passing.

For shame, for shame, for shame.

    Here’s a beautiful tribute to our beloved Whitney Houston.
    John Legend and Jordan Sparks pay tribute to the late, great Whitney Houston at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Accepting the Millennium Award is Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

    I believe Pat Houston was Whitney's PR person or manager? I don't understand why she keeps being the "face" of the legendary icon Whitney Houston. All you see is Pat Houston denying facts around Whitney's death. Doing all these interviews to make a buck off of Whitney's death. I believe she has always wanted to be Whitney, now she gets to live vicariously through Whitney's legacy. Why? She has always been behind-the-scenes while Whitney was alive. Why come out now?

    Whitney's Millenium award from the Billboard Music Awards, should only be accepted by her daughter-it is the proper thing to do. From what the fans know of Whitney she was always looked at as a proper person. Yes mistakes have been made, but that comes with being a celebrity. Whitney was a powerful women! Bobbi Kristina needs to rise to her new role as keeping her 'moms' memory alive. Following in Whitney's example of stardom. I feel Pat Houston is sheltering her from being that adult women that she needs to be. It is time for Pat to "know her roll". Her roll is to support Bobbi Kristina, not overshadow her!
