Clive Davis has come out as bisexual in a recent interview with Katie Couric. The very private music mogul, who has worked with Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, admitted to the talk-show host that he does happen to find men very attractive, but reassures that he’s not a gay man, he still loves women, – he shares an equal love for both of them.
The room in which Whitney Houston passed away in has been turned into a broom closet, according to new reports. The legendary singer, who passed away in February 2012, had been staying in Room 434 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in preparation for last year’s Grammy Awards but she never made it to the event, losing her life just one day before the bash.
Larry Hagman – The iconic actor lost his battle with cancer on November 23rd. Not only was he the star of the Dallas reboot, but of the original hit series. And if you watch TV Land, you’ll also see him as the beloved master of the Genie on I Dream of Jeannie.
Was Whitney Houston murdered? Well, Yes, according to this week’s issue of The National Enquirer. A famous Hollywood private investigator, Paul Huebl is adamant that he has unequivocal video evidence proving that the late diva was murdered.
According to Paul she was murdered is based on hotel surveillance video supposedly showing unknown men showing up to her Beverly Hills Hilton hotel. The PI claims that Whitney was the victim of drug dealers and that her drug debt had reached a shocking $1.5 million. Apparently, the high powered drug lord sent his lackeys in to clear her debt by killing her in her hotel room.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of recently deceased Whitney Houston, will receive her inheritance as planned. A few weeks ago, we reported right here on Hollywood Hiccups that Cissy Houston, Bobbi’s grandma, attempted to stop Bobbi from inheriting the estimated $20 million. Cissy and Pat Houston, co-executors of Whitney’s estate, filed legal papers to alter Bobbi’s inheritance, citing that it was “too much, too soon.”
Unfortunately for Cissy and Pat, Bobbi will receive her $20 million inheritance in three separate installments. She will receive 10% of that money the day she turns 21 – that’s an estimated $2 million. She will then receive 20% the day she turns 25 – that’s an estimated $4 million. The remainder of the money will be paid over into Bobbi’s account when she turns 30, an estimated $16 million. According to TMZ, “[T]he case has been dismissed after Bobbi and Cissy reached an agreement. Whitney’s original plan for the payout was virtually unchanged.”
Whilst the battle for the inheritance payout was discussed, Cissy and Pat cited that Bobbi “is a highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from respondent’s resources and celebrity.” They were also terrified that Bobbi’s inheritance would take her down the same road as her mother – addicted to alcohol and drugs. Last week, Cissy and Pat appeared on “The View” to discuss their new Lifetime reality television show “The Houstons: On Our Own”. During this interview, Cissy explained to Barbara Walters and Sheri Shepherd that Bobbi’s discipline is a work in progress. “She’s not in trouble as it relates to drinking. I had concern sitting there watching her. I don’t like it at all. But this was her reality, even before her mother passed. I don’t like it, but we’re working on it. She’s growing…we’re seeing her more; we’re dealing with life management skills as it relates to Bobbi Kristina.”
We’re pleased to hear that Bobbi’s inheritance issues have been sorted out. We’d like to hear your thoughts on the matter, so let us know in the comments below what you think of Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance. Is it too much, too soon?

Britney Spears has gushed about how much she admired the late Whitney Houston, who passed away in February, at a tribute event held for the singer earlier this week. Britney who had been in talks to perform at the event but later on bailed out, recalled the day she was fortunate enough to meet the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer, saying she was so excited before adding that the meaning of her songs could be felt through the radio.
The X Factor judge told Access Hollywood: ”I did actually at the World Music Awards in Monaco. I was maybe 17 years old. I just remember being so excited! I was just like, ‘Oh my God it’s Whitney Houston, oh God!’ I was really excited. I just felt her voice alone said so much in every song she sang and through the radio you could feel her emotion and the type of person she is and what she’s gone through. She’s just someone to really admire.”
Britney was said to have collaborated with Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am on an untitled single which the singer will debut during the live shows of X Factor next month. When being questioned if the rumors were true that the two had been in the studio together.
Spears confirmed it, saying: ”It’s coming out soon. You just have to hear it – he’s just like a radical genius scientist [in the studio]. Just to be able to do a song with him is really fun.”
Whitney Houston was the greatest pop singer of all time. She defined an entire generation of music lovers with her powerful falsettos, massive range and undeniable star quality. Unfortunately for the world of music, Whitney passed away very suddenly earlier this year and left the world mourning her sudden passing. No-one was in greater shock than Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
According to a latest TMZ report, Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mother, fears for Bobbi Kristina’s life – the reason she is withholding Bobbi’s multi-million dollar inheritance. According to a source close to the situation, Cissy is withholding Bobbi’s millions due to “numerous negative influences”. Allegedly, Cissy is terrified that Bobbi’s boyfriend Nick Gordon and father Bobby Brown will suck the entire fund dry “given half the chance”. Cissy is also afraid that Bobbi’s impressionable 19-years of age will lead her to destroy her life with the unchecked millions of dollars and that Bobbi could go off the rails and die an early death.
Bobbi is expected to receive a cool $20 million – a fortune built on royalties, music appearances and sales by her mother. Cissy wants to keep this massive fortune until Bobbi matures enough to use the money wisely. This week, Cissy and Whitney’s sister-in-law Pat Houston, filed a request to modify the will in order to change the “distribution schedule of the estate”. Cissy has since denied any “hoarding of the money” and claims that she’s attempting to protect her family.
We’ve seen many entertainment families completely fall apart over a will – just take a look at the crazy Jackson bunch – so we’re not blaming Whitney’s mother and sister-in-law for attempting to seal the fortune and disperse it at own discretion. Bobbi is just not in the correct state of mind so soon after her mother’s death and such a massive amount of money will only cause Bobbi to waste her mother’s legacy on a manner of devious things.
What do you think? Do you think Bobbi should get her money? Let us know in the comments below.
