Celebrity gossip websites ran a story last week claiming that Whitney Houston is “broke as a joke.” They even quoted an unnamed (of course) source claiming that Whitney would be homeless if not for the generosity of friends. She called someone to ask for $100, the story goes. If true, that would be quite a fall from financial grace for the singer who signed a $100 million record deal in 2001.
Whitney’s camp quickly denied the rumors and says they are “false and ridiculous“. Her rep points out that she just made a movie called Sparkle, with Jordin Sparks, and she didn’t work for free.
If Whitney is in need of money, she has another source she can pursue. Don’t be surprised to see Whitney Houston foreclose on her step-mother’s home soon.
