Was it really weird that Clive Davis thought it ok to continue on with the festivities as planned, even though Whitney Houston lay dead upstairs???. Some family members of the star Whitney Houston, are outraged that this even happened. Although right now the main focus should be about putting this tragedy to rest, people have become so focused on the additional stories surrounding it. Here is what Radaronline.com had to say:
“The mood in the suite was just that of pure shock. Bobbi Kristina was absolutely inconsolable, she was rocking back and forth on the couch, crying hysterically,” a family insider tells RadarOnline.com. “Clive was already dressed in his tux and most of Whitney’s family was already dressed for the party. There wasn’t any mention of the party proceeding or being canceled by Clive. He told Whitney’s family that they could stay in his suite as long as they needed to, and then after about 45 minutes with them, he left. He said he had to go downstairs and take care of the guests, but the family had no idea that the party was going to proceed. Whitney’s aunt, Mary Jones, was absolutely stunned that the party was going ahead, and she was very upset that it hadn’t been canceled.”
Below is the reasoning behind why Clive Davis felt the party must go on:
“I don’t have to mask my emotions. I do have a very heavy heart. I am personally devastated. She was so looking forward to tonight. My heart goes out to her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and her mother, Cissy. Whitney was a beautiful person and she had a talent beyond compare. She graced this stage with She graced this stage with her regal talent so many times. So, simply put, Whitney would have wanted the music to go on.”
After careful detail of how everything transpired, I think it was a bit unreasonable. Based on reports the body of Whitney Houston could not be moved because of the party. I think the most respectful thing to do in a situation like this would have been to tell everyone what had happened... do a prayer.. and send everyone home. Sometimes there is no other thing to do but the right thing even if it means money is involved.
Below is the statement Clive Davis issued to RadarOnline.com for his actions:
“This story is categorically false. This supposed in-person meeting never took place and Mr. Davis never left the main floor of the hotel. Mr. Davis, who is mourning the loss of his beloved Whitney, has nothing but the utmost love and respect for the entire Houston family. The evening was a heartfelt, moving musical tribute dedicated to Whitney.”
