Chaka Khan Criticizes Clive Davis For Hosting Grammy Party, Blames Whitney Houston’s Death on ‘The Dangerous People’

Whitney Houston was scheduled to perform at Clive Davis’ famous Grammy Award party the night that she died in a Beverly Hills hotel. Chaka Khan criticized Davis for putting pressure on Houston to perform and for hosting the party despite Houston’s death.

CNN reports that when he heard of Houston’s death he told his guests that the late singer would have wanted the party to continue. Davis told party goers:

“I am personally devastated by the loss of someone who has meant so much to me for so many years. Whitney was so full of life. She was so looking forward to tonight, even though she wasn’t scheduled to perform…Whitney was a beautiful person and a talent beyond compare…She gave so many memorable performances over the years. Simply put, she would have wanted the music to go on and her family asked that we carry on.”

But Chaka Khan doesn’t agree. On Piers Morgan Tonight, Chaka Khan called Clive Davis’ decision to throw the party as scheduled insane. Khan said:

“I thought that was complete insanit… And knowing Whitney, I don’t believe she would’ve said, the show must go on. She’s the kind of woman who would’ve said, ‘Stop everything, I’m not going to be there.’”

Khan went on to say that Davis’ party was partly responsible for Houston’s death. Khan insinuated that Houston, who had a history of drug use, may have fell back into her old ways due to the “dangerous people” in the entertainment industry.

Khan said:

“Whoever flew her out to perform at that party, should have provided someone to be there. To somehow, keep the riff-raff out of the situation. To keep the dangerous people away.”

Whitney Houston famously covered Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman” in 1993. Here’s Whitney’s version of the famous Chaka Khan song.

    The blame is not on anyone, because Whitney said in her interview with Diana Sawyer. Nobody can make her do anything she don't want to do. We can't even blame Bobby, even thou he may have been the one who introduced her to the demon of drugs. She had her on mind, and she made her own choices and some of them just was the wrong ones. We all have done that; it's just that hers may have lead her to her death. Truly only God knows it all.

    may the peace of GOD be with the family. now is not the time to blame it's a time to pray and know that God see all and knows all and that nothing happen unless he allow meaning earth has no sorrow heaven can not heal.to the Houston family trust GOD lean on him trust me your going to need him now those pain s of heart can really break you down there are days you are going to really have to call on him for strength. I promise you he will be there you are not alone. when you feel the pain of missing her so deeply as if to the core of your stomach cry loud to him and hold on each day will get better and better. LORD knows I've been there in 2010 after love of my life drowned and had to go home and be with the LORD it seem as if it was yesterday the pain sub side but it still creep up every now and then but GOD reminds me every time I"m still with you and him. I will never leave you nor forsake you. but I leave the Family with this thought. All of us has a day we don't know when that's why it's it so very important that GOD is ruler of our life and Jesus is savior of our soul.then whenit seem imbearable at times like this.Jesus promise he went away to prepare a place for us and he will return back for us letting us know there is a better place for after this earthly life.it time for us to repent confess our sins and turnfrom our wicked ways and except Jesus as our personal Savior for GOD has trusted him with everything even the power to raise us from the dead to that new home in Heaven.so let's reach out to the lost souls compelling them to come to Jesus while the breath is still breeze and the blood is still running in our vains. Love every body and make peace and pray that the LORD Wills be done on earth as well as it is in Heaven. May the LORD smile and keep the family lifted in there sorrow. Whitney GOD LOVES YOU MORE. Family GOD makes know mistakes it was just her time to go we all will miss her until we meet again.

    I ALWAYS SAY WHEN SOMEONE SUCCUMBS TO HARM, WY ISn't A RELATIVE OR A TRUE FRIEND AROUND TO KEEP THEM SAVE FROM THEMSELVES. I SAID WHEN MICHAEL DIED, HE HAD ALOT OF BROTHERS, COULDN'T ONE OF THEM WORK AS HIS PROTECTOR AND NOT ALLOW THE DRUG PUSHERS, PILL PUSHERS TO GET NEAR THEM. WHITNEY WAS IN THE TUB, WHO WAS THERE TO WATCH OVER HER. I'M SURE FAMILY HAD TO KNOW SHE WAS IN DANGER, THEY SAID AFTER HER DEATH SHE HAD BEEN ACTING STRANGE, DOING CARYWHEELS ECT……DIDn't SHE HAVE ANYONE AROUND HER WHO REALLY CARED TO KEEP HER SAFE? ITS JUST TRAGIC.

    I read that her good bodyguard quit work for her cuz he couldn't protect her anymore from her self so she hired a family member of bobby browns, and they let her have what ever she wanted and the old body guard said that's not protecting her at all from the the things she needed to be protected from.

    Chaka Khan can kiss my white ass. Were has she been for the last 20 years. Let her go crawl back under the rock she has been living under.

  7. Cynthia Pugh Singleton

    I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD PUT THE BLAME ON ANYBODY FOR THE DEATH OF OUR "BELOVED WHITNEY". WE AS INDIVIDUAL MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES IN LIFE AND FOR LIFE…SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING INSPITE OF ALL THE UGLY ACCUSATIONS. LET HER SOUL AND SPIRIT REST IN PEACE…LOVE YOU ANGEL VOICE! R.I.P.
