Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston's Mother Has Slammed Clive Davis' Invitation To His Pre-Grammy Gala Party As "Obscene"

Whitney Houston’s Mom Slams Clive Davis’ Grammy Party Invite As ‘Obscene,’ Will Not Attend

Cissy Houston, mother of the late Whitney Houston has slammed her invitation to attend music industry executive host Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Awards Gala party as “disgusting.”

The annual gala event will take place at The Beverly Hilton hotel in California, which is the same hotel where Whitney Houston died on February 11, 2012, aged 48.

The multi-grammy winning singer was found dead in a bath in Room 434 of the Hilton less then 24 hours before she was due to attend mentor Davis’ Grammy party last year.

The cause of death was recorded by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office as “Accidental Drowning” complicated by the effects of atherosclerotic heart disease, cocaine use, and other drugs including Xanax.

Now, approaching the one year anniversary of Houston’s death, Cissy is livid at what she considers Davis’ thoughtlessness.

“I got an invitation to the party — which is the most obscene thing,” Cissy told Access Hollywood in New York City on Thursday. “I don’t know why they would want me to come to the party in which she died, you know? Unheard of.”

She added: “I guess maybe he just sent me a copy for remembrance sake.”
