Clive Davis Begged Whitney Houston to Get Help

by

In the Clive Davis documentary,  “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives,” Clive reveals a letter he wrote to Whitney Houston, begging her to get help.

“Dearest Whitney,

When I saw you Friday night at the Michael Jackson concert I gasped. When I got home, I cried. My dear, dear Whitney, the time has come. Of course I know you don’t want to hear this. Of course I know that you’re saying that Clive is being foolishly dramatic. Of course I know that your power of denial is in overdrive dismissing everything I and everyone else is saying to you. … I join your mother in pleading with you to face up to the truth now, right now, and there is no more time or postponement. You need help and it must begin now. I will stand by you with love and caring to see you through it to newfound peace and happiness in every way as a woman, as a mother, as a role model to inspire the rest of the world.

Love, Clive.”

Wow. Needless to say we know what happened.
