“Whitney, I love you baby. It’s not like that. Calm down, you’re causing a scene.”
You guys remember the “old” mom from this year’s X-Factor, Stacy Francis, don’t you? Here’s a refresher if you didn’t:
“She [Whitney] ran over to them [Ray J and Stacy Francis] and began screaming, ‘This is my man! I’m a cougar! B*tch, get away from my man,’” a source told us. Ray J tried to calm her down, telling Houston that Francis was a “longtime family friend” but Houston still pointed and screamed.
“The other artists in the area tried to surround them so that people wouldn’t begin coming into the area where they were and taking photos or video,” the source explained.
Francis tried to calm Houston down, too. “Whitney, I love you baby. It’s not like that. Calm down, you’re causing a scene,” she pleaded. Houston then shoved Francis in her forehead and Francis shoved her back.
“The other singers had to jump in and separate them. People were pleading for Whitney to chill out. It was embarrassing,” the source disclosed.
My God. She shoved Whitney Houston. Back. Can you imagine? After Houston was found dead, however, Stacy Francis found a whole bunch of remorse somewhere in the back of her closet and sent a message out on her Twitter, saying how deeply she regretted getting into the altercation with the late singer:
This is a sad time for me. I loved Whitney Houston with all my heart. She was such an amazing musical influence for me.
I deeply regret the events that led to Thursday’s misunderstanding, but I respect and love her more than I can say.
At this painful time, I would like to express my support and most sincere condolences to Whitney’s family in learning of her sudden death. I will always remember her to be a deeply humane person and wish her spirit to rest in peace.
Wow. I’m still stuck on shoving Whitney Houston. Who shoves Whitney Houston? That either takes some serious balls or some serious stupidity or, you know, just some serious trash. I’m not saying that Whitney was blameless in the spat, because I don’t think that just because someone’s dead that they should be canonized and all of their bad behavior in their lives go away, but damn. Is this how things normally go down behind the scenes between the “new” fame and the “old” fame?
The same eyewitnesses claim that the incident happened the same night that Whitney was spotted leaving a club intoxicated, photographed with blood running down her leg. What a mess. It’s no wonder Whitney looked as pissed off as she did that night.
