Stacy Francis Addresses Whitney Houston Fight
Stacy Francis is more than ready to move on from the Whitney Houston controversy that’s followed her for the past few years. As you know, the singer and Celebrity Big Brother cast mate and Houston had a rumored cat fight, just two days before her tragic death. The situation went down in 2012. Houston, who was in a rumored on/off relationship with singer and reality star Ray J at the time, got into an alleged altercation, with the X Factor US star after she discovered the pair talking in a nightclub. Stacy is now opening up about the situation, detailing what went down, how she reacted and how she has since forgiven Ray J. She explains,
In 2012 I had an awkward run-in with the voice and diva Whitney Houston. As most of the world already knows! Now what the world was not aware of at the time was the fact that I had been singing all my life and Whitney was my idol. I have talked about this situation in the media. And on television. And I have been attacked for addressing it. I have been accused of using this awful situation to get attention. But lets talk straight here. Who wants this kind of attention?! I mean seriously. Who wants to be known for having a fight with an idol? And who in the world wants to be trending on twitter about it? Not me!
I am not writing this piece to talk about details of that night. Too many times it has been spoken about and it has been misunderstood. And there are many lies that have been told about it. People starve for drama. They starve of the sensationalism that the media can happily sell them. I grew up listening to Whitney and I loved her. This is not exciting. It is not exciting to report that my life meant something. Instead it was reported by her sister-in-law that I was stalking her in the club. She told Oprah. I mean this couldn’t have gone more awry! I love Oprah! I watched her for 25 years. I love her! What? This is what she would know me for? I was singing that night at the club. Whitney stood and talked to me for hours. Do you see where this all just goes wrong?
My life was ruined. I felt like a big piece of me had also died. No one wanted to work with me.
