Whitney Houston was well-known for her close ties to her family and friends. However, her relationship with her father, John Russell Houston, was tumultuous. Though they were extremely close at first, their relationship deteriorated after the late businessman sued his celebrity daughter in 2002.
Whitney Houston Dad company, John Houston Entertainment, sued Whitney Houston in New Jersey Superior Court in August 2002 for breach of contract. According to MTV News, the singer hired her father and his business partner to assist her in various personal and professional problems in 2000, according to the lawsuit. This included assisting her with the legal issues after her drug bust in Hawaii in 2000. In 2001, the business reportedly negotiated her contract renewal with Arista Records, resulting in a $100 million deal for the singer.
Houston told Diana Sawyer in an interview a month after the lawsuit made headlines in October 2002 that she still loved her father despite their legal battle. “They’ll never get $100 million out of me,” she swiftly added. According to E! News, “I know that.” A few days later, in a public plea from his hospital bed, The Bodyguard star’s father urged her to settle the case. According to Billboard, he declared on the syndicated television show Celebrity Justice, “You get your act together, honey.” “You must give me the money you owe me.” You won’t face a lawsuit if you do that.”
Houston is noted for her powerful, soulful vocals and vocal improvisation skills, and she has impacted many singers in popular music. From “Saving All My Love for You” in 1985 to “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” in 1988, she is the only artist to achieve seven consecutive number-one songs on the Billboard Hot 100.
