Whitney Houston -- Banned From Prince Shows

5/10/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston has lost her Prince privileges ... because sources tell TMZ the Purple One's people became so fed up with her erratic behavior and constant ticket demands ... that she is no longer allowed at his shows.

According to our Prince sources, Whitney attended several Prince concerts in the last few weeks and appeared to be "intoxicated" at each show -- though our sources never saw Whitney drink alcohol or take drugs. 

We're told Whitney was constantly badgering Prince's staff to let her up on the stage ... but Team Prince shot her down multiple times because P's people "didn't want her to embarrass herself."

Our sources say Whitney's erratic behavior, coupled with repeated and excessive ticket demands became too much for Prince -- and his team ultimately banned Houston from his concerts.

0509_sloppy_signs_videoAs TMZ first reported, Houston is receiving treatment in an out-patient rehab program for ongoing drug and alcohol problems.

Calls to Houston's people have not been returned.

Whitney and her Daughter are mess. They both ended up junkies and are enabling each other. Sad.

this is sad proof of what drugs can do to a person. I always heard that saying... you dont do drugs, drugs do you. it is so true. people if u r on drugs, please seek help. please realize what drugs do to a family and do to oneself.

I don't blame Prince. I mean, what else can you do when a former A-List singer goes crackhead and wears out her welcome? Whitney fried too many brain cells during the Bobby years...she's in danger of singing the "Good Times" theme song as a women's room attendant in a seedy Vegas casino.

It's so sad to see one of the most amazing voices of our time lost to drug abuse. Nothing that amazing about Lindsay Lohan, but she's certainly headed in the same direction. 10 years ago, Whitney Houston was considered one of the most consistent powerful voices in Music. Even if you didn't like her music, you have to give the woman her respect for her vocals. Now she's just become cliche'

Didn't know attending 2 shows was several. Bobby Brown to a show solo n actually was more of a hassle than Whitney by the way.

make that 20 years ago hoopee--10 years ago she was already a has-been, remember the MJ 30 year celebration performance and the "crack is whack" interview. . . .Whitney was done by the early mid 90s.

i will add, however--that she could give a good performance now and then--the VH1 Diva show in '99 for example--unlike now, but she was by no means a consistent performer after '95--in fact I remember everyone holding their breath whenever she walked on stage for a live television performance because she was so consistently erratic. . . .

What a fine example she's setting for her (ugly) daughter. Sad also that she's trying to be friends, instead of a parent. Houston had such promise in the begining, and look what she did with all that talent? Pissed it away.

Getting married to that pimp/junky/slacker Bobby Brown, who got her turned on to drugs in the first place and tried to kill her with them so that he could ride the gravy train to fame on her coffin, was the worst thing she ever did.

She was doing drugs before she hooked up with Brown, don't blame him, one of her brothers is a well known junkie he probably was the one that got her started. She could have seen the effect on her brother and sad NO...Now her little girl is into the same thing.
