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.

Sad to see. A person takes a drug and the drug takes the person.

He allowed her onstage here and was very complimentary even after she left:

Another 7 gram rock star from Mars taking her planet to orbit with her. Sad and pathetic. Whitney's done and her daughter's on her way.

Big deal! Mother and daughter having a good time at a concert. I expected her to be falling down drunk. I didn't see a thing wrong with that - go to any concert and you'll see the same thing all over the venue. Mountain out of a mole hill.

My dad was a narcotics cop in NJ and constantly was arresting her brother 30 years ago. Everyone blames Bobby Brown? I will tell you that she was surrounded with drugs long before he entered the picture.

Frankly I didn't see anything wrong with their behavior at this concert either. Of course I realize she's re-entered rehab but as far as this one video clip, I just don't think you could use this as any measure of whether she or her daughter were high or not.

Yeah Judi, I watched the clip. What do you do at a concert? Just stand there? Yeah they were acting goofy & dancing. So what? If you know anything about Whitney Houston then you know she enjoys attention. The video clip in & off itself certainly, to me, wasn't any sort of confirmation of intoxication but given the 'other' details that seem to be swirling around, Whitney definitely has relapsed. What I find interesting however is that the only sites reporting Prince has 'banned her from future concerts' seem to be just the gossip rags such as TMZ.

Haz'been skank who ruined her own life by becoming a junkie. Too bad, so sad. Don't care what she does, as long as she just goes away forever.
