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.

Good for Prince. I don't blame him one bit. Somebody has to keep this train wreck from embarrassing herself any more than she already has. Isn't it amazing that people on alcohol or drugs seem to have no idea how bad they are acting or how much they are embarrassing themselves. I give Prince credit for holding his ground and not letting her embarrass herself yet again. She looks like hell, sounds like hell and acts like an idiot. That poor daughter of hers will probably grow up to do exactly the same thing Whitney does. Drugs & Alcohol.

Its so sad to see someone who had so much fall so hard to the grown. if this isnt an eye opener then im not sure what it. whittney been threw alot and turned to drugs every time. rather then getting help, the drugs only made her worse

Thank U SandeeBee, she has the rep of being harder than Bobby ever was! I blame show biz how many lives has it ruined, then they turn their backs on the artist and get someone younger to start the whole ugly process over again.

I was at the show last week where Chaka Khan AND Prince each independently INVITED Whitney up on stage and each handed her a microphone asking her to sing with them. And each gave praise after. In addition the crowd went nuts when she joined them. Ridiculous story.

Prince has not banned Whitney from his concerts...all rumors. He has respect for Whitney, maybe he encouraged her to seek treatment since she did enter rehab just days after performing on stage with him...just a thought.

It is real sad that Whitney and Bobby passed their drug problems onto their child, some people just should not have childrena and they are a perfect example of that. As for Whitney in this video I feel sorry for her, she is crying out for some attention from anyone and making a fool out of herself in the process. I think her career has been over for a very long time. Talent gone to waste.

If you guys don't think her and her daughter are high, you're as delusional as Whitney.

Even Bobby Brown is shocked at Whitney being back on drugs. lol

I don't know who came up with this out-patient rehab crap but is just a waste of time. Whitney needs to be in a SERIOUS rehab facility for at least 90 days or more. Girl lost her voice to drugs so you know she's into them heavy duty and needs heavy duty treatment to get off of them.

Maybe Charlie "Crackhead" Sheen could teach Whitney how to "blink" her addiction to drugs away. lol. I wish her well though.

What's wrong with this video of Whitney and other person having fun at a concert? I'm not talking about her crack addiction. I'm talking about this video TMZ posted of Whitney having fun at a concert. What's so bad about that? I've been to roughly 75 concerts in my lifetime and that's exactly what I do when I see my favorite band or singer. Believe me, I don't just sit there quiet like. I sing and dance. TMZ, this is just unnecessary footage of her, in other words, just a low blow!
