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.

#Exclusive: Prince's camp phoned me to tell me that the story about Whitney Houston being banned from his concerts is NOT TRUE! They say Whitney Houston was not drinking, using drugs or bothering Prince's staff like yesterday's report on TMZ claimed. "Prince loves Whitney & they have a friendship that goes back for years. He's upset by the false story circulating," rep said!

well there you go people. now you see what a (very)bad choice in partners can do. as the old saying goes, 'why do women always go for the brats?'. i don't know if she would have ducked the drugs without marrying bobby, but she could have still done a whole lot better. prince concerts must be really something to make someone give up drugs.

REAL TALK    

These posters are HATERS! Having fun at a concert means "you're on drugs"?? Jealous peon fleas who couldn't wait to see a legend fall in darkness so you can kick her down! But it still doesn't change her music talents and past extreme music success! CAN ANY OF YOU SAY THAT??? Grammys, movies, millions of album sales! She made it to the top! I'm definately sure most of you who attend concerts are sloppy ass drunk and brag about it the next day at work IF you have jobs!

Everyone makes mistakes... At least you don't find her daughter on MTV shows getting pregnant under the age of 16... Leave them alone.

As far as I'm concerned, for Prince or his people to make comments about Whitney "embarrasing" herslf when she wanted to sing on stage with...ARE OUT OF PLACE! I have NEVER understood why anybody at all think that PRINCE has this amazing voice! What a wierdo! He doesn't make music, what he makes is a mess and has "NO RIGHT" to judge Whitney, when her,her career, and her vocal ability surpasses Princes ant time or day!
