Prince To Staff:

Whitney's Welcome at My Shows!

5/12/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apparently, Prince had no idea Whitney Houston had been blacklisted from his concerts ... and now, The Purple One wants everyone to know "she's always welcome 4 all of eternity."

TMZ had confirmed the ban with several sources connected to Prince's tour -- but Wednesday, Prince's manager released a statement welcoming Houston to come back whenever she wants ... insisting the singer enjoys having Houston in his audience.

One extremely connected source tells us, "Someone could have taken it upon themselves to say Whitney was banned ... but it did not come from Prince."

In fact, we're told Prince invited Whitney to hang out backstage during one of his L.A. shows.

Mother and daughter look so lovable here. Christina looks just like her father but much prettier. I'm glad that it was mistake for Whitney being banned from Prince's concerts. They (Whitney, Prince and Michael Jackson) come from the same era, and they all patronized each other.

I knew this was wrong. Both Prince and chaka invited whitney on stage and they all 3 go back as friends over 25 years. this was a low blow for TMZ to print that lie and try to hit whitney when she's down.

Prince's staff made this statement over 36hrs and bottom feeding just correct it after damage is done. How bout saying you were wrong TMZ!

How stupid. Prince doesn't even have to publicize his concerts. He can put out an announcement at 10 and his concerts will sell out by noon. You have no idea what you're talking about.

I knew that story was FAKE. Prince and Whitney have been friends for YEARS. Prince respects Whitney and Whitney respects him. Its a shame how people make up these LIES to try and tear Whitney down...

Of course Prince wouldn't ban his good friend Whitney Houston and of course officials wouldn't dare ban the Superstar without express consent from Prince.

The peasants here at TMZ are trying to drag stars like Whitney down to their own pathetic level as usual, juding them on their own terms.

Prince is an enabler than. Whitney go to rehab and get it together. Stop blaming everyone else for your bad habits.

Why should TMZ look stupid? I bet Prince did ban her after she embarrassed herself singing with him and Chaka, but felt bad afterwards. What can I say the guy does have a heart. This is a stupid article anyway. Wouldn't it have been better for Whitney's people to deny she was back on drugs-oh wait
