Mel Gibson

Invited to Whitney's Funeral ...

He Tried to Save Her

Mel Gibson
was invited to Whitney Houston's funeral ... and the family extended the invite because Mel tried to help the singer during a very dark period in her life ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... several years ago, when Whitney was about as bad off with drugs and alcohol as she ever was, Mel quietly intervened and spent a lot of time with her, trying to help her break the addiction cycle.

We're told Whitney's family is "extremely appreciative" and wanted Mel at tomorrow's funeral, but because of family plans he can't attend.

Racist Mel really helped out Whitney ? WTF
He can't even take care of himself !!

What a joke to think he can help others who drink ?

I always thought you lead by example .,.,.,.but I do see the similarities here .,.,.,..,.
They both drink
They both smoke
They both have no career left

Another one of the 'many' interventions Mel's done for people. Courtney, Britney Whitney, Downey Jr and many more.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

Waving furiously at the Nelliegoo and her multiple personas.

Much as you try to make Mel sound like the bad guy, no one is buying it are they? He is still loved. People STILL see him as the good guy he is. Just look at these posts.

Neener neener sorry LOSER. You aren't paid nearly enough. :)

btw: how is that Real Doll working out for you?

Reading the comments and noticing that there are a variety of opinions and then in come the two cackling hens, Cujo and the idiots. You two stick out like sore thumbs and get more ridiculous as you go. You two haters seem to be running out of things to write and are now just throwing anything silly thought that you have on these threads. But that’s OK. You’re making it easy to prove the point that a lot have been trying to make all along that Mel has been and still is unfairly judged. You both have proven to be far far worse that Mel Gibson. At least he’s trying to move forward and be a better person and he has surely at this point paid for his mistakes. You guys on the other hand are still wallowing in your cesspool of hatred.


So once again we hear that Mel has reached out to someone to try to help. And we find out years later and we only found out because of the death of Whitney Huston and that TMZ found out that Mel was on the guest list for the funeral. Sure must bug the crap out of the haters.


If you can’t appreciate the good things that people do, then your critisizms of their faults are worth diddly squat. It shows that your brains only work in one mode and that is pure blind hatred.

If Giblitz ws such a 'GOOD FRIEND" to Whitney, why didn't fly in for her funeral fraus? Too busy sailing around Australia "3 SHEETS TO THE WIND!?!" I don't come close to being as bad as Giblitz on my "WORST DAY" so "DON'T EVEN GO THERE!!!". What he supposedly did for Whitnit was 20 YEARS AGO when he still has a somewhat " SQUEAKY CLEAN IMAGE". Maybe the reason we didn't find out about his "HELPING HAND" back then was due to the fact that he was " STILL MARRIED!!". The only reason the Houstons invited Giblitz to the funeral was because it was lacking in "STAR POWER" and they needed a few "WHITE PEOPLE" in ATTENDANCE!!! They must not have "GOTTEN THE MEMO!!!"


If the Houstons and flock think Giblitz has any " STAR POWER" left, you could benefit from some new "PRESCRIPTION GLASSES" and a BETTER "ENGLISH to PORTUGUESE" TRANSLATOR!

SEE! Here is a family that knows Mel Gibson is a good person and not what others try to make him out to be.

I hope Mel's family is doing ok.

To Whitney's family..

Your little Angel is happy and singing in Heaven.
