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.

I read when Britney Spears was going through the worst of her troubles Mel did the same thing and spent a lot of time with Britney and being someone she could talk to. I didn't know he did the same thing for Whitney for a time. Well that's very nice to know and it shows that Mel has a heart.

While the Mel haters heart is black, love to hold on to hate,and be an azzhole towards Mel and others. Mel is nice, kind, helpful, and has a heart of GOLD.

Mel has tried to help many people behind the scenes. He's not a bad guy, he has a very big heart that some people have taken advantage of and he still trys to help people.

I rather kiss Mel's ass ANYTIME,rather than your Demonbrat jackass butt, dude. As for Mel and I having a lot in common. We both are nice, kind, helpful towards others. Fun loving with a good sense of humor. We have to have that to put with people like you!!

In my opinion the reason Hollywood has been so unforgiving to Mel is because of the enormous power Jews have in media. Roman Polanski, Mark Zuckerburg, Sergey Brin, Larry Page all have enormous power in their fields, Mel insulted powerful people. I'm not anti Jewish just giving my opinion.
