Whitney Houston
's sister-in-law -- Pat Houston -- is waging war against Bobbi Kristina because she desperately wants to accept Whitney's Billboard Music Award on her behalf ... and only BK is standing in her way.

Sources closes to the situation tell TMZ ... Pat is trying to force herself into the spotlight by accepting Whitney's Millenium Award at the ceremony in Las Vegas tonight ... and producers of the show are pissed.

We're told the show really wants BK to accept the award and make the speech on the late singer's behalf ... but Pat won't stand for it and is making life hell for them as she tries to worm her way into the segment.

Sources tell us ... the show's producers feel BK is the best choice to represent Whitney's legacy and they're convinced Pat is simply exploiting the situation to get publicity for her upcoming reality show.

Truth    

AND THIS IS WHY THE BITCH IS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE COVER-UP IN WHITNEY'S DEATH. PAT HOUSTON WAS/IS THE JEALOUS SISTA-IN-LAW AND THE **** COULDN'T WAIT FOR THE CHANCE TO BE THE ATTENTION WHORE. WE ALL KNOW THE AUTOPSY REPORT DOESNT JIVE WITH EVIDENCE AT THE SCENE - EITHER MURDER OR VERY STRONG COVER-UP AND DESTROYING OF EVIDENCE. EVEN RAFFLES HAS COME OUT AND BLAMES PAT HOUSTON AS THE ONE WHO INSTRUCTED EVERYONE TO DESTROY EVIDENCE. NO DOUBT THIS BITCH AND GARY HOUSTON HAS BEEN EMBEZZLING FUNDS FROM WHITNEY OVER THE YEARS. NOTE HOW SHE WROTE HERSELF AS THE EXECUTOR OF WHITNEY'S ESTATE. NOW THEY ARE AFTER HER FAME, WTF... #TRUTH!!

Everyone knows that Pat is S***! She sold the photo of Whitney's lifeless body with her husband, brother in-law Michael & Raffles!

She's a failed singer who is now using Whitney's death to re-start her career. Sad! This is Kristina's moment to honour her mother. Go away Pat.

Why do the producers care what Patricia her sister in law thinks? If the family won't allow the daughter to accept the award just have the presenter accept it on Whitney's behalf and be done with it. They "don't" have to allow Pat inside the venue if they think she is going try to make a scene from the audience. It's really that simple.

The daughter should accept the award, no doubt about it. The sister-in-law is just trying to grasp 15 minutes of fame at her niece's expense. She should be ashamed of herself and the producers of the awards show should put their foot down. End of story!

The fact that this family would have a reality show is ridiculous. Not a one of them has any talent. I thought this sister in law was suspect when she gave that interview to Oprah.

This is just insane. No question it should be her daughter. What the hell is Pat thinking and the producers need to grow some balls and tell Pat to knock this crap off or they'll have her arrested and banned from the award ceremony all together.

Truth    

PAT HOUSTON WAS A WANNBE SINGER WHO CRAWLED HER INTO GARY HOUSTON'S LIFE DURING HIS SEPARATION WITH EX-WIFE MONIQUE HOUSTON DURING THE MID-90'S. SHE FIGURED SHE COULD BE IN THE INNER CIRCLE OF THE HOUSTON FAM AND EVENTUALLY BE A BREAK-OUT STAR LIKE WHITNEY. INSTEAD SHE WAS LEFT TO DO OPERATIONS BEHIND THE SCENES LIKE WORKING AT NIPPY INC UNDER WHITNEY'S LATE FATHER JOHN HOUSTON'S ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY, THEN WEASLED HER WAY AS WHITNEY'S "MANAGER" AFTER HIS DEATH. NOW THAT WHITNEY'S GONE SHE HAS HER CHANCE TO BE THE FAMILY ATTENTION WHORE BY OUSTING WHITNEY'S ONLY DAUGHTER. THIS BITCH IS THE REAL CULPRIT BEHIND WHITNEY'S DEATH. SHE WAS ALSO CONSPIRING WITH RAFFLES IN SELLING TABLOID STORIES (INCLUDING DEATH SCENE PICS AND CASKET PIC) OF WHITNEY OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS. #TRUTH!!

I don't understand how someone can force their way onto a show. If you are a producer with a spine you tell that person "NO". End of story. You don't have to let anyone pick up the award if you don't want to.

Her daughter should be the one to accept the award on behalf of Whitney alternatively it could be Whitney's mother but not Pat.
It's disgusting what people would do for publicity and for money.

It should be Whitney's daughter to receive Whitney's Billboard Music Award on her behalf of her mother.
