Whitney Houston Reportedly Broke

When Whitney Houston first burst onto the music scene, she was slated for a lifetime of stardom and success. In 2001, the singer signed a $100 million record with label Arista/BMG- it was the biggest record deal in history. Reports are surfacing that Houston, who has in the past battled with drug addiction, has blown through her entire fortune. Sources claim the songbird is flat-out broke and is being supported by advance payments made to her by her record label for her next album, which reportedly does not even have a release date yet. Of course, her reps are strongly denying these claims – no surprise there! Hopefully her upcoming film Sparkle to be released this summer will bring in the big bucks. Didn’t you almost have it all, Whitney?
