Has Whitney Houston really blown through her fortune? According to recent reports, the “I Will Always Love You” and ‘Waiting to Exhale’ star is sustaining her lifestyle only with the help of industry insiders and her record label.
“Whitney’s fortune is gone,” a source told Radar Online Monday. “Music industry heavy hitters are supporting her and her label is fronting her cash against her next album, but no one knows when that will be released.”
While Houston has not confirmed or denied talk of her fortune being wiped out, it is well known that she struggled with substance abuse issues and as of last year, sought help.
On the mend now, Houston is starring in a remake of ‘Sparkle’ and could be set for ‘Getting To Happy,’ a follow up to Waiting To Exhale.
Still, sources say “she might be homeless if not for people saving her. She is broke as a joke. She called someone to ask for $100.”
Considering ‘Sparkle’ has been shot and is due in theaters later this year, it is unlikely Houston is truly ‘broke.’
