London: US ‘X Factor’ star Stacy Francis has revealed that Whitney Houston flew into a rage and allegedly got into a spat with her at a nightclub, just hours before her untimely death.
Houston, 48, was found dead in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Saturday afternoon, after a suspected drink and drugs overdose.
On Friday night, she had arrived at the trendy Tru Hollywood nightclub with her daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, for a pre-Grammy Awards party, hosted by her singer pal Kelly Price, at around 11pm.
Francis claims the troubled diva - high on tequila and champagne - lashed out after accusing her of trying to steal her boyfriend, Ray J.
“She was out of control… She put her hand in my face. She was screaming at me and called me a bitch. She just went crazy - like Jekyll and Hyde,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
“I turned to look at her and she pushed my forehead and turned my face away.
“I grabbed her hand and said, ‘Please don’t do this. You’re everything to me. You’re my idol, you’re a legend’.
“I was crying and screaming out, we were both screaming until eventually we were pulled apart,” she said.
