Whitney Houston was an eternally loyal friend, says Clive Davis

Washington: Clive Davis said that despite Whitney Houston’s own troubles she was always there for him whenever he needed her. Davis spoke at her funeral on Saturday and talked about her life, only briefly mentioning her troubles with drug addiction.

“Yes, she admitted to crises in her life. Yes, she confessed to Oprah about her searing battles. But when I needed her she was there. She was there for me, an eternally loyal friend,” he said.

“Whatever the cause or event, she was there dominating the stage, stunning an audience and creating still another lifetime memory. ‘I Believe In You And Me’she sang, looking me straight in the eye, showing she knew we’ve always been in it together. Yes, I was her industry father and I was and am so proud of it,” he said.
