Whitney Houston’s former associate Kevin Ammon penned a book titled Good Girl, Bad Girl in which he details a 1991 incident involving Nippy, her family and three racist white men in Lexington, Kentucky.
It all went down when Houston, her brother Michael and friend Robyn went to the Radisson Plaza Hotel lounge to watch the Evander Holyfield-George Foreman fight.
As ILOSM reports:
When the crowd saw Whitney, they surged around her, but her bodyguard informed them that Whitney wasn’t signing autographs, she just wanted to relax and watch the boxing match.
Apparently, three Caucasian men took offense to that. The three men were seated near Whitney’s table, laughing and joking loudly as they watched Whitney. Then all hell broke loose after the men brought race into the equation.
The site goes on to source PanacheR: Whitney had enough. She had tried to ignore them and watch the fight but they wouldn’t leave her alone. She said, “Come on, let’s get out of here. We can watch the fight in our rooms.”
Everyone went their separate ways and Whitney, Michael and Robyn took the elevator up to their rooms. When they got off at their floor, the same three men were waiting for them, insisting that Whitney give them her autograph. Michael told them to back off and one of them threw a punch at Michael.
He punched back… the guys‘ friend’s jumped in and racist slurs started flying. One of the men called Whitney a “stuck-up nig&er bitch,” and that’s when Michael lost it.
Fists were flying and Whitney jumped on the back of one of the men and began slugging him and then she delivered a solid blow to his jaw, knocking him off Michael.
Eventually, somebody called the police and broke up the fight. Then the three men had the nerve to file a lawsuit against Whitney and Michael, blaming them for assault, but of course that didn’t stick and the lawsuit was dismissed.
