During Whitney Houston’s burial at Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey on Sunday, we are hearing that Whitney Houston’s manager and sister-in-law Patricia Houston was so grief-stricken and upset that she had to be treated by paramedics…this according to music producer David Gest.
Gest tells Britain’s The Sun, “The grief was so overwhelming for Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston that she started hyperventilating at the graveside and paramedics had to be called to assist her. Pat was a brilliant manager and I remember Whitney telling me when we met in Copenhagen last March that Pat really kept her organization running smoothly. Family was important to Whitney and they have always been involved in the daily operations of her organization. Pat was not only a manager but a best friend, like another sister. Whitney told me she could always confide in Pat and nothing was ever leaked to the press.”
Pat seemed so calm cool and collected as she gave a beautiful tribute to Whitney during her sister-in-law’s funeral, but the grief must have finally hit her when it came time to bury Whit. Our thoughts are with the family as they continue to grieve. It will be only time (and lots of it) to even remotely heal the wounds of their loss.
