Whitney Houston is being forced to sell off clothes, instruments and sound equipment to pay a debt to a warehouse storing the items.
Life is getting more and more difficult these days for Whitney Houston. After getting through rehab and divorce battle, the Grammy-winning pop star is now forced to sell her things as an attempt to pay debt.
The sale, to be held at A.J. Willner Auctions on January 9, has been ordered by the New Jersey Superior Court. The things to be sold among others include, hundreds of her stage costumes, intimate apparel, and other personal belongings.
"Whitney is selling off at auction old tour equipment that is no longer in use. Part of the proceeds will go to pay a debt owed to the storage company in keeping with court order," Houston's publicist, Nancy Seltzer, said in a statement while adding, "It is not unusual for an artist to sell off old equipment and costumes no longer needed."
In addition to all the stuffs, Houston also is selling off her musical instruments and props used in her stage shows, including pianos, keyboards, organs, drums, designer hats, shoes and outfits from well-known names.
