Ex junkie Whitney Houston is going to get paid $2.8 million dollars for a one hour performance at the Cauldwell Children Legends Ball at the Battersea Evolution arena on May 8. That's a lot of cheddar yo!
Houston was hired by billionaire philanthropist John Caudwell to give the rare one-hour performance.
A source said: "Mr. Caudwell thinks it is important to raise the profile of the Cauldwell Children charity and stars such as Whitney Houston are the sort of people he's hoping to attract."
After spending that much money, the only thing he should be "hoping" for is that she shows up and actually gets on stage to sing. She's hasn't exactly been reliable lately.
