Whitney vs. The Beat
SINGER UPSET BY ON-AIR REMARKS
By Stu Bykofsky & Dan Gross
SUPERSTAR WHITNEY Houston isn't feeling the greatest love of all for 103.9
The singer has issued a complaint against the station over comments made
several weeks ago on the "Jonesy in the A.M." show.
Houston's attorney Marty Singer said Tuesday, "A claim has been made over
comments [by Jonesy] about Whitney Houston's family." Jonesy hasn't been
on-air since July 10. The station says she's on vacation.
A station source yesterday said Jonesy's remarks - concerning Houston's
daughter and Houston's brother - referenced a story Jonesy said was being
written by a supermarket tabloid.
Singer said Jonesy's remarks were "completely fabricated" and go "beyond the
scope of defamation."
Singer yesterday declined to comment further because the involved parties
are in discussions.
Attorneys for The Beat's parent company, Radio One, declined to comment.
Calls to station GM Lynn Bruder were not returned. Jonesy declined comment.
