Rape Allegation At Whitney's Home...

MTV: Whitney Houston Issues Statement After Woman Claims Rape Occurred In Houston Home

A 19-year-old woman told police that she was raped by an unidentified "rap singer" at Whitney Houston's New Jersey mansion over the weekend.

The woman, who said that attack occurred either late Saturday or early Sunday, told police that the rapper was using Houston's home studio to make a record.

Neither Houston (who is currently touring in Europe) nor her husband Bobby Brown (who is said to be in Beverly Hills) were at the home at the time of the attack.

Houston's camp released a statement concerning the incident on Monday afternoon saying, "Whitney Houston has no knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the alleged rape.

She had not yet returned from Germany when the incident is said to have taken place. Ms. Houston was finishing up her European tour in Aschaffenberg, Germany with a benefit concert for UNICEF on Saturday July 11. She is hopeful that anyone with pertinent information will cooperate with local authorities, and is concerned for anyone who may have been injured."

The Morris County prosecutor's office, which is handling the case, had not returned calls for comment at the time we went to press.
