Music mogul Clive Davis is praying for his troubled artist Whitney Houston as she battles a drug addiction - and describes this part of her life as one of "turmoil".

J RECORDS boss Davis has left the I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU singer to her own devices as she fights her substance-abuse addiction.

Davis says, "I discovered Whitney Houston when she was 19 years old, and we have shared thrilling milestones for the past 16 years.

"This part of her life right now is one of stress, turmoil and rehabilitation.

"I pray for her, but I won't interfere. It's her business."
