It's not unusual for families to fight among themselves in the wake of a tragedy, and it seems that's just what's happening with Whitney Houston's musical family in the wake of her death.

In an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, Houston's close friend Chaka Khan criticized Clive Davis' decision to carry on with his annual party hours after the news of Houston's passing, saying, "I thought that was complete insanity. I don't know what could motivate a person to have a party, in a building, where the person, whose life he had influenced so enormously, and whose life had been affected by her ... I don't understand how that party went on." She disagreed with Morgan's defense of Davis and his characterization of the event as a tribute to Houston.
