M.C. Hammer Almost Married Whitney Houston
M.C. Hammer said he considered marrying Whitney Houston after alleged pleas from her father to settle down with the legendary singer.
Whitney was performing The Star-Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl in 1991 when her father approached M.C. Hammer to make the proposal.
“Whitney’s dad pulled me and Whitney in a room and said, ‘You know Hammer, you should really consider marrying Whitney.’ And, I said, ‘I’d love to but I’m already married,’” Hammer told In The Mixx host Gina Glickman Giordan.
“I love my wife dearly but, I always laughed about that. Always a big fan of Whitney. I loved Whitney and miss her dearly.“
