In an interview with “Extra,” Francis talks about the Feb. 9 tussle. She explains that “there was an exchange, but it wasn’t a violent exchange…She didn’t push me in the head…If it were not Whitney Houston, it could have been very bad.”
Francis adds more color to the event, saying, “I looked at her and she moved my face away.”
Radar Online has previously reported that Houston and Francis got into it at Hollywood’s Tru Nightclub. It appears that the cause of the ruckus was when Francis was talking to Houston’s sometimes boyfriend Ray J. But for that, Francis explains that they’re just family friends.
“It was a misunderstanding. We went back and forth for a little while, but all I kept saying to her is that ‘I love you very much and I respect you so much.’ I’ve known [Ray J’s] family for a long time. Ray is honestly like a brother to me,” Francis says.
Houston died on Feb. 11 at Beverly Hilton Hotel. The cause of her death is not yet known.
