An Emmy Award won by Whitney Houston 30 years ago, is the center of a legal battle between an auction house and Emmy organizers. The Television Academy is suing to stop Whitney Houston’s heirs from selling her Emmy statuette, they feel the sale would tarnish the award and it would violate academy rules.

The Academy claims the statuette is not actually Houston’s property; the awards are loans, not gifts.

Members of the Houston family claim, many Emmy winners have sold statuettes in the past with no problems. They feel the Academy is attempting to ‘bully’ them.
