Before she passed away tragically in February 2012, Whitney Houston had been a good friend of Tyler Perry's. Whitney was open with him about her struggles and addiction, and, as her friend, Tyler wanted to help Whitney in any way he could -- and he certainly tried. But his attempts to help couldn't save the troubled singer.
In this clip from Tyler's upcoming appearance on "Oprah's Next Chapter," he opens up about his friendship with Whitney and reveals how he tried to help her through her addiction, beginning with the first moment she spoke candidly with him while the two were dining at a restaurant.
"I felt a huge responsibility for her," Tyler says. "From the first day we sat down in that restaurant and had a conversation where she was so open with me, I felt a responsibility to do all I could to help her."

Everyone has had the experience of sitting next to an annoying person on a long plane flight.
But has anything ever been as bad as a woman singing Whitney Houston's classic song, "I Will Always Love You"? Keep in mind, the woman didn't just sing this love anthem once -- she sang it repeatedly, to the point where the plane was forced to make an emergency landing.
The American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York City was diverted to an emergency landing, where law enforcement personnel escorted the woman away. Frighteningly, the woman was still singing her ode to Whitney as she exited the aircraft. There is no word as to whether the woman was drunk or otherwise incapacitated at the time.
Although it's fortunate that there is a video to record this insanity, the person behind the footage might want to stay quiet. There are plenty »
