Clive davis – the music mogul who shaped the careers of Whitney houston, Aretha Franklin, Kelly clarkson and many others – has been diagnosed with Bell’s palsy … TMZ has confirmed.
According to his representative … Clive is being treated with antibiotics and steroids but is expected to make a full recovery in the next 6 weeks. Bell’s palsy, which is a muscle weakness that causes part of the face to droop, has so far not affected Clive’s speech.
Clive, who is famous for his Grammy parties, had originally planned a pre-Grammys gala party on Zoom scheduled for next month … but those plans will now move later this spring, according to ShowBiz 411, which first reported the news about Clive’s diagnosis.
For young kids … Clive Davis is a HUGE deal in the business. In addition to discovering Whitney, he also founded Bad Boy Records with Sean Combs.
He was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 in the category of non-artists. And the 200-seat theater at the Grammy Museum is named after him.
