won't have + smb + do/doing

  1. I won’t have you telling me what to do.
    2) I won’t have people talk to me like that.

    In the “won’t have + object + verb form” structure, which form is the more correct in modern usage?
    I’ve encountered a diversity in form in grammar books.

    Thanks…

You’ve encountered diversity because both forms are common.
I won’t have people telling me what to do.
I won’t have people talking to me like that.
are probably the ones you would encounter most often, but as you’ve discovered, these are possible:
I won’t have people tell me what to do.
I won’t have people talk to me like that.

Beeesnees,
“I won’t have people telling me what to do.”
In the above sentence ‘telling’ is used as a gerund or a present participle?

A good question!..
For my money, it’s a gerund . But I would like to get an exact answer from experts…

Alan,
Could you please answer my query?

Alan,
I am bringing my query to your kind attention.

For my money, no-one knows the exact answer :frowning:

I won’t have you telling me what to do.

Dear TEACHER!

   Is the word in bold gerund or present participle?..
