We’ve heard Pat Hosuton say that Bobby Brown didn’t introduce Whitney Houston to drugs, we’ve heard Whitney Houston imply it, and now Bobby Brown himself is speaking out against the allegations that he’s responsible for Whitney’s drug use and ultimately her death. I don’t know how many times he has to say it or it has to be said, you cannot keep blaming this man for Whitney’s actions. Just because the media portrays them as good vs bad that does not mean that’s how either one of them lived privately. Whitney Houston’s brothers also dealt with addiction to hard drugs, and during the 80’s it sounds like it was just raining drugs. I’ll be glad when we can get past the point of reducing both of these stars, Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, as people just battling addiction. They were so much more and accomplished more than the average star.

I didn’t get high before I met Whitney … I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all …it’s just unexplainable I’m not the reason she’s gone.

 

Bobby Brown will speak out in his first interview since the death of Whitney Houston with Matt Lauer on the Today Show. Here are few excerpts from that interview via Necole Bitchie

On Accusations That He’s Responsible For Her Drug Use

[They] make me feel terrible. But you know, I know differently. I think if anyone ever knew us, if anybody ever spent time around us . . . they would know how we felt about each other. They would know how happy we were together.

The reality show gave us a wake-up. We [were] able to see that our drug use had affected our relationship, had affected the love that we felt for each other.

 

On Seeing Whitney a Week Before She Died

She had this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible. She looked really well. She just looked like she was in a good place.

 

On Whitney’s Drug Use & Not Knowing She Was Still Using

I was hurt. I was hurt … Because, you know, me being off of narcotics for the last seven years — I felt that she was, you know, I didn’t know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know– listen, it’s a hard fight. It’s a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way.

From what I feel and you know, how I saw her, the last time I saw her, it had to be that particular day. You know, it had to be that one, because that’s all it takes … One hit, you know, and you know, it could definitely take your life away from you. And, unfortunately, that was it.

 

BTW, the full interview will air tomorrow morning (Wednesday) and Thursday morning. I can’t wait to see Bobby Brown on June 29 with the rest of New Edition in concert.
