Whitney Houston overdosed on cocaine and then drowned and died in Beverly Hills in February and her ex-husband, Bobby Brown, claims he was taken by surprise by the whole thing. Notwithstanding his recent DUI conviction Bobby claims he has been clean for seven years and was shocked to discover Whitney was still taking drugs. Well we don’t believe that Bobby has been clean for seven years and we really don’t believe that he didn’t know Whitney was still hooked on drugs… and we have proof!
Bobby told Today’s Matt Lauer: “It’s just unexplainable… how one could, you know, (say that I) got her addicted to drugs. I’m not the reason she’s gone.”
“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.”
But there is big problem with Bobby’s story about not knowing that Whitney was still struggling with drug addiction. It was claimed after Whitney’s death that she and Bobby had been planning to remarry in Las Vegas. Whitney had apparently wanted to reunite with her former husband of 14 years and the pair had decided on an intimate ceremony with their daughter Bobbi Kristina as the only witness.
Derrick Handspike wrote Bobby’s biography and said: “Bobby told me, ‘Whitney and me are getting married again.’”
“They were planning a small wedding, probably in Las Vegas with just the two of them and their daughter Krissi. Bobby told me, ‘The world may have thought we were history, but the reality is we were never really apart. We’ve never stopped loving each other.’”
“After his dad’s funeral in Boston in December he flew to Atlanta. For the next week Bobby holed up at Whitney’s home, where they rekindled their romance and their intimate relationship. They slept together in Whitney’s bedroom and talked about what kind of wedding they’d have.”
Well if it is true that Bobby and Whitney spent a week together ‘holed up’ at her place in December then he was well aware that Whitney was still using cocaine and other drugs. There is no way that someone with Bobby’s long experience of drug abuse can live with an active addict for a week and not know they are using. So either Bobby is lying about his reconciliation with Whitney or he is lying about not knowing that she was still hooked on drugs. Of course the scoundrel could be lying about both matters.
