Bobby Brown doesn’t want the blame laid upon him for getting his former wife Whitney Houston on drugs. Right after she passed away, her throngs of fans started pointing the finger at Bobby for leading her down the path of self-destructive behavior. In a new interview with Matt Lauer, Bobby said that the accusations made him feel terrible.
He told the “Today” host, “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.”
He also spoke of their reality show saying, “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.”
The singer isn’t taking any responsibility for introducing Whitney to drugs. He revealed, “I didn’t get high before I met Whitney.” He copped to smoking weed and drinking alcohol prior to their meeting, but denies getting Whitney involved in her long-term drug issues. He said, “I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all”, adding that she had used drugs “way before” they met. He
But the “My Prerogative” singer tells Lauer it’s inaccurate to say that he introduced Houston to drugs. In fact, he says, “I didn’t get high before I met Whitney,” he says. Although he says he smoked “weed” and drank alcohol before he met the “Greatest of All” singer, “I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all,” he says, adding that Houston used drugs “way before” she met him. “It’s just unexplainable . . . I’m not the reason she’s gone.”
Of Whitney, he said, “I love that woman with everything that I am. And I believe she loved me the same way. We wouldn’t have been able to make the most beautiful girl in the world – without love. And that’s the truth.”
When he last saw Whitney a week before her untimely passing, he said, “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.”
