Bobby Brown, “Whitney Was Already On Drugs…WAY Before She Met Me!”
Bobby Brown sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer slated to air in two parts on The Today Show where he talks about drugs, sobriety, and his relationship with the late Whitney Houston.
Although he’s pretty much preaching to the choir on this side, he tells Lauer that he is not the reason that Whitney is no longer with us.
I didn’t get high [on narcotics] 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. [He says drugs were a part of the singer's life "way before" they got together.]
It’s just … 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.
He also says that the last time he saw her, she seemed to be doing fine and had a “glow.”
[She] had this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible. I’m saying to myself, you know, ‘She must be … she must be doing really well,’ because she looked really well. 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.
