Some things in the Industry are left unspoken on purpose. But now the truth is finally revealed from the horse’s mouth. Whitney Houston’s brother has finally admitted that he was the one who got his sister hooked on drugs. In the past, Houston’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, was accused of being the one to cause her downward spiral.
Now everyone knows the truth, that Whitney Houston’s drug problem started way before Brown came into the picture. Whitney’s older brother, Michael, in an interview with Oprah said, “I feel responsible I let it go so far.” “We were always being together most of the time and her following behind me. I taught her to drive, we played together, everything you do as you’re growing up.”
“If you do drugs, you do that together too… and it just got out of hand. This drug is rough.”
Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston, reveals in her new book, Remembering Whitney, that she was confused after finding out that her children were doing drugs together. After Whitney’s death, Michael started using again but has kicked the habit once more and has been sober since October 2012. Cissy Houston admits to being a total wreck and alone when she heard about her daughter’s death. February 11th will mark the one year anniversary of her passing.
