Says Bobby Brown.
Of course, after a well-loved, well-known individual dies an avoidable death, blame flies like fiery balls of shiz.
Most of the shiz related to Whitney Houston’s death has stuck on her ex, Bobby Brown. Ouch!
But, of course, Bobby resents the claim that he drove Whitney to her death, and the widley-held belief that he was the initial reason she got hooked on ‘hard’ drugs.
"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 … I'm not the reason she's gone."
Bobby also alleges he had no idea she was still abusing illegal substances, adding:
"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," Brown told Lauer. "It's a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way."
Of course Bobby Brown, who recently got 36 months probation for a DUI, wasn’t directly to blame for the star’s tragic demise.
He is obviously one factor - arguably the most insidious - but there are always a million little reasons that subtly cumulate over time, until one simple action or word can make someone do that little bit extra that takes them over the edge - purposefully or not.
All we can do is be a little more open, loving, and conscientious of those around us.
