There are new reports out there letting us into the life of Whitney Houston and her enormous drug problem. According to a new report from the Daily Beast, Houston fell back into drugs in 2010 and fell harder than she ever had into addiction.
The Daily Beast went seep into detail of the Grammy winner’s fight against addiction from the beginning. A friend of Whitney’s claiming the singer would “spend thousands of dollars a week buying drugs and stockpile it in the house so she wouldn’t run out.”
Monique Houston, who was married to Gary Houston, was asked why no one ever did anything about it and she replied,
“The family was afraid of the embarrassment on some level and wouldn’t confront her early on. Her mother would always say, ‘I don’t understand this drug thing.’ And she didn’t. They let it get too bad before they understood she needed serious help, and then it was too late.”
Monique also debunked the idea that Whitney’s ex-husband Bobby Brown was responsible for the singer’s drug addiction.
“Drugs were around her for years before she met Bobby and continued after he left. It was worse when they were together, but he didn’t cause it.”
Bobby Brown repeated the same story when he gave his now famous interview with Matt Lauer after Whitney’s death. A friend of Whitney’s said of the couple’s relationship,
“Bobby liked to drink, and when he was drunk, he was really mean and nasty. He’d spit at her and throw things at her, all in front of Bobbi Kristina.During one of Brown’s attempts at sobriety in the late ’90s, Houston decided to go along on the tour, baby daughter in tow, to support him. Brown had just come back from a stint in rehab, but Houston continued to use cocaine in front of him. Brown was so enraged he ordered her and Bobbi Kristina off the bus in the middle of the road, forcing another band member to pick them up.”
