Bobby Brown speaks out for the first time since the death of ex-wife Whitney Houston to TODAY’s Matt Lauer and makes a interesting implication.
On being shocked that Whitney was still on drugs, at the time of her death:
No, I didn’t think that way bc I know how hard the struggle is…but she was doing wonderful. Everything about her was going on the upward.
On having dinner w/ Whitney, a week before her death, with his daughter, Bobby Kristina:
She had this glow about her that was incredible. I’m thinking to myself ‘She must be doing really well.’
On if how he felt when he learned that cocaine was in her system:
I was hurt. I felt that she was, I didn’t know she was struggling with it stil. Bt at the same time, it’s a hard time.
On if he feels like the could have done something to prevent her death:
Maybe i could have done something different. But you hafta want it. God probably just needed her for the choir, up there in heaven.
On how he feels about the public thinking that he introduced Whitney to drugs:
It makes me feel terrible, but I know differently. If anyone ever knew us….they would know how we felt about each other. The reality show gave us a wake up. We saw how drug use affected our relationship….I didn’t get high before I met Whitney. I smoked weed. I drank beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs….I worried about it when we first got together, until I tried it. For some reason I have an addictive personality.
And now…the video.
And now…remember that the truth is rarely pure and never simple.
