Bobby Brown Speaks Out About Whitney Houston's Addiction And Death
It's been almost three months since Grammy-winning singer and actress Whitney Houston, 48, was found dead in her Beverly Hills Hotel room, leaving behind a long legacy of musical talent, an 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, and a troublesome history of drug use. Now Bobby Brown is giving his first interview with Matt Lauer on Wednesday and Thursday's Today to talk about the death of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston.
Among other things, Brown talked about the last time he saw Houston a week before her death, when he, Houston and Bobbi Kristina all had dinner together. "She had this, this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible," he told Today, according to USA Today. "You know, and I'm — I'm saying to myself, you know, 'She must be — she must be doing really well,' because she looked really well."
As for the accusations that he got Houston into drugs, Brown says it just isn't so. "No, that's not true. I didn't get high before I met Whitney," he said. "No, I — I smoked weed, I drank beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all." According to Brown, Whitney Houston did drugs "way, way before" he ever met her in 1989, when she was 25 and he was 20.
"I know differently," Brown said. "I think if anyone ever knew us, if anybody ever spent time around us instead of time lookin' through the bubble, they would know how we felt about each other. They would know how happy we were together."
Catch Brown on the May 2 and May 3 morning episodes of Today.
