Fending off fingers of accusations claiming that he was responsible for getting Whitney hooked on drugs and was ultimately responsible for her death, Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown said on NBC, “I’m not the one that got Whitney on drugs, at all … I’m not the reason she’s gone.”

Whitney Houston, the legendary singer, was found dead in her bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel in February – her accidental drowning caused by cocaine use and heart disease. The singer had earlier spoken publicly about her long battle with drugs during her 15-year marriage with Bobby Brown. The couple had divorced in 2007.


In his first TV interview since the death of Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown told Matt Lauer of the “Today” show on NBC, that Brown had been off all narcotics since seven years and he was hurt to learn that Whitney had been using cocaine.

“”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,” he told Matt Lauer.

Brown clarified that Whitney had been using drugs long before she ever met him in 1991. About his role he said, “I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.”

When asked whether drugs were a part of her life before she got to know Brown, Bobby said, “Way, way before. Yeah … It’s just, it’s just unexplainable – how one could, you know, (say I) got her addicted to drugs. I’m not the reason she’s gone.”

Talking about her last meeting with Whitney, Brown said Whitney had a “glow about her” on their last meeting about a week before she died. She met her during a dinner Bobby was having with their daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Brown had left Whitney’s funeral before the service had even started saying that he felt unwanted. Within six weeks of Whitney’s death, Bobby had been arrested for drunk driving, though he has pleaded not guilty.
