Whitney Houston’s mother Cissy has taken great umbrage at the fact that Bobby Brown is doing so much talking about the late superstar singer — while trying to promote a tell-all book — after she has passed away.
Cissy Houston wonders openly why Brown had little to nothing to say about her daughter while she was still alive.
She gave an exclusive statement to People which puts Brown on full blast for the way he portrayed Whitney Houston postmortem:
“Last night I saw Bobby Brown’s interview with Robin Roberts. It was disturbing. Although the interview was supposed to promote HIS autobiography, he never spoke about his parents and siblings and any issues they might have or have had that impacted and may continue to impact on ‘Every Little Step’ he takes. Instead he chose to concentrate his comments primarily on Whitney. I can’t help but wonder why,” says Houston.
“Whether I would have chosen Bobby for my daughter’s husband is not important because the choice was not mine to make. She loved him and I believe him when he says he loved her. I only wish he had loved and respected her enough to make some of the negative statements about her and Krissi while Whitney was alive and able to respond from her perspective,” she continues.
In addition, Cissy Houston vehemently refutes some of the things that he had to say about her daughter and granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who tragically died in an eerily similar manner as her mother:
“On the OPRAH show when Whitney said Bobby had spit in her face and Krissi had seen it, Krissi was in the audience and available to challenge anything her mother said. Bobby was alive and free to dispute what she said. He chose not to; instead he waited to speak about her when she could no longer speak for herself.”
“There is no value in my challenging all of his statements – point for point – such as his assertion that he ‘had money’ when he married Whitney or that anyone in my family said he started Nippy on drugs. No one blames Bobby for that. However, I must say that his story of seeing her do drugs for the first time on their wedding day is untrue (Donna Houston, Robyn Crawford and I were with Nippy the whole time before the ceremony), and more importantly, it forever casts a shadow over one of the most important days of her life,” says Houston.
Well. What do you think of Bobby Brown promoting his book by casting some aspersions on the iconic Whitney Houston about her drug habits and her sexual orientation?
