Contrary to the widely held belief that ex-husband Bobby Brown introduced Whitney Houston to drugs, Whitney’s brother, Michael, confesses to having introduced the late songstress to drugs.
Micheal and his mother Cissy, were guests on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, ‘Oprah Next Chapter’, on Monday, January 28, 2013 where he confessed to have been the first to introduce the late singer to crack cocaine in the 80s.
‘You gotta understand at the time in the ’80s it was acceptable. It’s painful, I feel responsible for what I let go so far’, Michael told Oprah.
He also says he didn’t realise how deadly drugs could be when he first brought them to Whitney’s doorstep.
Whitney Houston, 47, was found dead in her Beverly Hills Hotel room on February 11, 2012 as a result of excessive use of cocaine.
