On life after Whitney: ‘Since my daughter died, I’ve struggled with so many things. I’m still so angry – at Nippy, at the world, at myself. Should I have done things differently? She was a person whose life and voice touched millions of people. I’m as proud as any mother could be about her daughter, but I would trade every last bit of it to have my baby back.’
On Whitney’s divorce from husband Bobby Brown: ‘She finally got rid of him, but it was too late,’. ‘I don’t blame Bobby for introducing Nippy to drugs.’
