Bobby Brown: "Whitney Drove Me To Drugs"

Published: Thursday 3rd Apr 2008 by Sam
Bobby Brown: Troubled singer Bobby Brown is set to release his autobiography next month. Expectedly, his controversial marriage to ex-wife Whitney Houston is a topic the former New Edition star doesn’t shy away from. Check out extracts via The New York Post below:

“I never used cocaine until after I met Whitney. Before then, I had experimented with other drugs, but marijuana was my drug of choice,” Brown writes in “Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But,” out next month. “At one point in my life, I used drugs uncontrollably. I was using everything I could get my hands on, from cocaine to heroin, weed and cooked cocaine.”

As far as his 15-year marriage to Houston is concerned, it “was doomed from the very beginning. Within the first year we separated, with several more to follow,” Brown writes. “I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married . . . I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children.”

Whitney, he alleges, had been under “a lot of pressure. The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin Crawford. Since she was the American Sweetheart and all, that didn’t go too well with her image . . . In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids. That would kill all speculation, whether it was true or not. In the short, I think I got caught up in the politics and ended up marrying one of the biggest stars in the world.”

But Brown notes that he was no saint in their relationship, confessing in his book, “I am guilty of sleeping with other women . . . Women are always throwing themselves at you. I’m only human, so I would make the mistake and bite the hook sometimes . . . I let the testosterone take over.”

One of his most public indiscretions was an affair with former exotic dancer Karrine “Superhead” Steffans. “Yes, I’ve slept with her,” he confesses. “Yes, I’ve spent several nights at her house. But she was only good for what her nickname stood for.”

Reps for Houston, who divorced Brown a year ago, did not return our call for comment.

SMH at him attempting portray himself as the innocent party – for the most part. The way I see it, they were a mismatched pair to begin with. It really says a lot about his current predicament, if he has to resort to pimping details of his former marriage for money, instead of…(shock horror)…actually working. Random tidbit: LMAO at the Superhead comment!

    What an ass hole, trying to portray himself as victim. I hope no one believes this BS and everybody ought to boycott his dumb book. We all know he introduced Whitney to drugs, the woman was practically a nun before he showed up. We all know black women fall for thug Kasanovas like him everyday, and now he trying to make out that he was the used party? We all know he been spending away Whitney’s fortune, beating her down and after all they went through together, he still got the nerve to talk salty about her. She had like 4 miscarriages trying to start a family with this fool, that was probably a sign from God that this union was not right.

    I’ve got to disagree with you here. I believe Bobby is telling the truth about the some of the reasons they got married in the first place. I also believe him when he says that he wasn’t into hard drugs prior to Whitney. Prior to Whitney Brown was known for being young and wild, not the drug addicted dead beat he is known as today.

    Whitney’s brothers were using hard drugs during those years prior to her marriage to Bobby Brown and they were touring with her everynight as her backup singers, so Bobby’s claims do have some legs.

    She has been accused of being a lesbian several times, and that comes with plenty of pressure. At the time of their marraige Bobby Brown was a very successful musician having broken records with his 15 million albums sold in the US. A marraige to him would be seen as risky, but would finally give her the street cred she needed and end all the gay rumors.

    She at least got one out of two. That being the street cred.

    Now, now….Whitney hasn’t always been an angel. And the things that Bobby is revealing has all been heard before. Whitney, Robin and her brother where using drugs and partiing (as Whitney would say) way before Bobby came into her life.

    Bobby had the b-boy image and a great cover up for “America’s Sweetheart” Whitney. And I do believe that Bobby was influenced to other drugs thru Whitney, although he could have easily said no. But he was always known before Whitney as a drinker and marijuana user.

    i tend to cosign much of what Bobby reveals. I was a huge follower of both of their careers when they began dating in 1990. Whitney was being dogged by gay rumors and was looking to establish street cred to shore up her black listening audience. It’s unfortunate that Bobby couldn’t maintain his remarkable early career success and with disappointment comes added pressure to escape with drugs. They’ve used them together, I’m sure, and somewhere along the way it got out of hand for both of them. Bobby will never be any kind of villain as far as i’m concerned, and neither will Whitney for that matter. At the end of the day, Bobby needs and deserves an income just as much as Whitney does so I’m def gonna be buying the book…

    I know Bobby Brown is broke but he should not be dogging Whitney since they have a child and were married 14 years. They were both grown when they married. Whitney is NOT GAY. She might have been bisexual but not gay because she dated numerous men before Bobby and they both were adults when they got married.

    In his book he mentions that he used weed and cocain before meeting Whitney so if she turned him onto the good s*** they are both to blame since he was already grown.

    In this case/scenario there are three things; his story, her story, God’s story/the truth.

    Goodluck to Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston. They need all the positivity that they can get.
