Whitney Houston’s Mother Blasts Bobby Brown For ‘Disturbing’ Interview

‘Don’t Be Cruel’ crooner Bobby Brown may be still dodging cruel comments and criticism from fans of his ex-wife/late pop icon Whitney Houston after his recent interview with Robin Roberts, but now his former mother-in-law, gospel legend Cissy Houston, is joining in on the lambasting.

As many may know, Brown is in heavy promotion of his memoir ‘Every Little Step.’  In the book, he alleges Whitney not only did drugs on their wedding day, but also reignited rumors the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer also had an extended love affair with her female best friend and personal assistant Robyn Crawford.

After taking to ABC’s ’20/20′ to dish even further on the book’s claims, Houston’s mother – Cissy – is now clapping back in defense of her legendary daughter. Read her statement below:

Via People:

“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 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.

“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.

“I am deeply disappointed that this interview to promote the story of Bobby’s life seemed to be more of an exposé on Whitney’s life. My problem with Bobby has always been that he became her husband but not her helpmate or protector.”

    That was a classy clap back. I’m been done with Bobby, like Cissy stated he was never accused from the family as for Whitney drug behavior but he damn sure wasn’t helping in that direction. He’s saying allot of s*** yet Whitney never dogged him or anyone for her faults and here he is airing possibly lies n dirty laundry that was unneeded. I truly believe he’s bitter because his career was nor comparable to Nippy and it overshadowed his. That bs Whitney biography from lifetime should’ve been tilted Bobby as it was concerning him more.

    All of these people are nutty vultures.

    She has a point. If it’s a book about YOUR life, then tell YOUR story. Sad that the 80’s greats died and have such a messy death and close ones doing everything to get money off of them. I’m glad Aaliyah’s family is a family of class.

      Letting your daughter marry a grown man, I beg to differ. Otherwise than that, after her passing, they didn’t try to benefit off of that, and I commend them for that. Anyway, I love Aaliyah, her voice and beauty is something i’ll always miss.

      • Bey 😍 June 9, 2016

        They didn’t know about that marriage which is why it was annulled. It was her evil uncle, the one who held Jojo hostage, who had encouraged it because he, like Predator Kellz, is sick. Please know what you’re talking about before you talk about it.

        Sure hun, whatever you say.

      Class? They let R Kelly smash for hits!

    And Bobby was already on drugs before he met Whit, he admitted it in the New Edition Behind The Music.

    • xedos June 9, 2016

      Bobby was just a weed smoker .Whitney was the into Hard drugs/ you all need o stop believing the image Clive Davies sold the public. That gay rumor has been around for years

  5. Mr.StLaurent June 8, 2016

    Bobby is a piece of sh!t
    He as no respect for Whitney.
    I have not watched the interview and i will never, like i’ve done with that fake “Whitney” movie by Angela Bassett

  6. BitchpleaseeeeeeeBitchpkeaseeeeeeeee June 8, 2016

    Damn mama she throws them shades y’all ‘every little step’ …….😆😆😆😂😂😂👊🏾👊🏾

  7. Ciara’s Toes, and Russell’s OhMiBod stimulator June 9, 2016

    Bobby brown is disgusting. Why would you feel the need to express such unnecessary dribble. Fyi, he stays looking like he needs a bath.

  8. Jay June 9, 2016

    Bobby said nothing wrong. He took blame for everything. He never bashed Whit. I’m sorry but Whitney’s mom has always been in denial. And unfournatley, Whitney and Bobbi is HIS LIFE. Smh

    • Omeeka Milnaj – My Pen Is Out Of Ink June 9, 2016

      I agree with you. Whitney was one of the greatest but people are so blinded by that they are overlooking she was a coke head. I loved Whit and I did share tears when she died but she was an addict just like Krissi, Michael, Prince, and thousands of other Celebes. No need to sugarcoat the truth. They asked him for a truthful in depth interview. Robin asked questions she figured people wanted to know about and he answered them. Cissy with all due respect sit down. You’ve had every opportunity to get the truth out but you let that vulture Pat do what she wants.

  9. MusicLife June 9, 2016

    I did not watch it but I do think that he should not have done it. I mean even the book is much and seems like desperate attempt for money.

  10. Coolness June 9, 2016

    I have yet to watch the interview (I will get around to doing so soon). However, I was shocked at the excepts I read online about him apparently confirming Whitney may have been gay and the whole drug issue. Whitney constantly denied having an intimate relationship with Robyn Crawford while she was alive so why not just respect what she had to say about that instead of rehashing it all over again? She’s not here to speak for herself and the same goes for Bobbi Kristina. It’s truly heartbreaking what became of Whitney’s narrative in the last 10+ years of her life. So much beauty, TALENT and success yet she lost her life to the scourge of drug addiction. May she rest in peace.

  11. Coolness June 9, 2016

    Also can anyone explain why Whitney was thought of as a lesbian when she first burst on to the scene? That rumour followed her to the grave. Is it because she was gorgeous but not particularly a s*x symbol that led the media to thinking she had a relationship with her best friend? I also heard the same thing was done to Toni Braxton because on her first album’s cover, she rocked short hair, a leather jacket and jeans? People were mad ignorant back then 😒😒😒.

  12. Bey 😍 June 9, 2016

    What’s annoying me is that Whitney knew a lot about Bobby’s gay rumors and overlooked them. Poor thing must have heard about the talk about Eddie Murphy, Johnny Gill, Arsenio and Bobby and ignored it. Now he wants to blacken her name by tying her to a salacious lesbian affair. The man is deeply insecure and will always resent Whitney for being more successful than him.

    • Royalkev June 9, 2016

      ^Basically! Bobby’s ego is ridiculous! It was too big for New Edition and it was also too big for his marriage.

    Wow. The new US weekly cover has some other excepts from the book. The cover claims Whitney cheated with Tupac Shakur, Booby had s** with a ghost, and he kicked Janet out of his hotel room naked. Dang, Bobby spilling it all.

    • Royalkev June 9, 2016

      Bobby wish he could have thrown Janet out naked! LOL. That should have been recorded! Janet dated him briefly and didn’t have time for his shenanigans! His bruised ego has been crushed ever since! When Bobby met Whitney, he was basically hot for about 3 minutes and then quickly became Mr. Bobby Houston! How I wished Whitney just fell in love with a Brian McKnight, or a Babyface, or someone more secure with themselves, instead of trying to fix a broken man!

      • Del June 9, 2016

        In the special the other night, it was reported how Whitney would often dim her light publically to make him feel better. That’s why she called him the “King of R&B.” I remember Jamie Foxx saying in one of his comedy specials that Bobby was the “King of R&R (Rest and Reefer)”, but definitely not R&B with only one classic album to his name (Don’t Be Cruel).

      • Royalkev June 9, 2016

        Exactly, Bobby and Whitney met during his commercial run (all 60 seconds of it) and she stuck around afterwards, being the good wife that kept trying to make him happen again!

      • JOHNVIDAL June 9, 2016

        Totally! Whitney had already problems when she met Bobby yes, but maybe a good man could have helped her instead of making it all 10 times worst until the end. Pretty much what Mary J Blige said. You need someone to really take care of you and take you out of that (and of course you have to give it your all too).

  15. Royalkev June 9, 2016

    Bobby’s a sad excuse of a man! He didn’t challenge Whitney (when she finally decided to air out his dirty laundry on Oprah) or speak so ill of her when she was alive! He knew that Whitney was a good wife to him and that he wouldn’t have a leg to stand on if he said otherwise! After all those years Whitney attempted to sell Brown as the “king of R&B” (after his career peak), this is how he repay her! Bobby was a very envious husband and watching Whitney receive every award known to man (that he secretly wanted) during the BG years must have really scarred him for life! Whit was really sleeping with the damn enemy!

    • JOHNVIDAL June 9, 2016

      Total agreement.

  16. What Now June 9, 2016

    The entire interview was odd especially the way they through his current wife in at the end.

  17. JOHNVIDAL June 9, 2016

    I don´t understand the few comments saying we have Whitney in a pedestal and that she was not perfect. Yes we KNOW that. And we also know her brother was the one who introduced her to drugs. Nobody says otherwise. That doesn´t take away the fact that Bobby was a shitty husband, who treated her badly at times and definitely cheated on her. Whitney did her all to support him and make him look better than what he was when she was pretty much the biggest star and the most glorious voice on the planet. He has not been good to her at all, definitely not. And things like this are the last straw.
    I don´t know if Whitney had a relationship with taht friend of hers. It could be. All I know is taht if it were the case, that was just one more sad thing that took place in Whitney´s life since a superstar of her caliber and with her impecable image wouldn´t have been accepted as a lesbian back then. These huge people from the 80s and 90s went through so much in so many levels. Starting with teh crazy high standards of talent you needed to saty on top (unlike now).
