BOBBY BROWN WILL LIKELY TURN BACK TO CRACK AFTER BEING TURNED AWAY FROM WHITNEY HOUSTON FUNERAL
February 15 2012
Los Angeles, CA – Even to the casual observer of Hollywood and celebrities, it was pretty clear that the marriage between Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston was a toxic relationship. At the start it seemed like a good fit. The nice girl and the bad boy, both famous, and seemingly in love but things started to go sour from the start.
Over the course of that fifteen year marriage things got bad, really bad, resulting in a lot of violence and lot of drug use. It was clear that the two were a match made in hell, embellishing each other’s bad behaviours and pushing them every further down a dangerous spiral, a spiral that ultimately ended with Whitney Houston dying in a hotel bathtub.
Houston was an adult of course and made her own decisions, but it is entirely likely that had she not met and married Brown she would still be alive today and possibly even still successful. Brown undoubtedly had a negative influence on Houston, and likely her on him, and now she is dead. Seeing that, Houston’s family has made it clear that they want Brown nowhere near Houston’s funeral, a fact which has upset him and will likely turn him back to using crack and beating people up.
“Bobby is really upset by the whole thing. Whitney was an incredibly important person in his life and he is very sad that she is gone. He would like to say goodbye to her but the family is making that really difficult,” said an insider. “He hopes they change their mind and not only let him attend but also see his daughter which they have prohibited since everything went down. We are all concerned that if he doesn’t get his way he’ll turn back to his old ways, likely crack.”
It is believed that mother Cissy Houston is the one most opposed to Brown appearing at the funeral.
It’s not clear is Brown, who is now remarried, has done crack since arriving in Los Angeles following the death.
“Bobby really doesn’t want to turn back to drugs but they are really forcing his hand here. He is really happy actually in his new life and likes being clean. He would really like to avoid going back to those old ways but if they keep being nasty to him, well, I mean it’s going to happen,” continued the insider. “When that happens they really won’t have anyone but themselves to blame. The last thing they need, the last thing his daughter needs, is another dead parent and that is the course they are setting him on if they don’t let him in to the funeral. They need to think about what’s best for Bobbi Kristina.”
Brown’s drug of choice in his heyday was marijuana laced with cocaine, but crack was good standby.
“Right now he is staying in a hotel, not dissimilar from the one in which Whitney died with a bathtub and everything. It would take much for him to get some drugs up in there and that, well, that’s not going to go well and all because they don’t want him at the funeral. They need to think about that,” continued the insider. “They don’t need another death on their hands right now but that is exactly what they are going to get if they don’t do him this one small courtesy which really doesn’t affect them all that much. It’s really insensitive to be honest.”
Brown has reportedly never deleted the number for his former dealer.
