During an interview scheduled to air Wednesday, Brown said that he is clean and sober, and discusses how he learned of Houston’s death, his relationship with Bobbi Kristina, and the rumors surrounding he and Houston’s relationship.
When asked about the last time he saw Houston, a few weeks before her death, Brown said the singer “had this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible. I’m saying to myself, you know, ‘She must be … she must be doing really well,’ because she looked really well.”
Lauer asked Brown how he felt when he learned that cocaine contributed to her death, to which Brown replied, “I was hurt. I was hurt … because, you know, me being off of narcotics for the last seven years, I felt that she was, you know, I didn’t know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know, listen, it’s a hard fight. It’s a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way.”
Speaking of how it makes him feel that people blame him for Houston’s death, Brown said it hurts him.
“It makes me feel terrible,” Brown said. “But you know, I know differently. I think if anyone ever knew us, if anybody ever spent time around us instead of time lookin’ through the bubble, they would know how we felt about each other. They would know how happy we were together.”
In fact, Brown seems to insinuate that Houston may’ve introduced him to hard drugs.
“I didn’t get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney,” Brown said. “I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.” He says drugs were a part of Houston’s life “way before” they got together.
“It’s just … it’s just unexplainable how one could, you know, [say that I] got her addicted to drugs. I’m not the reason she’s gone,” Brown said.
