Bobby Brown revealed the first time he saw Whitney Houston take cocaine was on their wedding day.
Bobby Brown is opening up about his ex-wife Whitney Houston’s battle with drugs, revealing that he watched her do cocaine on their wedding day.
In a preview of his interview with Robin Roberts that will air Tuesday night of ABC’s 20/20, Bobby said that just before the two were married in 1992 he walked in to see his bride and found her hunched over a bureau snorting a line of cocaine.
‘That was the first time I had actually saw her do drugs,’ Bobby told Roberts.
Roberts also showed Bobby a photo from his wedding of him and his wife dancing and asked Bobby what he saw when he looked at the smiling couple.
‘Happiness. I think we’re both happy,’ said Bobby.
‘I was deeply in love with her and, you know, for the rest of my life I think I will have that feeling towards her because she was that one person who knew me. That one person who had no judgment.’
When asked what he thought about Whitney doing drugs on their wedding day Bobby said he did not have much concern for his future wife.
‘She wasn’t that. The drugs wasn’t her,’ said Bobby.
‘She did drugs but drugs didn’t do her. She knew how to handle herself. It only made me want to love and protect her more.’
Bobby was also asked by Roberts what it was like to have many people believe for years, and even know, that it was him who introduced Whitney to drugs, which would ultimately claim her life.
‘It wasn’t me that started her,’ explained Bobby.
‘I take my part and I take it hard for me even being a part of it. But we all have our own minds and some of us are stronger than others.’
