Michael Houston talks to Oprah, says he’s “alive but not living”
Since Whitney Houston’s death, her ex-husband Bobby Brown was repeatedly blasted for introducing her to heavy drugs. Turns out, it was her older brother Michael who introduced her to crack cocaine.The admission comes in a new interview with Oprah for her Next Chapter, as the video embedded below can confirm.
“We got into drugs, we did that together too and it just got out of hand – it was rough,” Michael tells Oprah.
He says he feels pain and regret for not taking better care of his younger sister.
“At the time, in the ‘80s, it was acceptable. In the entertainment industry, it wasn’t a bad word like we have now. It just happened… I can’t say exactly when. We were traveling, late 20s, that money, just got caught up… it’s been a battle ever since,” Michael further says.
