Whitney Houston’s Brother Says He’s the One Who Got Her Hooked on Cocaine [VIDEO]
Whitney Houston‘s mother Cissy Houston is making the rounds to promote her lip-twitching memoir about her daughter — this time on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter,’ where she brought along her son Michael Houston to divest himself of a secret.
Michael told O that he feels âresponsibleâ for Whitney’s death, saying, “I’m living, but I’m not alive without her … I just felt like I should have taken better care of her.â
According to him, he wasn’t aware just how detrimental the drugs could be and âthings got out of hand.â As he explained, âYou gotta understand at the time â the ’80s â it was acceptable … We didn’t know.â
Whitney died on Feb. 11 of last year from drowning and what the coroner said was damage to her heart from prolonged drug use — and Michael feels at fault.
âI gotta live with [it] for the rest of my life,” he said. “It’s painful … I feel responsible for what I let go so far.”
