Six years after the death of the famous soul singer, Whitney Houston, her ex-husband, Bobby Brown made new revelations in a recent interview. For the latter, the drug was not the cause of the death of the singer.
“I do not think Whitney died because of drugs,” Bobby Brown told Rolling Stone in an interview last Wednesday. “She worked hard to stay sober.”
Married to Whitney Houston from 1992 to 2007, Bobby rejected the hypothesis that drugs were a factor in his death, although his new wife, Alicia Etheredge Brown, revealed in the same interview that traces of drugs had been found in Whitney Houston’s body when she passed away.
Asked about the cause of Houston’s death, Brown said, “She was heartbroken.”
The singer was found dead in the bathtub in a hotel room at the Beverly Hills Hilton, just before the 2012 Grammy Awards, and investigations revealed that she drowned accidentally, but traces of drugs were found in his body.
At that time, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office had stated that the toxicological tests showed the presence of cocaine, marijuana, and tranquilizers in his body.
Their only daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, died three years later in 2015 under the same circumstances. The 22-year-old girl was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in Atlanta. It died a few months later.
