Whitney Houston, say hello to Pete Doherty.
If the poor woman could kick this habit, leave Bobby, and cut a hip album, she could have a comeback larger than Mariah Carey‘s or Kate Moss’. Apparently The Sun has photos of Whitney Houston’s bathroom after a drug binge that show drug paraphernalia including a crack-smoking pipe, rolling papers, cocaine-caked spoons and cigarette ends are strewn across the surface tops. Does anyone have copies or scans of these? If so, please send them our way.
Now she is a paranoid wreck hopelessly hooked on crack. Drugs have devastated her once-famous beauty. She is haggard, with dark circles under her eyes and a deranged look on her face.
She regularly disappears for days and weeks at a time — holed up in seedy crack dens in dangerous parts of town. And she has blown much of her multi-million pound showbiz fortune on her habit.
Now family and friends fear the addiction will end in her death unless she can beat it. The bathroom photo was taken by Whitney’s sister-in-law Tina Brown at the five-bedroom mansion the star shares with her drug-abusing hubby Bobby Brown in Atlanta, Georgia.
Tina, sister of Bobby, is herself a self-confessed former addict who once regularly took crack with mum-of-one Whitney. She is now clean. But she said: “The truth needs to come out. Whitney won’t stay off the drugs. It’s every single day. It’s so ugly. Everyone is so scared she is going to overdose.”
In a shocking interview, the mother of six told how Whitney spends days locked in her bedroom amid piles of rubbish. There the woman who co-starred with Kevin Costner in the 1992 hit movie The Bodyguard smokes crack, uses sex toys to satisfy herself and ignores personal hygiene.
When high on drugs, she imagines she sees demons and is being beaten by them. The sad truth is that she bites and punches her own body without realising it.
Good God! Can we say intervention? Where is Whitney’s family? Come on Dionne, get your friends together and save this woman.
