Whitney Houston’s best friend Robyn Crawford opens up about the late singer’s cocaine use while chatting with NBC News’ Craig Melvin in a special edition of “Dateline”.
Crawford insists Houston was doing drugs before her husband Bobby Brown came along.
She shares, “I would remind Whitney that, you know, we said doing coke couldn’t go where we’re going and we’re already there. So we shouldn’t be doing it. I’d notice that she would go ahead and do it. She was having difficulty stopping.
“She wasn’t doing it [drugs] regularly, but she would do it sometimes and might, you know– overdo it. But, you know, Bobby, he didn’t introduce her to cocaine.”
Houston and Brown were married from 1992 to 2007.
In Crawford’s new memoir, A Song For You: My Life with Whitney Houston, it’s revealed Houston first tried cocaine at age 14.
She writes, according to People: “She admired that I could stop. She said, ‘I’m going to stop but I’m just not ready yet.’”
