Hous­ton’s sis­ter-in-law feared singer’s drug use

The Washington Times Daily - - Television -

Whit­ney Hous­ton’s sis­ter-in-law said she feared that drugs would end the singer’s life. In a par­tial tran­script of an in­ter­view with Oprah Win­frey that was set to air Sun­day, Pa­tri­cia Hous­ton said she would be “kid­ding her­self” to say oth­er­wise.

Ac­cord­ing to the As­so­ci­ated Press, Ms. Hous­ton, who was her sis­ter-in-law’s man­ager, was asked if she thought drugs would end up “tak­ing” Whit­ney Hous­ton. The “hand­writ­ing was kind of on the wall,” she replied.

The pop star was chang­ing how she lived, Ms. Hous­ton said, and “it wasn’t about sub­stance abuse or any­thing like that rel­a­tive to the ... lat­ter days or any­thing like that.”

“It was just more of a life­style. I was afraid for other things,” Ms. Hous­ton said. “I saw her chas­ing a dream, you know, look­ing for love in all the wrong places.”

Bobbi Kristina, Hous­ton’s daugh­ter with singer Bobby Brown, also was in­ter­viewed for the episode of “Oprah’s Next Chap­ter.” The 19year-old dis­cussed how she wants her mother to be re­mem­bered, OWN said.
