A shocking picture of Whitney Houston’s bathroom took at her home in Atlanta, Georgia, shows how the star’s life spiraled into chaos at the height of her crack addiction.
The deplorable image, shot in 2006, shows a room littered with drug paraphernalia, including a crack-smoking pipe and spoons covered in white powder.
Despite her fame and wealth, Whitney Houston had descended into squalor, her sister in law Tina Brown, who took the photo, revealed at the time.
Drug paraphernalia can be seen in the room, where Whitney Houston holed up for days, according to Tina Brown, the sister of the singer’s husband Bobby Brown.
Whitney Houston, 48, smoked as much as an “eight-ball” (1/8 of an ounce) of crack at a go, blending it with marijuana inside in a cigar wrapper, Tina Brown, also a self-confessed former addict, told the National Enquirer.
Tina Brown 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.”
The drugs made Whitney Houston so paranoid she saw evil apparitions and once drilled a spy hole in her bathroom to keep an eye out for demons, Tina Brown claimed.
Whitney Houston at one time claimed she didn’t do crack, telling Diane Sawyer in 2002 that she made too much money to ever take the street drug. “Crack is whack,” she famously declared.
But her stunning looks later seemed to be ravaged by her habit.
And although Whitney Houston subsequently got clean, recording a comeback album in 2009, the years of abusing her body also took their toll on her voice.
At her comeback tour in Australia in 2010, Whitney Houston shocked fans when she had to take a 20 minute break to rest her voice.
Whitney Houston was set to make a return to the big screen later this year having filmed Sparkle, due to hit cinemas August 10. But the pressure to succeed was overwhelming.
“Her voice was ruined, and her comeback wasn’t what it was supposed to be, because her voice wasn’t what it used to be,” a friend told People.
Whitney Houston “was in pain from all the pressure she was facing”, the source said.
“I know from when she was recording her most recent album – her comeback album (I Look to You in 2009) – her voice was shot. That bothered her.”
“In the music industry, you’re only as good as your last hit, even if you are Whitney Houston. Then she had people gossiping about her … It was a lot to deal with.”
Whitney Houston had blown a massive fortune, earned over decades of royalties and concert tours on her drug habit and was “broke as a joke”, it was last week claimed.
“Whitney’s fortune is gone,” a source told Radar last week.
“Music industry heavy hitters are supporting her and her label is fronting her cash against her next album, but no one knows when that will be released.”
“She might be homeless if not for people saving her. She is broke as a joke.”
The legendary singer had been reduced to begging friends for help.
“She called someone to ask for $100,” the source said.
“It is so sad. She should have Mariah Carey money, and she’s flat broke.”2006 pictures of whitney houston's bathroom her drug den, a shocking picture of whitney houston's, bathroom whitney housten died pictures, drug paraphernalia, houston's bathroom at home, inside of whitney houston's house, inside whitney houston's house, inside whitney's house, latest about whitney huston and daughter, latest picture's of whitney houston, michael jackson's doughter, national enquirer of houston’s bathroom in the couple’s atlanta mansion littered with crack pipes and coke spoons., national inquirer pics of whitney houston's bathroom, photos of drugs in whitney houston's bathroom, photos of houston's drug life, photos of whitney houston's paraphernalia home, photos of whitney's atlanta home, photos of whitney's bathroom, pics of whitney houston's bathroom, pics of whitney houston's current home, pics of whitney houston's homes, pics of whitney houston's house in atlanta georgia, pics of whitney houston's townhome in atlanta, ga, picture of whitney houston's bathroom, pictures of whitney housten in bathroom hotel, pictures of whitney houston's bathroom, pictures of whitney houston's house, pictures of whitney houstons home in atlanta ga, pictures of whitney's bathroom, pictures taken by whitney houston's sister in law, pictures whitney houston's sister in law sold, shockings photos of whitney houston's house in atlanta before she died, sistet leak's whiney houston home drug photos, smoking pipe, the national enquirer photos of whitney houstonsbathroom, tina brown talk about whitney houston bathroom, tina brown took picas of whitney's bathroom, tina brown's photo of whitney houston's bathroom, tina brown's photos whitney houston, tina browns pictures of whitney's drug habit, tina took whitney houston pics, tmz on whitney huston will, where are whitney houston's home, whitney houston bathroom, whitney houston hotel bathtubpictures, whitney houston's atlanta bathroom, whitney houston's atlanta, ga house, whitney houston's bathroom drugs, whitney houston's bathroom georgia, whitney houston's crack house, whitney houston's georgia home, whitney houston's home, whitney houston's home atlanta, whitney houston's home georgia, whitney houston's home pictures, whitney houston's homes, whitney houston's house, whitney houston's house atlanta, whitney houston's house atlanta photos, whitney houston's house bathroom, whitney houston's house in atlanta, ga, whitney houston's house inside, whitney houston's on crack, whitney houston's room, whitney huston bathroom, whitney tina brown, whitney's bathroom crack pipe, whitney's bathroom pic of paraphernalia, whitney's home, whitney's house atlanta, whitney's housten bathroom, whitney's houston's drug house pictures, whitney's sister in law
