Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina shared the same drug dealer, claims a new shocking report.
According to The Daily Star, Whitney Houston and her teenage daughter Bobbi Kristina were using a man “by the name of Jay” to purchase drugs right up until the singer’s death last month.
A family insider allegedly told The Daily Star that the man would deliver marijuana and cocaine to Whitney Houston’s home in Atlanta, and that the singer was taking drugs for “most of the last six months of her life”.
“Her regular dealer toward the end was a big black guy called Jay,” the family insider told the British publication.
“He would call at the house most evenings in the months leading up to Whitney’s death.
“And he earned a fortune from her.”
The reports claims that Whitney Houston never had any interaction with the man and rather had a friend make the deals.
“They would hand Jay a brown paper bag crammed with hundreds of dollar bills and Jay would hand back the bag with the top folded down,” the insider claims to the paper.
But while the dealings were taking place, the insider alleges that Whitney Houston’s 18-year-old daughter was also being given drugs and alcohol by that man, unbeknownst to her mother.
“He would give her drink and drugs, usually cannabis,” the source told The Daily Star.
The new report comes after numerous reports about Bobbi Kristina Brown’s past troubles.
Bobbi Kristina Brown was admitted to a psychiatric ward in 2008 after she tried to stab her mother during an argument before turning the blade on herself and trying to slit her wrists.
Whitney Houston’s daughter had apparently grown up seeing her mother doing drugs and now her family is concerned that she may follow in the singer’s footsteps in the more negative aspects of her life.
In 2011, Bobbi Kristina’s ex-boyfriend of more than two years was so concerned he spoke to Radar Online about her growing cocaine addiction that he says is due, in part, to her parents enabling her habits.
“I’ve tried to stop her, but all she said was, <<I’m just like my mother!>>,” he said.
Bobbi Kristina Brown will sit down with Oprah on Sunday night for her very first interview since her mother’s death.
Joining her will also be Patricia Houston, Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and one-time manager.
In the interview Oprah Winfrey asks her whether she thought drugs were the cause of her sister-in-law’s sad demise.
“The handwriting was kind of on the wall,” Patricia Houston said.
“I would be kidding myself to say otherwise.”
However, Patricia Houston thought that before Whitney’s death, the singer was somewhat safer that she was before.
“If things hadn’t changed, but things were changing, things were really changing with her, very much so,” she said.
“It wasn’t about the substance abuse or anything like that relative to the latter days or anything like that, I think it was more of lifestyle.”
“I was afraid for other things, lifestyle more so than…” she trailed off.
Not letting a tease like that go unanswered, Oprah Winfrey pressed her on what, exactly, it was about her lifestyle that seemed so threatening
“I saw her chasing a dream, looking for love in all the wrong places.”
