One of the more bizarre anecdotes about Whitney Houston’s life is recounted by Karrine Steffans, a former girlfriend of singer’s ex-husband Bobby Brown.
Karrine Steffans describes a confrontation between Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s toy boy beau Ray J back in 2006.
In a Vanity Fair article, entitled The Devils in the Diva, Karrine Steffans recalls a phone call from Ray J following Whitney Houston’s split with Bobby Brown.
“He said, <<Is Bob (Bobby Brown) still staying with you?>>” remembers Karrine Steffans.
“I said, <<Yeah, he’s right here>>. And Ray said, <<Tell him I f***ed both of his chicks, you and now his wife>>.”
Echoing Bobby Brown’s interview with The Today Show this week where he denied introducing Whitney Houston to drugs, Karrine Steffans says: “Bob’s big thing was everyone blamed him for her downfall, but when he met her she was already using drugs.
“He always felt very angry about that. He told me, <<What everybody saw wasn’t the real Whitney>>. He always said her private persona – which you saw on [reality show] Being Bobby Brown – was who she really was.”
Being Bobby Brown aired on U.S. network Bravo back in 2005 and documented Whitney Houston’s marriage to the singer, which ended in divorce in 2007.
Ray J was regularly seen with Whitney Houston the week before she died, with the last photograph of the star taken two days prior to her death.
