Cissy Houston at loggerheads with her granddaughter over her lifestyle and choice of men.
For all of Whitneys musical greatness her personal legacy is tragic.

So sad to hear of this. I fear Whitney's daughter might too easily meet the same fate as her mum.

What millions? I thought Whitney was broke when she died. I thought her record company had to paid her hotel bills etc. She had to sell her home and NOW we hear her daughter is inheriting millions???? Can we believe anything that is written in the media??

It might be life insurance or something like that?

I can imagine it's from the royalties of her songs.

An incredibly toxic and dangerous mix,young,rebellious,messed up,without a mother and estranged from her family who could have a benign restraining effect on her excesses,foolishness etc,dabbling in things ,surrounded by hangers on and an insane amount of money for someone so young to handle esp in super unideal circumstances.

Hoping for the best but fearing the worst.

Estrangement from her family might be the best thing for her. I mean this is a family (the Houston's) where drugs have been rife for years and where not one seems to be able to take an ounce of responsibility and ownership for it.

Where the focus is to not talk about the 'problems' and white wash them as opposed to confront and deal.

Maybe she wasn't a user but she has seemingly done very little in regards to the problems within her family.

She continues to blame Bobby Brown for Whitney's drug habit despite the fact Whitney was an addict for years before she met Bobby, from a very young age. That it was in her son, Whitney's brother who introduced Whitney to the world of drugs. And that it was Whitney and her brother who got Bobby on to the hard stuff but who even at his worse was nowhere near the user Whitney was.

And even when they split and Bobby pretty much cleaned himself up (despite still a few issues with alcohol) while Whitney carried on using up till it killed her, Cissy still plays it like Whitney was this poor innocent victim of Bobby Brown. That's not to say Bobby Brown is an angel or didn't help fuel Whitney's problem while they were together but Cissy continues to down play her daughters responsibility for her own end and for the influence it must have had on her daughter. She also has very little to say on her own sons involvement.

She seems incapable of accepting that her family is/was the problem. A family of sons, daughter, cousins, neices who were all deeply involved in drugs. The fact is she has allowed her daughter and her grand-daughter to be surrounded by drugs (either blindly or knowingly) and we're supposed to believe she knows what's best for Bobbi-Kristina?

Thank you.I geniunely had no idea about most of this information.I like most people assumed it was Bobby Brown that first introducded Whitney to drugs and that he was the heavier user.

brumilad, I had no idea how deeply Whitney & her family were involved in the drug scene. Like many I believed her addiction was largely down to Bobby. Thanks for putting this information out there, it's always important in cases likes these to hear the real story.

There have always been rumours that Whitney was a lesbian and that her strict religious upbringing forbid her to be who she really wanted to be...

Speaks volumes about the grandmother that she has written a "tell all" book.

What a lovely sounding woman.

It was all smoke and mirrors. Obviously when they got together Whitney was marketed as the good Christian girl, an image that was protected at all costs. Bobby on the other hand was marketed heavily on his bad boy credentials as they were trying to move him away from his Candy Girl child star image for his adult solo career.

However while Bobby certainly was a bad boy and was coming into the relationship an alcoholic and weed smoker, Whitney was not coming into anywhere near the good girl her image professed she was. She had already been using hard drugs for some time and introduced Bobby to that scene.

The idea that Bobby corrupted Whitney obviously comes from their images that also wasn't helped by Bobby's scrapes with the law and his declining career through their marriage. There was no reason to protect or guard his image like there was for Whitney.

And there's no doubt he wasn't good for her, but she just as much wasn't good for him. Two addicts being together is a match made in hell.

All of Cissy's children grew up to be drug addicts, her niece Dionne has had issues with weed, her other niece Dee Dee Warwick was a heroin addict who like Whitney died from her issues with drugs. Due to her families social/professional circle Whitney was surrounded by a lot of dysfunction from a very young age.

And that's not to blame Cissy, maybe I am being a little harsh. No doubt she wants the best for her grand-daughter and tries her hardest. However the stats suggest this isn't a good family to be around that have yet to confront their own issues.

She's the image of her dad. I'm wondering if her grandmother's edgy about Bobbi heading the same way as her mother. Saying this though, Bobbi's not a star like her mother. She won't have the pressure that a star has. Unless, of course, she starts a singing career like her mother.

And it was her mother who said she'd rather have a drug addict for a daughter than a lesbian. You can understand just how this could have screwed Whitney up. In fact it was the family and record company who almost forced Whitney and Bobby Brown together, to solve the 'gay problem'. They apparently told her in no uncertain terms, that being a lesbian was a no no and she should find a husband

To be honest I'm not entirely sold on the lesbian Whitney rumours. And think there is a bit of agenda from some of the corners that push it.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...ian-rumor.html

That article sort of sums up my feelings. Maybe she was but then again maybe the rumours just came from stereotypical judgements of what makes a lesbian.

Because fame isn't the natural high it appears to be I'd guess.

Anyone here see Whitney in concert I saw her in Sheffield in September 1999
I think at her peak she was the best female singer I have ever heard

Don't think her daughter has her voice or her looks though she obviously takes after bobby brown

It's a shame her genes say she should be the perfect popstar.

At their peaks her mother was the arguably the greatest voice and her father in my opinion was arguably the greatest all round male performer.
