Bobby Brown is about to release a new tell-all autobiography in which is discusses intimate details of his rocky marriage to singer Whitney Houston and accuses her of introducing him to hard drugs, saying, "I never used cocaine until after I met Whitney".
For her part, Houston has vowed not to let her ex-husband’s accusations affect her for the sake of their 15-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
Details from 39-year-old Brown’s book, ‘Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But’, began surfacing on Thursday (April 3) in the New York Post.
In the book, Brown claims, "I had experimented with other drugs, but marijuana was my drug of choice… I never used cocaine until after I met Whitney.”
He says his dependence on narcotics eventually spiraled out of control, saying, "At one point in my life, I used drugs uncontrollably. I was using everything I could get my hands on, from cocaine to heroin, weed and cooked cocaine.”
Brown also describes his 14-year marriage to Houston as "doomed from the very beginning."
"I think we got married for all the wrong reasons," he says in the book. "Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married … I believe her agenda was to clean up her image."
Houston’s rep responded in a statement to People magazine: "Miss Houston is sad that Bobby feels he need to say such things, but she choses to take the high road and will not speak badly about the father of her child, even if it’s to set the record straight."
Brown, who split from Houston in September 2006, admits that he cheated on his wide, saying, "Women are always throwing themselves at you. I’m only human, so I would make the mistake and bite the hook sometimes. I let the testosterone take over."
