This shocking scene of sleazy mayhem is damning proof of Whitney Houston‘s tragic addiction — to crack. The National Enquirer‘s sensational exclusive photo (in this week’s issue) shows the superstar singer’s private bathroom after she has locked herself away for days on yet another self-destructive binge. Amid the trash, leftover food and empty beer cans are the tools of the hardcore drug fiend — pipes, rolling papers, spoons in which powdered cocaine is cooked into crack, lighters. The picture was taken by one of Whitney’s closest friends and relatives — Tina Brown, sister of her husband Bobby.
It is the first time one of the serial Grammy-winner’s inner circle has opened the door on the despair and depravity that has led Whitney’s family to fear that she is just one fix away from a fatal overdose.
And, according to Tina’s heartbreaking revelations, this bathroom squalor is just one small part of Whitney’s harrowing world.
Tina, 42, knows Whitney’s drug habits well. A recovering addict herself, she and her sister-in-law were “drug buddies” for many months.
She confesses: “I did crack with Whitney. The truth needs to come out. She won’t stay off the drugs. It’s every single day. It’s so ugly. Everyone is so scared she’s going to O.D.”
In the most explosive interview ever about Whitney, Tina tells how the 42-year-old singer spends days locked in her bedroom amid piles of garbage smoking crack, using sex toys to satisfy herself and ignoring personal hygiene.
