Whitney Houston parties with Bobby Brown: is she back on crack?

Singer Whitney Houston Visits Israel

*Note by Kaiser: I love Ariel Sharon’s “WTF” expression!

The stories just keep coming about the rumored downfall of diva Whitney Houston. Last week, we told you how Whitney’s tour is on hiatus, and before that, family and close friends are trying to put together an intervention to keep Whitney off the drugs as her comeback tour is hitting the skids. Now, witnesses say they saw Whitney partying with ex-husband Bobby Brown, and since then, Whitney’s been showing signs of her old crack habit: moodswings, excessive sweating, shortness of breath and disorientation. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: how does one tell if Whitney’s using? She always seems a little off to me, everytime I see her.

Is Whitney Houston back on crack? That’s the question friends and family are asking and fearing after the pop diva was hospitalized for a reported upper respiratory infection and canceled the first four European dats on her comeback tour.

Even more disturbing, the Grammy-winner’s free-fall has coincided with her renewed relationship with her troubled ex-husband Bobby Brown, sources say.

“Everyone is worried sick that Whitney is back on crack and abusing drugs again,” revealed a source close to the 46-year-old singer – who once famously said that crack is whack.

“She’s exhibiting telltale signs of an addict. One day she’s upbeat and even-keeled, and the next day she’s a mess – sweating, shaking, disoriented and mumbling incoherently. Just as troubling, she’s reconnected with Bobby, her longtime partner in crime.”

Whitney’s downward spiral began months ago when she appeared breathless, exhausted and disoriented during the Asian and Australian legs of her “Nothing But Love” tour.

The once-commanding entertainer struggled to hit high notes, sweated profusely and tripped over her own feet backstage in South Korea on Feb. 6.

Soon after, insiders say Whitney hooked up with Bobby – who has done multiple rehab stints after abusing heroin, cocaine, marijuana and alcohol. Although he lives with girlfriend Alicia Etheridge, Bobby partied with Whitney and a group of pals at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills on March 10.

“Whitney appeared to be feeling no pain. She was noisy and sweating, and yelling that she needed a drink,” said a source.

“I didn’t see any drugs, but she downed a cosmopolitan and Bobby had a beer. Bobby kept telling Whitney to be quiet but she wouldn’t shut up.”

The source added: “Whitney and Bobby smoked crack cocaine in the past, and she shows many of the signs of being back at it again.”

Questions about her drug use surfaced when, on the eve of kicking off the tour’s European leg, Whitney abruptly canceled her April 6 concert in Paris and entered a hospital there with an upper respiratory infection.

She also pulled the plug on April 8 and 9 concerts in England, plus an April 11 show in Scotland. She denied reports of drug abuse, claiming: “My health is terrific, but this is a time when I get a lot of allergies.”

After her hospital stay in Paris, Whitney hold up at London’s ritzy Dorchester hotel, and her team made sure the troubled singer looked like a million bucks when she walked out to her car.

Anxious to dispel rumors of drug use, her sister-in-law Pat Houston told The Enquirer: “Whitney is doing fine. Some people have said cruel things, but she’s happy just to have rested in the hotel.”

So, which is it: an upper respiratory infection, or allergies? Because they are two different things. An upper respiratory infection is basically a common cold. It’s a virus, is contagious, and can cause sore throat, runny nose, and even laryngitis. Seasonal allergies are something altogether different. I think it’s a bunch of baloney, either way. It seems like Whitney has an excuse every time she doesn’t sing well, and this time is no different. And if she’s been partying with Bobby Brown again, that’s even worse news. I just hope those ticket holders from her canceled shows can get their money back!

    She had major talent, and she threw it all away with the drug use. It’s sad, but at the same time it’s her own doing. I hope for the sake of her child she can become clean permanently, if indeed she is using again.

  2. Joseph says:

    Those two need to stay FAR away from each other!

  3. simplicity says:

    Unfortunate. I loved the pure, level talent of her voice. I’ve been told, she may sing again, but not as before.

    Obviously, she needs help.

  4. canadianchick says:

    What a waste-she’s so talented. Her family must be very worried,

  5. lucy2 says:

    On the news yesterday they had footage of her trying to sing I Will Always Love You in concert. It was not good.

    She makes me sad. It was her own doing, but she was once so great and has now spent years at rock bottom. Poor choices on so many levels.
    I really feel bad for their daughter. So many issues from both parents.

  6. Tia C says:

    This really is such a shame. It may take something dire for her to get clean. She seems to be very committed to her self-destruction.

  7. Cindy says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if she is using something to cope with the pressures of being back on tour again especially if she has heard or read the bad reviews and comments people have made about her concerts. She needs to stay away from anything and anyone that might make her go back to using drugs again.

  8. El Predicto says:

    She probably just needed Bobby to “unstick” another doody!

  9. Joan says:

    It makes you wonder if Whitney ever really kicked her habits at all. I still can’t get over the fact that the woman stayed so many years with deadbeat Bobby … she is obviously in need of some serious help.

  10. sickofit says:

    my guess is she was never really away from crack, she has been ordered to do the world tour, because of her being broke. simple and sad as that.

  11. snapdragon says:

    was she ever really off it?

  12. bellaluna says:

    I don’t know if she was ever truly off of drugs, but my husband’s mother did meth for so many years that her mind is messed up, permanently. I can’t imagine crack’s that much different.

    She never should have been pushed into a tour this early in her recovery. Neither should Britney. The tours haven’t done either one of them a damn bit of good, other than financially.

  13. kiki says:

    this is long term drug use

  14. onyx says:

    Party on Girl! you might have a good 3 years left until you meet up with Elvis and M. Jackson. oh, the things they’ll have to talk about.

    • nelly says:

      Daaaang, are you a psychic? You missed it by one year. Lol. Yeah I don’t see how it could have ended any other way. Smh

  15. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    So because she was around Brown, he is the one who is to blame for her possibly being back on crack. Maybe Whitney is a druggie all on her own. I know a lot of people who do not need an enabler to help them with their drug habits.

    Don’t get me wrong, Brown is trash, but it seems easier for people to blame him for her downfall than to blame her, because she seemed so sweet once upon a time.

  16. val says:

    she’s just using bobby brown as an excuse to put all drug usage on him…actually, he has ALWAYS looked sober –not her. i don’;t think she ever left drugs.

  17. RESSE says:

    Thats just a damn shame,she needs
    God in her life to really help her. I feel really bad for her daughter because she is the one suffering cuz her mom and dad is both messed up. But like they say once an addict always an addict

  18. lrm says:

    My first thought when I read this headline/post: Of COURSE she is. Duh.

  20. Lynda says:

    Icry for her when I see video’s “Iwill always love you” and when she does the National Anthem. Truly a horrible and heartbreaking waste.

  21. coucou says:

    If she were smart, she could come out as our Generation’s Billie Holiday – in with the high times, out with the high notes – just put the past behind her and sing the burn-out blues and ballads. If she’s hell bent on partying, she needs to stop embarrassing herself thinking she can sing like she used to. If she wants a come back, she needs to change her style and her repertoire. She is not the same Whitney, she’s fooling herself, not us, and she just ends up looking foolish. Burned out blues and ballads baby – i’d be interested in that, but cracked out high notes and concert flops of late, please, don’t play yourself out like that girl!

  22. Will Makeithappen says:

    Whitney if you read this, please remember that we are all sinners…I’am no different than you despite what my sins may be…but I will pray for you and your family, and do not pay attention to the rest of these negative responses, because all of them can place judgement on your sins but would not dare to confess theirs to a Pastor, let alone publicly…So, with that said…just keep praying for yourself and others…and let these tribulations motivate you to continue to Love and be Loved…cuz GOD always prevail in the end….despite these 2 faced Hypocritical so called Christians, Muslims, etc. with unjust remarks!!!

  23. Patrick says:

    Shut da fuck up!
    Whitney’s totally clean!

  24. You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be really something that I think I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I am having a look ahead for your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
