Was Whitney Houston Really Caught Snorting Cocaine in Public?
Remember back in the day when Wendy used to say drugs are the devil? As people who've never tried cigarettes or any illegal drug, we finally understand what she meant because, boys and girls, Whitney Houston is still fighting the demon. Allegedly.
Over the last few months there have been reports upon reports from anonymous sources that say the singer has not kicked her drug habit. Marlon David is going on record to say he witnessed Whitney snort cocaine in public at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Los Angeles on March 10.
He tells In Touch magazine, Whitney -- accompanied by ex-husband Bobbbbbbbyyyyyyy! Brown -- stumbled into the bar and began cursing and screaming. He remembers her yelling, “I want a fuckin’ drink!” When they sat down next to him, Brandon said he "saw her pull a plastic bag out, put a folded bill to her nose and discreetly snort a line from it of what to me certainly looked like cocaine."
Bobbbbbbbyyyyyyy!, as you should know, was "disgusted" by Whitney's behavior, according to David. He adds: "[Bobby] tried to make her leave, but she wouldn't. She started yelling his name loudly and calling him a stupid son of a bitch, and he told her to shut the fuck up."
Poor Whitney. Her friends are saying she's addicted to prescription drugs while her handlers deny she still has a drug problem.
As this news is breaking, Whitney is laid up in a hospital bed being treated for nose and throat problems at the American Hospital in Neuilly, a posh suburb of France.
An unnamed member of her entourage said the singer was being treated for "chronic rhinopharyngitis (a swelling of the mucus membranes in the nose and pharynx) and an infection whose cause has not been identified."
Several shows from the UK leg of her tour have been canceled (and rescheduled) while the "infection" is treated.
Update: She was released from the hospital. She says the reports of her back on drugs are "ridiculous." About her hospitalization, she told People magazine: "My health is terrific, but this is a time when I get a lot of allergies."
