    Whitney like both Bobbies are drug addicts, don’t know about the rest of the family, but Whitney’s mother better be glad she wasn’t my x wife and OUR daughter was going to be there or she would need an Army to keep me from being there for My daughter.
    Any way if the truth really be known Whitney’s Mother wants to keep Bobby Brown away from his daughter so she will have a easier path to the Money!! You know what they say the Hurt Dog Barks first and longest too and she’s really Barking Loud! I hope Whitney left her money where no one can get it except her daughter and only after she is clean and even then only get it a little at a time under supervision of a good, honest attorney till she gets straight for a long while! Someone had better keep a good close on Whitney’s Mother!!!
