Vanity Fair Reports on Whitney Houston’s Final Days

| by Michael Allen

In the June issue of Vanity Fair, contributing editor Mark Seal writes about singer Whitney Houston's troubled life and final days.

Tiffanie Dixon, Whitney Houston’s hairdresser, says the singer read the bible the night before her death: “Her glasses were broken, but she read by holding the little single lens. She had marked pages—Exodus, Mark, and Matthew. The last thing I remember her saying was ‘I just want to love and be loved. I want to love like Jesus did. Unconditionally.'"

Karrine Steffans, Bobby Brown’s girlfriend, told the magazine that Houston's boyfriend Ray J. called her and said: "Is Bob still staying with you?" Steffans told him that Brown was there and Ray J. replied: "Tell him I f*cked both of his chicks, you and now his wife.’”

Steffans also said that Brown resented being blamed for Houston's drug use: “Bob’s big thing was everyone blamed him for her downfall, but when he met her she was already using drugs. He always felt very angry about that. He told me, ‘What everybody saw wasn’t the real Whitney.’ He always said her private persona—which you saw on Being Bobby Brown—was who she really was.”
