Raffles van Exel the man who cleaned up Whitney Houston’s room after her death, is speaking out saying Whitney was very good at hiding her drug habit.
Whitney was good at hiding her drug habit…I honestly thought she was clean in the two years before she died. Yes, she would have the occasional drink. And I knew she was taking painkillers and the anxiety drug Xanax. But I never suspected she was using hard drugs.
It really shocked me when I found that out. And actually it made me quite mad because I thought, ‘Whitney, you had us all fooled.’
Everyone thought Whitney was in a good place and we never imagined anything like this was going to happen.”
He also reveals how he called Bobby Brown and broke the news to him.
I walked into Bobbi Kristina’s room and she was crying and bawling…She asked me, ‘Is my mummy gone?’ I said, ‘They are working on her.’
She held me and said, ‘I can’t believe she is gone.’ I didn’t want to be the one who told her her mother was dead.
“I asked to borrow her phone and I called Bobby Brown. I said, ‘Yo Bobby, where you at?’
He said he was in Boston. I said, ‘I need you to come to LA, Whitney just died.’ He started crying. He said, ‘Is this a joke? Tell me this is a f***ing joke?’
He goes on to say that once Bobbi K found out her mother had passed, she was uncontrollable and hysterical. It continues to be a sad moment for everyone. Our thoughts are still with Whitney’s family.
