Whitney Houston and her R&B singer husband had a very public battle with substance abuse, and he had seversal run-ins with the law.

Houston was enjoying a comeback of sorts and drowned on Feb. 11, 2012 on the eve of the Grammy Awards, in a Beverly Hills hotel.

The medical examiner said heart disease and other complications tied to cocaine abuse were contributing factors.


There have been multiple reports that Bobbi Kristina had fallen into her own drug spiral.

She was found by the man she called her husband, Nick Gordon, who was three years older than her and an orphan raised by Houston.
