Whitney Houston‘s former sister-in-law, Monique Houston, said Oprah Winfrey‘s televised chat with the late singer’s 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina was “disturbing,” and conducted “too soon” after the singer’s February 11 death.
“The whole interview was a little disturbing,” Monique, who was married to Whitney’s brother Gary, told HLN’s Dr. Drew Tuesday. “It was a little soon to expose Bobbi Kristina to the media.
“I’ve lost my mother — and losing your mother is a huge trauma — and I really think she needs time to heal.”
“Her spirit is strong, it’s a strong spirit,” Bobbi Kristina said. “I
can hear her voice in spirit talking to me — ‘I’m right here, I’ve got
you’ — I can always feel her with me. I feel her pass through me all
Monique told Dr. Drew she divorced Gary (who also appeared in the
Oprah special) because of recurring issues dealing with substance abuse.
“Not necessarily because he was a drug addict,” she said, “but once
things were spinning too far out of control, I had to make the decision
to separate myself from the situation.”
