Remember Whitney Houston's Ex Bobby Brown? Her Family Said their married life was rocky from the start

A new documentary "Whitney", about the life of R&B superstar Whitney Houston reveals the details of her troubled marriage to singer Bobby Brown.

Seven years after Whitney Houston's tragic death on February 11, 2012, details about her life and her disastrous marriage to R&B singer Bobby Brown have been revealed in  Kevin Macdonald's documentary, "Whitney."

Among the 60 people interviewed for the film was Brown, who spoke about their marriage openly.

“I just hope people remember Whitney for the music she shared with the world, which was her most important legacy.”

BOBBY AND WHITNEY: A CODEPENDENT RELATIONSHIP

Friends and family of the couple have revealed that their marriage was "a mess" of drug abuse and constant conflict.

The couple married in 1992 when Houston was riding high on her recent success with the film "The Bodyguard," and what seemed a promising beginning quickly proved to be a disastrous mistake.

USING DRUGS ON HER WEDDING DAY

Brown revealed that he saw Houston using drugs for the first time on their wedding day, and a spiral of codependency began.

Brown is now sober, after going through rehabilitation for his drug and alcohol abuse in 2012.

Brown was a frequent consumer of weed, but Houston was into cocaine, and both were heavy drinkers:

“The problem with Whitney and Bobby was they exacerbated each other’s addiction. She did more cocaine, he drank more. But when they got together they both started doing more cocaine and drinking. It just manifested itself in a really bad way.”

RUMORS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE AND DRUG USE

In December of 2003 police responded to a domestic-violence 911 call to the Georgia home of Brown and Houston, and the R&B singer was later charged with battery. It was the beginning of the end.

BOBBY BROWN COULD'NT HANDLE WHITNEY'S SUCCESS

Friends of the couple have revealed that Brown was ill-equipped to be married to a mega-star like Houston, and that the relationship deteriorated when his own career started to founder:

“Bobby Brown was like a child when he got there, ill-equipped to get married to Whitney Houston and walk into that environment. All these people had collaborated together with her to create who she had become.”

Brown is now sober, after going through rehabilitation for his drug and alcohol abuse in 2012.

One thing Houston's friends and family agree on, the Diva of Pop loved him, and at the time of her death, the couple had reached a good place as co-parents to their daughter.

Brown was to witness his and Houston's only daughter Bobbi Kristina's own descent into dependency and untimely death - a bitter legacy from such a monumentally talented mother.

TRAGIC DEATH OF BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN

In January 2015, Whitney Houston's fans were horrified by the news that her only daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, had been found unconscious in her bathtub.

This was a grim reenactment of Houston's own death, 3 years previously. The 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina was rushed to North Fulton Hospital where she was placed on a ventilator.

After doctors declared there was no brain function, Bobbi Kristina was removed from the ventilator and subsequently died.

Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was suspected of involvement in her death and was arrested on charges of domestic violence, but the accusations were later dropped.
