Bobby Brown slams Kanye West for using a pic of Whitney Houston's drug-strewn bathroom

Kanye West’s controversial decision to use the photo for the cover of Pusha-T’s album “Daytona” is faced with more backlash. Bobby, the ex-husband of late singer Whitney Houston, expressed his disgust at West. This follows after other parties also spoke out against the use of the photograph.


Celebritist learned from “Rolling Stone” that 49-year-old Bobby, who was married to Houston from 1992 to 2007, didn't mince any words when it came to expressing his feelings towards West.


“That's really disgusting that he would do that. That's in really bad taste. Something should happen to Kanye. He's already crazy. I knew that when I first met him. Now he's pushing the bar a little bit. He needs somebody to slap him up or something. And I'm just the person to do it."


Earlier this month Kanye, who was the producer of Pusha-T's album, tweeted the photograph while announcing that the album is coming out. The 40-year-old singer reportedly paid $85,000 to license the photograph depicting the late Houston’s bathroom filled with drug paraphernalia.

Whitney`s estate also responded by issuing a statement to “ET”. Their reaction was, as can be expected, that of total disappointment in the ill choice West made.


“Even in Whitney's death, we see that no one is exempt from the harsh realities of the world.”


Pusha-T claims that it was West’s idea to use the controversial photograph for his album. During an interview with “Angie Martinez”, the singer explained that they he had originally picked out other pictures to form part of the artwork for the album cover, but West changed his mind at the last minute.

"1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller ID. [West say,] ‘Hey, I think we should change the artwork, and I like this other artwork.' I said, 'hey, I don't want to pay for that, and I wasn't even gonna ask you to pay for that.'"

Kanye reportedly replied that “this is what people need to see to go along with that music." Whether his choice was in bad taste or not, is another question.
