(NEW YORK) — Bobby Brown’s DUI arrest this week may have been bad news for him, but Whitney Houston’s mother was apparently “vindicated” by his recent run-in with the law, according to TMZ.
Sources close to Cissy Houston tell the gossip site she always felt Brown “was a cancer” that “infected Whitney’s life with negative influences.” What’s more, the arrest proved her right in trying to keep Brown away from Bobbi Kristina, the daughter he had with the late singer. As one source said of Brown to TMZ, “This is the last person she needs to be around.”
For his part, Brown’s attorney, Tiffany Feder, issued a statement early Wednesday that declares, “Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically. He was speaking on his cell phone. Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident. Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway. The legal process shall run its course.”
