Bobby Brown has put his latest salvo at ex-wife Whitney Houston in writing, E! reports, claiming in an upcoming book that she turned him on to cocaine and that their "doomed-from-the-very-beginning" marriage was mainly aimed to quell rumors about her sexuality. Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But... hits shelves June 1.
Houston, 44, is "sad that Bobby feels the need to say such things," a rep said today, "and will not speak badly about the father of her child even if it's to set the record straight." The oft-incarcerated Brown, 39, writes he "never used cocaine until after I met Whitney." The pair, Grammy winners both, married in 1992 and divorced last year.
