Beautiful actress and talented singer Whitney Houston married nearly retired R&B star Bobby Brown in 1992, at the height of her career. With her drug dependency problems, it may not have been a good move being together with someone with substance abuse issues of his own. Through their tumultuous marriage, Whitney Houston’s drug abuse only became worse. Brown and Huston divorced in 2007, Huston was about to record a new album and her life seemed to be going well. Two years later she appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show and gave an interview that was recognized as one of the most expected and outspoken. Huston admitted that her drug addiction became all-absorbing after the thundering success of The Bodyguard in 1992.

Her world tour of 2010, entitled the Nothing but Love World Tour, didn’t salvage her career, though. Her fans were disappointed at the performance and the quality of her voice and she received numerous negative responses from critics. While she did go through rehab, she never overcame her habit entirely. In 2012, under the simultaneous influence of cocaine, marijuana and other drugs, she drowned in her bathtub. Anyway, Whitney Huston is one of the world’s best-selling singers with more than 200 million records sold over the years.
