Whitney files for divorce from Bobby!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well, this just in: Whitney Houston has filed from divorce from her awful, abusive, battering husband Bobby Brown!

I could not be happier for her! Hopefully this will send a message to other abused women that you do NOT have to stay in an abusive relationship! I hope this will help that talented woman finally get her life back on track.

I just read this online - I was thinking the same thing you are Amy - I couldn't be happier for her!

Fine - but now who's going to supply her drugs?

I'm sorry for being "catty", but I see someone that had a God-given beautiful voice and an opportunity for a wonderful life and blew it! I lost all respect for her.

I agree that she has really let herself go and was horrified to find out the extent of her drug abuse. She was a tremendous talent and has fallen so far.
I am in no way making excuses for her behavior, but it is common for people living in abusive relationships to dive into drugs and alcohol to escape the reality of the abuse they're enduring in the home...

Ah, but you see, I believe she was into drugs before she even married Bobby.

Maybe she can get herself into a more supportive environment. I don't know how much abuse was there, but I do know that he isn't the type to help her overcome any addictions. He probably has just as many.

Her appearance and attitude makes me think he did a number on her self-confidence.

I believe that her involvement in drugs was a shared interest that they had. I think it takes two to tango, and also lost respect for her YEARS ago.

I have been the victim of an abusive man in a relationship, and I know what it takes to leave that kind of a situation. Whitney had the money, but not the emotional strength. She lived in denial about her drug addictions, and I pray that she seeks the professional help she needs.

The person I feel most for is their child.

All I have to saw is- It's about time!!! Maybe now she can move on with her live, seek the help that she needs, and begin to make positive changes- I definitely applaude her for getting out of the abusive relationship.

I know someone that is in an abusive relationship now. She just can't seem to leave. She says she is leaving but always goes back. So I know it is hard to leave that kind of relationship. Kudos to her for finally get out of the relationship the whole world knows is bad. Maybe she will be an example for all the young ladies in bad relationships and give them the strength to leave once and for all.

I hope that they and their child can get some work done now and hopefully begin to all heal in the years to come...

I applaud Whitney for the step taken to leave. I hope she remains firm in her objective and rebuilds her life.

It's incredibly hard to leave an abuser but much harder to leave when that abuser is also the person you share a drug lifestyle with...
