Whitney Houston’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey has given way to revelations from the other half of her infamous marriage to R&B crooner Bobby Brown.

The former New Edition member weighed in on long standing talk of him corrupting Houston throughout their union during an interview on The Insider. According to Brown, the negative influences surrounding his former marriage could not be attributed to one source.

“I think we corrupted each other,” the entertainer said. “I don’t think she hurt me or I hurt her in any way. I just think we had a 14-year marriage that had its ups and down and not many people understood it.”

Brown’s view of his relationship with Houston comes amid the chart-topping diva’s sit-down with Winfrey for the two-part season premier of the entertainment and business mogul’s self-titled talk show. Referencing incidents of physical violence and drug use, Houston detailed how her marriage spiraled downhill in part due to her worldwide fame following the success of her film The Bodyguard and the hit single from the feature’s soundtrack, “I Will Always Love You.”

“Something happens to a man when a woman has that much fame,” said Houston, who tried to downplay her popularity by having people refer to her as “Mrs. Brown.” The influence of drugs was rampant for Houston and Brown as the songbird for marijuana and crack cocaine as her drug of choice. With being around each other so much, Houston labeled her ex-husband as “my drug” during their time together.
