    I'm proud to say I'm a fan of both Whitney & Bobby [2] It's true, Bobby is a great person and a amazing singer too. About the drugs....was a relationship and like all couples both are guilty of such term. We'll always love Whitney it's true, but we can't blame Bobby for this tragedy

    It was obvious they didn't need a personal relationship. Their duet, 'Something In Common' was definitely dope. Going around blaming Bobby when you weren't there to see what really happened is unnecessary. I don't care who introduced who to what drug. At the end of the day, neither should have done it. But shit happens. They're both talented and I'm proud to say I'm a fan of both Whitney & Bobby.

    leave bobby alone! he and whitney partied together...and she pursued him. he's no more to blame for her death than the hotel is. whitney was her own woman & everyone around her knew that. no need to compound the trauma of her death by blaming her ex-husband! [2]
