Oprah Winfrey sat down with Whitney Houston‘s mother Cissy for an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter which aired Monday night (January 28). While there were several scandalous revelations from Cissy (e.g. she’s really not OK with homosexuality…nor with Bobby Brown), the biggest bombshell came from Whitney’s brother Michael, who made a tearful appearance in the episode.

The commonly held belief is that bad boy Bobby Brown introduced Whitney to drugs, and thus, had sparked her drawn-out, tragic demise. But Michael admitted to Oprah that it was he — not Brown — who introduced his sister to cocaine in the ’80s (“Yeah, we did everything together”). Michael made it clear that Whitney was into drugs before meeting Brown, and added, “I feel responsible for her, I always have…It just got out of hand.” You can watch the full interview up top, with Michael’s revelation coming at the 33-minute mark.
