Rest in Peace Whitney Houston..dis is so sad…
I feel so sad that Whitney Houston has passed on. As far as I am concerned, Bobby killed her. Ladies, marry with your eyes wide open. I don’t mean Bobby physically killed Whitney. From the day he came into her life, he ruined her. #BadAssociationCurruptsUsefulHabits
