Kanye West is in deep water. Days after the rapper bought an old photo of Whitney Houston’s drug-filled bathroom to use on Pusha T’s new album cover, Bobby Brown is firing back.

Brown — who was married to Houston from 1992 to 2007 — was busy working on his two-part biopic, The Bobby Brown Story, when he heard about the Daytona cover, which West, 40, produced.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Pusha T, 41, bragged about the fact that West paid $85K for the exclusive photo, and only slightly altered it to fit the new album cover.

His image choice soon sparked controversy, as readers know Houston suffered from addiction for years, and eventually died of an overdose inside her bathtub in 2012. Her daughter, Bobbi Kristina died three years later, in an eerily similar manner.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Brown, 49, admitted what he really thought about West’s decision to use his late wife’s drug addiction to sell music.

"That's really disgusting that he would do that," Brown said. "That's in really bad taste. Something should happen to Kanye. He's already crazy. I knew that when I first met him. Now he's pushing the bar a little bit. He needs somebody to slap him up or something. And I'm just the person to do it."

Brown’s threat comes one day after Radar exclusively reported that West was refusing to apologize for his provocative decision.

“To be honest, he thinks the family member who took that picture in the first place is the one they need to be mad at! He has no respect for me, Whitney or our family. This really hurts.” Houston’s cousin, music producer Damon Elliott, told Radar. “He needs help! He needs to check himself into a mental institution.”

This is not the first time West has been accused of being mentally unstable. Just last month, he sparked great controversy when he went on a bizarre Twitter rant promoting Trump, publishing intimate conversations with his famous friends and even saying that black slavery was a choice!
