Whitney Houston’s Nephew Blames His Stepmom For Family Tragedies

Whitney Houston’s nephew has penned a no-holds-barred open letter to the Houston clan, alleging “obsession, jealousy and greed” on the part of his stepmom, Pat Houston.

As reported, Whitney and her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, tragically both died in mysterious circumstances.

Pat, who Jonathan slammed as a “selfish, cold hearted woman,” acted as Bobbi Kristina’s co-guardian after the then-21-year-old’s boyfriend Nick Gordon found her facedown in a bathtub filled with water in January 2015. She never woke up from the coma she was in and died that summer.

In a disturbing parallel, Whitney passed away at the age of 48 in a Beverly Hills hotel bathtub three years before.

After Brown’s death, the singer’s massive fortune passed on to her mom Cissy and two brothers, Gary and Michael. However, at Cissy’s request, Pat — Gary’s wife and Jonathan’s stepmom — became executor of the estate.

“Pat Houston has single-handedly convinced me that she is a Sociopathic Master-Superfan Manipulator who was willing to demolish anyone in her path to gain control of the proverbial throne and fortune of my Aunt Whitney E. Houston, thus my cousin, Bobbi Kristina Brown,” blasted Jonathan Houston in an explosive Facebook rant on Dec. 30. “She should be investigated.”

Jonathan’s rage toward Pat first flared after he claimed to have recently overheard her talking in a “negative tone” about her late superstar sister-in-law and niece.

“Pat’s character has always been flawed based on my observation,” wrote Jonathan. “I’m not too sure Bobbi Kristina or her Mother would appreciate this woman leading their posthumous legacy,” which, he claimed, provided Pat with the “fortune and name she continues to enjoy" and "profit off of.”

According to Jonathan, his stepmom Pat tried to stir up drama behind the scenes when her famous sister-in-law was still alive.

“While enrolled at Morehouse College in 2009, Pat informed me that my Aunt Whitney Houston was essentially jealous of my sister and I because we were enrolled in college and Bobbi Kristina was not,” wrote Jonathan in his Facebook post.

“Absurd. She continued to note how ‘Whitney is lazy and thinks the world owes her something,’ with disgust.”

Jonathan, however, said he has nothing but fond memories of the aunt he called “Tia” and his beloved cousin, Bobbi Kristina.

“In the few years prior to Tia’s death, I had not seen her often,” he recalled. “The last time I saw her and spoke to my father and Pat, prior to her funeral, was August 9, 2010 during her birthday party, she pulled off with a warm, exuberant ‘Jonathan, Tia Loves You!’ My greatest memories were really of Tia, opposed to Whitney Houston, as I’ve never seen her perform live EVER, that I can remember.”

He continued, “Krissi and I stayed in touch throughout my high school and college years consistently through Sidekick 3 instant messenger and text message, mostly joking and checking on each other.”

Jonathan alleged in his shocking Facebook open letter that his stepmom and his dad could be to blame for the tragedies that befell their family.

“Pat holds a stance of superiority that builds a personal vendetta against other women specifically, who in anyway may seem more appealing. This vendetta was evident until Tia’s last second above ground,” he wrote.

It is creepy the extent Pat will go to maintain her seemingly perfect, role model image,” he added.

“The lack of empathy and compassion that My Step-Mother and Father hold toward most leads me to believe that they could have prevented the deaths of both my Aunt Whitney and Bobbi Kristina.”
