Whitney Houston's Mother

Cocaine Relapse

From Comeback Anxiety

3/22/2012 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston's mother Cissy was shocked that her daughter was using cocaine at the time of her death but believes the relapse was triggered by anxiety over Whitney's comeback plans.

Sources very close to Cissy who have spoken with her in the last few minutes tell TMZ ... she believed her daughter was completely sober while shooting the movie "Sparkle." 

But Cissy says as Whitney got closer and closer to the Grammys -- where Whitney would make her comeback move -- she fell prey to the drug.

Cissy is saying hearing that Whitney was using again is like reliving her death -- it's that painful.

Hey! Only a MORON would take cocaine for anxiety. Can you think of something else to blame her death on?

Everyone seems to agree that Whitney had cleaned up. It seems she fell of the wagon and partied way too hard that week.

I don't think Whitney has been completely sober in the last 10 years. Mom is in serious denial. I am surprised that the family isnt calling for a murder investigation now though. Not that I think it was but they were beating that drum this whole time and now that they have the drowning listed I figured that would be the first thing they would say.

Ms. Cissy, I wish you ultimate peace in your grievance. You did your best. This is sad news. Bobby(idiot) met with her weeks before her death he probably supplied it to her.

Truth    

Raffles and Ray J are the culprits who supplied her with the drugs. Ray J is a known weed user and gave her that as the tox tests show and Raffles gave her the coke. #Truth!!

I feel bad for her mom. Whitney put her through hell with years of drugs abuse. It's not easy watching your kid slowly destroy themselves
