Whitney Houston's Family

Bobby Brown's DUI Proves

He's a Bad Influence

3/28/2012 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston's mother believes Bobby Brown's DUI arrest proves what she's been telling people all along ... he's just a bad dude.

Sources close to Cissy Houston tell us ... she's always felt Bobby was a cancer ... who infected Whitney's life with negative influences.

We're told Cissy felt "vindicated" when she found out Bobby was arrested for driving drunk on Monday afternoon ... and believes the incident is exactly why she wants Bobby to "keep his distance" from his daughter Bobbi Kristina.

The Houstons believe Bobbi K has been in a "vulnerable place" since Whitney passed ... and as one source puts it, "This is the last person she needs to be around."

Instead, we're told Cissy wants Bobbi Kristina to hang around "positive mentors" ... like Clive Davis.

Child! Let it go! Blaming Bobby Brown's tacky ass for Whitney's death is NOT going to bring her back. According to her friends, Whitney was doing coke long before Bobby entered the picture.

And to Whitney's family... the fact that Whitney was divorced from him for like six years and continued to do drugs, eventually died while HER FAMILY was with her when and then they decided to remove the cocaine from the scene before the family decided it was a good idea to let Whitney's 19 year old daughter get drunk and supply her with sedatives after her Mom died sending her to the hospital twice that same day damn near killing her proves that YOU are even worse influences on her.

If that girl wants a shot at life she needs to stay as far away from Whitney's family as she can. THEY are the enablers.

Don't they think Bobby is mourning too? Whitney's relatives need to focus on Bobbi Kristina and leave Bobby alone.

Based on what I read online, both of Cissy's children, Whitney and Gary, are/were drug addicts. So what does that say about Cissy as a mother? I am one of many siblings and none of us are druggies or drunks! Thanks mom!

She thinks BK should hang around with Clive Davis???? How old is that guy? A friendship is okay, but I don't think a 19 year old needs to "hang" with a 70 year old.

Another crackhead is dead and buried. Can we please stop these stories? Nobody cares. She made her choices. Her mother is just in denial.

Of course Clive Davis who was paying Whitneys bills for years. She destroyed her voice and career.

Enough with blaming Brown. Enough with trying to sugarcoat Houston, she was no saint. She is not a ledgened and not an icon. She was a junkie. Pure and simple. That's her legacy. Her own doing.

no matter, yea he got arrested for a DUI, who doesn't? i'm not saying its right to drive drunk. She is presently a bitter old lady and i can't blame her for how she feels, but she should know this, Bobbi K ain't a kid no more, she can do whatever she wants. She's got bad influences everywhere she goes not only from her Dad.
