Whitney Houston's Mom

'DEVASTATED' By Death Report

4/5/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cissy Houston and the late Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston
's mother is "devastated" and "inconsolable" over the L.A. County Coroner's Autopsy Report that makes it clear ... Whitney was deep into cocaine when she died.

Cissy Houston is telling close friends ... she cried hysterically when she first heard about the Coroner's findings -- that white powder (which we know tested positive for cocaine), a drug spoon and other trappings of drug use were found in the hotel room. 

Cissy says her biggest fear is that people will now remember her daughter as a druggie, and not a talented singer and family woman.

Cissy singled out Whitney's performance of the National Anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl, saying, "This is the type of thing people should remember Whitney for."

Cissy added, "No one's perfect. Only the Lord can judge."

Whitney's family said after Bobby Brown's DUI that is why they want the daughter to stay away from him. Yet her mother was into cocaine and other drugs. The family needs to quit controlling Bobby Kristina and let her lead her own life, where ever that might take her.

She WAS a great singer...WAS
She chose the life of an addict, and those around her did not assist in stopping that life-style.
If it were a close friend, or family member of mine, I would do whatever it took to assist them in getting the help they required.
Obviously all of the "friends" that stated she was not using, well Denial is not just a river in Egypt.
She will be remembered for being a person who had it all, and decided to be a drug addict instead.

You can be a druggie-talented singer and a family woman all at the same time. It is seen every day. Some may judge her by her drug use however if she was a terrible mother you would hear about that first. She most likley never stopped using drugs and knowing all eyes were on her to see if she looked stoned she would feel she let everyone down. In the end she let herself down-her daughter & her family & friends..

We will always remember Whitney for her talent it over shadows her drug habits. Bottom line it is what it is. Whitney had raw talent and that's something you will not forget.

Cissy is right no one is perfect who are any of us to judge. I completely concur and feel that's how she should feel about her former son-in-law Bobby Brown. He is no different. Who is she and her family to JUDGE??? Shame on YOU!!!

Cissy has nothing to worry about. I think most of us have known for years, based on behavior, that Whitney was seriously on drugs, but we cared about her anyway. Her music has been the background music of our lives and we will ALWAYS remember her for that wonderful voice. The drug addiction is just a cautionary tale for all of us and our children.

Cissy, your daughter had a great voice at one time, but she hadn't had one in a long time. She will be remembered for having ruined her life and career because of her addiction to drugs and alcohol. I know this is devastating to you, but some good may come if this if people learn from her example.

Her mother is so right. It is a shame that we love to look at the bad things people do. The media should be ashamed and the readers. I am sure that Whitney loved the Lord with all her heart and soul. Take it from someone who has been there. She did so many good things and faced so many sad things in her life. Only one person can judge us and I believe that would be God. Whitney I believe is with God now and I am glad she touched my life. What a voice and a kind person she was. We put so much time and energy on entertainers. They never have any privacy. How would you like people to know your every move. I bet we all would have to answer to faults we have. I pray for her mom and family. What a beautiful person they lost. Whitney is now singing with the angels. No more pain. I pray God will comfort her family, friends, and fans. Amen!!!!!

I can understand her being devastated by the loss of her daughter, it's un natural in life for parents to bury their children, it should be the other way around... That said, I don't know why she is making it seem like it is news to her, She's known that it was the cocaine that played a pivotal role in Whitney's death, and her demise for that matter. I think she is just shocked and in denial, and won't admit the fact that her daughter had a long history with cocaine, and had probably been off the wagon for some time, at the very minimum, the last weeks to months of her life. Also, I'M sure she is not wanting to accept that no matter how successful her daughter was, that ultimately it was the freebasing cocaine for years that killed her daughter, and now her daughter is just another statistic... sad, but very true, whitney was a crackhead, just like Michael was a pill popping junkie! and The worst part is they brought it all upon themselves, and this could have been prevented, has whitney chosen to just put down the crack pipe and move on with her life, which, obviously, she couldn't ever do!!!
