Houston mum's anger over death

Whitney Houston's mum is angry she died alone

Whitney Houston's mum has opened up about her daughter's death - saying she's angry she died alone.

The I Will Always Love You singer drowned nearly a year ago in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel at the age of just 48, following a battle with drug addiction.

Cissy Houston, 79, said she is still tormented by her daughter's sudden death, People, which is publishing exclusive excerpts of her new memoir, Remembering Whitney, reported.

"I'm angry she died alone, in those conditions," she said. "I'm still mad about that."

She said that when she tried to contact her, Whitney often didn't return her call.

Cissy doesn't believe former husband Bobby Brown is to blame for her drug problems, but she is angry "for the way he treated her".

She also writes for the first time about her daughter's relationship with female former assistant Robyn Crawford, who became her creative director.

"I just didn't want her with my daughter," she said. "I know nothing about a romantic relationship. That's what everybody said but they didn't know either."

Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
