Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston’s mother, believes Bobby Brown’s DUI arrest proves what she has been telling people all along he is just a bad influence.
Sources close to Cissy Houston told TMZ that she’s always felt Bobby Brown was a cancer who infected Whitney’s life with negative influences.
Cissy Houston felt “vindicated” when she found out Bobby Brown was arrested for driving under the influence 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 Kristina Brown 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, sources told TMZ that Cissy Houston wants Bobbi Kristina Brown to hang around “positive mentors” like Clive Davis.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston’s daughter, has been fighting her grandmother Cissy Houston tooth and nail to live her life in Atlanta on her own terms, say US reports.
According to HollywoodLife.com, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, and grandmother Cissy Houston, 78, haven’t been seeing eye to eye on anything lately — and that includes Whitney Houston‘s 22-year-old “secret son”, Nick Gordon.
Although earlier reports said that Cissy Houston is trying to evict Nick Gordon from her late daughter’s home because she thinks he is a bad influence on Bobbi Kristina, she was also been having to deal with her granddaughter’s refusal to leave Atlanta.
“Cissy Houston is worried sick about Bobbi Kristina,” a friend of Whitney Houston’s family told HollywoodLife.com.
“She tried to convince her to move back to New Jersey so she could be closer to Whitney’s side of the family, but apparently, Krissi wants to stay in Atlanta. Being in Atlanta is the only way she can feel remotely close to her mother.”

The friend continued: “[Bobbi Kristina] is determined to continue living in the same house she lived in with her mom these past years. As far as Nick Gordon is concerned, he is like her brother, and I seriously doubt Cissy will be able to evict him from the house. He is Krissi’s closest friend right now.”
According to sources, Whitney Houston raised Nick Gordon like a son and let him live with her and Bobbi Kristina 10 years ago.
Reports say Whitney Houston even included Nick Gordon in her will.
