A convicted drug dealer has claimed he sold drugs to troubled couple Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, just days after the R+B beauty checked into rehabilitation.

Kevin Skinner, who served a prison sentence in 1988 for selling narcotics, says he used to visit the duo to supply them with banned substances on a regular basis.

He says, "It was cocaine, marijuana, that kind of thing."

His claims blow apart the myth created by the I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU singer that she had freed herself of her drug habit in 2000.

She said at the time, "I don't like to think of myself as addicted. I like to think I had a bad habit which can be broken."

The MY LOVE IS YOUR LOVE singer was checked into a drug rehab clinic last Tuesday (16MAR04).
