Relatives of Whitney Houston say they are “disgusted” with Kanye West using an old picture of Whitney’s bathroom with drugs on the counter to sell albums, and they think Kanye should know better than to exploit her death.
Damon Elliot, the son Dionne Warwick and cousin of Whitney Houston, said, “Let Kanye know that I am disgusted by the fact that y’all think it’s ok to license a photo of my late cousin’s hotel bathroom to spark horrible memories from the most tragic event my family had to face.”
He’s referring to the album cover for Pusha-T‘s new Kanye produced album, Daytona. The photo was taken in 2006 at Whitney's Atlanta home, and shows drug paraphernalia in a bathroom. The photo was allegedly taken after a particularly bad drug binge and Kanye reportedly paid $85,000 to license the pic for the album art.
Elliott is adamant that his family "doesn’t want to revisit the death in this way,” and wants her legacy to live.
