It seems that Whitney’s cousin, Damon Elliot doesn’t speak for the entire family when he trashed the cover for Pusha T’s Daytona album. One of Whitney’s nephews, Gary Michael Houston thinks the blame should fall to the family member that sold the photo in the first place.
In HIS statement, He says, “Not to be divisive, but I’m of a different mindset when it comes to situations like this.”
He continues, “People will automatically look to people like Pusha T and Kanye West and try to place blame or say they have ill or malicious intent in order to gain publicity. But I get it.” He also mentions that he’s a fan of the album.
To Gary, the real villain here is the person who originally snapped the picture and sold it to tabloids years and years ago. “The person who violated the trust of my aunt by taking the photo and selling it to tabloids for their own personal and/or financial gain is more of a travesty to me,” Gary says. “People should research that — because whoever exposed it are the people who violated her trust, mistreated her, and who should ultimately be held accountable for contributing to circumstances surrounding her demise.”
