The cover has been released to the public for a few days but Ms Houstons ex husband Bobby Brown only found out about it recently. When asked about the cover during an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, the 49 year old singer said ‘Why would he post that on his album cover? That’s really disgusting that he would do that. That’s in really bad taste,’ he added.

He then called Kanye ‘crazy’ and said ‘something should happen’ to him. ‘Now he’s pushing the bar a little bit. He needs somebody to slap him up or something. And I’m just the person to do it,’ said the former New Edition member.

Bobby Brown isn’t the only person upset. Whitney’s cousin Damon Elliott also criticized Kanye for the decision, calling it a ‘disgusting publicity stunt’.

Speaking to People Magazine, the music producer said ‘I’ve watched the train wreck happening, but I didn’t think he’d go this far in invading someone’s family privacy. To do something for a publicity stunt to sell records, it’s absolutely disgusting,’ adding that ‘it hurt my family and my daughter. It’s petty. It’s tacky.’

Damon said that his daughter found out about the picture and sent it to him: ‘I immediately got sick to my stomach because it took me right back to six years ago. When someone passes, you try to mourn and move on and remember the good times.’

The image Kanye’ bought the rights for, reportedly taken in 2006 inside Whitney’s Atlanta mansion, shows a messy bathroom vanity with drug paraphernalia strewn around the sink. It is said that Bobby Browns sister was the person who released the picture to the media.

Pusha explained they already had a picture for the album but Mr West changed his mind saying:’Now this other artwork is 85 grand. I said, ‘Hey, I don’t want to pay for that. And I wasn’t even going to ask you to pay for that. We picked what we picked. It’s here, it’s ready.’ Kanye’ apparently replied ‘No, this what people need to see to go with this music. I’ma pay for that.’ according to Pusha.
