Back in 2002 Whitney Houston sat down with Diane Sawyer to deny claims she was using crack cocaine infamously telling Diane, '"Crack is cheap. I make too much money to ever smoke crack. Let's get that straight. Okay? We don't do crack. Crack is whack."'
Turns out LA Reid was a one who set up the interview...
In his new memoir 'Sing to Me' LA Reid reveals he went to great lengths to set up the Whitney Houston / Diane Sawyer interview to help dispel the drug rumors surrounding Whitney at the time, but admits he had no idea she actually was addicted to drugs.
LA says he realized 'in an instant' how bad off she really was the moment the broadcast aired.
